Wellness Talk: An Introduction to
Tibetan Buddhist Meditation

April 18, 2015 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Lama Yeshe Palmo, a Tibetan Buddhist Monk, will give an introduction to the Tibetan Buddhist Meditation calm-abiding technique of shinay. She will guide you through the practice and talk about the benefits of meditation. Bring a meditation cushion (or pillow) if you have one and want to sit on the floor.
Coffee, tea and farm-baked goodies will be served. 

Spring and Summer CSA Memberships
Are you new to this CSA idea?  CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and CSAs can take many forms.  Bartlett's offers these CSAs as a convenience to customers, whereby 'shares' are packed each week and picked up at the farm.  Each share is comprised of vegetables and greens that have been freshly harvested, recipes to use those veggies, plus occasional surprises.  To place your order for the 2015 Spring Greens CSA, or for our Summer CSA, go to our website. 
Wine is Back...
...and while it doesn't exactly count as a serving of fruit, it can certainly enhance most any meal whether it's a picnic or formal get-together.  Neil has hand selected a number of great wines from $10 on up so no matter what your wine budget, you can find something to accompany your meal.

Let's Get Growing!
Here's a little glimpse of what's growing on
behind the scenes at the farm.
April is Free Repotting Month!
Is your African violet too vigorous?
Has your Ivy gone insane?
Is your Pilea pathetic?
Is your Croton not well-contained? 
Is your Hibiscus not happy?
Has your fern lost its fronds?

We can help! Bring in your overgrown houseplant and purchase a new pot, and the re-potting service is on us! Fresh potting soil, time-release fertilizer and a little TLC will have your houseplants ready to thrive!
