As we need the end of Fall 2012 signups and the begging of delivery, we are all getting into the Fall spirit. For a Produce style laugh, some deep sarcasm, and language not for the faint of heart check out:
“When my guests come over it’s gonna be like, BLAMMO! Check out my shellacked decorative vegetables”
Wanna know something awesome?!
Tomorrow at Hunger Lunch, the awesome people from Coon Rock Farm (our partner) will be in the Pit giving cooking demos for anyone interested in (or already signed up for) Sprout! They will be here from 11 – 1 pm.
We would like to also take this time to remind everyone that the last day for signups for the Fall 2012 season is September 30th (i.e. very soon!). You may sign up online or in the Pit during Hunger Lunch!

Welcome back to a new season of Sprout! Starting this Wednesday, September 12th signups will be open for the 8 week Fall Season of Sprout. Lookout for the new details- extended summer produce, bumper stickers, meat, egg, and honey weekly opt ins, and much more!
Hope you enjoyed your bundles this week. We always have a good time putting them together, and it’s even more rewarding when we get to give them to you!
Recently, we’ve come across the issue of late pickups. That is, how to get your bundle if you can’t come to distributions on Tuesdays or if you accidentally didn’t pick it up when you were supposed to. Unfortunately, our old policy wasn’t so clear on this, so we’ve come up with a new one, as follows:
Bundles that aren’t picked up during distribution will be left in the Campus Y until 6 p.m. on Wednesday. After this time, any bundles left over will be donated to the food bank. If you didn’t pick up your bundle on Tuesday and can’t come on Wednesday text us at (919) 628-0170 before or during distribution and we will be able to accomodate you.
If you have any other questions, please don’t be afraid to shoot us an email or text us. We’re here to help! See you next Tuesday, and go Heels!
We’ve got lists, supplies, to-dos… and soon, produce. We’re excited for tomorrow! Even if you’re not picking up produce, please feel free to stop by and say hi. Check out our Facebook event – we’ll be having performers and fun times galore.
If you are a Sprout customer, please remember to bring a form of ID so we can get out bundles to everyone who needs them.
Still interested in signing up? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or come see us at the kickoff event tomorrow to get on our listserv for the fall.
We welcome any feedback or suggestions you have. This is a pilot venture, and your comments will only help us grow!
