Refer a friend, get $10!  We know you’re our best cheerleaders, and we want to thank you! Now when you tell a friend about Riverdog’s CSA and they sign up for their first month of boxes, you’ll both get a $10 credit on your account!  That means a free dozen eggs, some Riverdog pork, or just some extra veggies coming your way. Look out for an email in the next couple days with more details, and make sure to grab a couple flyers at your pick up site this week!

 

Field Notes:  The Sand Creek Fire is completely contained. We are so grateful to the firefighters for their efforts to extinguish the wildfire as fast as possible, from start to finish it lasted about 4 days. The combination of waning winds and swift responses of firefighting by air (jets dropping fire retardant), ground crews, and helicopter helped get the fire under control. While many acres burned (over 1000), homes and properties were protected. One neighbor lost a 25-acre wheat field, there were 7 outbuildings burned, and one of the rafting companies lost some of their equipment. The other rafting company in the area is supporting the one with the losses by sharing vehicles and boating equipment.
