Saying Goodbye to the Summer and Hello to the Fall

Hello all OC enthusiasts!

As the final weeks of summer stumble by into the nascent weeks of the fall, Organic Campus will be making some of its own transitions for the season. First up, service for next Tuesday the 24th will unfortunately have to be cancelled due to a conflict with the First Year streetfest taking place in the afternoon on McTavish. So if you do not see our tent outside of the Shatner building /University Centre next Tuesday, don't panic, we'll be back up and running there the following Tuesday, the 31st.

Now with such an abundance and variety of produce, we would like to again offer a 10$ basket option to the community. With bins full of apples, potatoes, Swiss chard, kale and other greens, tomatoes, broccoli, celery, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, herbs, and a slew of others, we would like to see you leave with your arms laden with such fresh delights. The fall will only bring more, so don't forget to bring your reusable bag and your friends each week since food is the best shared.

There is one major change for the fall to note: as of September 8th, Organic Campus will be participating in the McGill Farmers Market for the entire season, which takes place every Wednesday at the Three Bares Park right in the upper center of the main campus. So starting that week, there will be no service on our traditional Tuesdays as it will take place on Wednesdays instead.

With the new academic year starting up, we are also on the lookout for anyone interested in helping out at our tent or behind the scenes with our service. If you'd like to join our team, come stop on by or email us at organiccampus@gmail.com.

We've had fun this summer getting to know some of you out in the sun and look forward to another season of bringing the land's local bounty to your plate.

Organically yours,

Organic Campus

Cheap enough to have a 10 dollar basket for apples, potatoes, Swiss chard, kale and other greens, tomatoes, broccoli, celery, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, herbs, and a slew.
