Fresh from the Fields – 11.8.11

8 Nov

Thank to all of our CSA members that took the time to answer our survey’s.  We really appreciate the feedback. 

I am not the best with spelling.  The thing is that I am actually an immigrant.  Permanant Resident non the less…  But here is my story and how I came to Santa Barbara. 

My name is Julie Beaumont, I am a French Canadian, aka Quebecoise from Montreal.  I travelled to Europe in 2001.  In Paris, I meet a men that I felt in love with.  He brought me back here!  He is native to Goleta.  Chris Potter (www.chrispotterart.com).   When I got my work permit in 2005, I started at Fairview Gardens.  I then got pregnant and had to leave to care for myself and  regularly lifting 50lbs was out of  question.  I recall Michael Ableman asking if I wanted a pay increase;)  I told him that I would be back!   And here I am  back after 5 years, 2 kids (now 3 and 5), AND 5 years of working for Earthtrine farms at the Farmers Market.    I am very happy to share the love of Fairview and of Local Food. 

I learned English, when I was 19 years old.  I lack knowledge on grammar and structuring sentences (maybe because I think backward compare to English. ahhaah.)  Anyhow., I hope my lack of English is not bothering too many people.  I understand.  But I do really care about doing the best I can. 

At this point, waiting for someone to correct my writting is not a possibility.  We need things done!  And that’s what I do.  But if someone has time to reply promptly and feel that they could help me:  email julie@fairviewgardens.org
