Greetings CSA Members,

 Jeannine Laverty has been a part of this land and farm for longer than we have. She is a delightful human being who is an activist for many vital issues in our world. Please enjoy her contribution this week:

“As I write, thunder has been banging for half an hour. The first lightning strike just shrieked straight down. Feels like Iowa, where I grew up and feel so glad to not be living now: drought, politics, water pollution from over-fertilization.

This CSA season marks my 32nd on the land that is now Denison Farm, cradled by a river once fished by, yes, the Schaghticoke people, now sometimes by Errol. I’ve helped two farmers care for this land. The first was Janet Britt, who farmed a much smaller part of it than Brian and Justine. I know Janet’s Field and the River Field better than all the others: Janet’s, where I’ve weeded most the years I’ve returned to volunteering, as I started. I weed everywhere I’m sent, but in the early Denison days we thinned carrots as well as weeded them in rows so close to the river that now, 30 years later, the shade from the much taller trees lets non domesticated plants flourish.

When, on the CSA packing line, I ask questions about what cover crop (see last week’s newsletter) will be sown in the tomato house, Brian’s pondering and others’ input gives me an exciting possibility for work that I have only done once before with dear fellow workers now otherwise engaged. History with a piece of land and its buildings carries precious past as well as finger exercises for the future. As Wendell Berry might say to me: “Stop talking and Get to work!” (Orion magazine interview with Tim de Christopher, 2019.).”

Wishing you the very Best – Justine
