Corn Planting with the Davis CA Growing Project this Saturday!

Greetings from the DCC Growing Project!

We have some corn to plant and we hope you'll join us Saturday morning!! This winter's dry weather delayed the decision about whether to plant at all this year, but we're happy to report that the project is on and we will once again plant, grow and sell sweet corn to raise funds for the Foods Resource Bank. We apologize for the late notice about planting, but ask for your understanding; in farming, decisions sometimes need to be made at the last minute and there isn't much we can do about it.

It's FUN, appropriate for all ages, and doesn't take that long when there's a big crowd. Plus, the weather should be absolutely gorgeous, in the low 70s (no promises, though--after all, it is mother nature!) Corn will be planted in a field adjacent to the one we planted in last year, north of Esparto.

We are so excited to have your support for the DCC Growing Project this year, and we encourage you to get out there and get your hands dirty in the corn field! Last year our efforts resulted in a donation of over $4,500 to Foods Resource Bank in support of its overseas agricultural projects, and we'll need everyone's help in order to do it again in 2014. We hope you'll consider inviting someone new to participate in the project, whether they are affiliated with DCC or not--all are welcome!

See you in the field!
