I am so glad that KALE is the first main event for 2015 SICSA. Kale or borecole is a vegetable with green and/or purple leaves. The leaves from the central base do not form a head. It is considered to be closer to wild cabbage than most domesticated forms of vegetables.

The compost project is going to take off this year and we'll need more bins with which to distribute the finished compost. If you have spare buckets, plan to bring them to the first few distributions (and keep one for yourself). What works really well are big plastic kitty-litter buckets like the one pictured below.

New York’s food, farms, and agriculture are under threat from fracking, a dangerous gas-drilling method that threatens the purity of our water, air, and land.

Hi Folks, Well we started out too dry and too cold and now we’ve had too wet and too hot. So in just the first two months of the growing season we’ve covered all the bases. Someone asked me a few weeks back if I thought it would continue to be dry and I replied that I reckoned it would remain very dry until it began to rain too much( I didn’t actually say “reckoned” that’s just literary embellishment). I didn’t expect, nor wish to be proven correct so soon. But it seems that extremes are the new normal and we’re just going to have to cope and adapt.
