Thanks for supporting the farm by making it out this month to weed! We removed more than 10 wheel barrow full loads of weeds. Now that the weeds are removed, we can begin to put down the bark mulch to prevent this many weeds from growing.
Check out the pictures below, including the before and after pictures of the vegetables.

Dear Fellow Big Wave Advocates,
I have a lot of feelings about yesterday’s CCC meeting.
The feeling that stands out to me the most is pride. Pride in our group, of all who came to the meeting yesterday. Of those who spoke in front of the commissioners and the crowd so articulately and accurately.
Of those who spoke from the heart.
Of all of us who treated the opposition with civility.
Of those who couldn’t be with us yesterday and have supported Big Wave all along.
I’m proud to stand next to you literally and figuratively.
I don’t know what’s next, but I am glad that my family does not stand alone.
A big “thank you” to all the farmers who were able to make it out to August’s Farm Day! It was a joy to see that our hard work on the farm is paying off; the radishes are ready to harvest!
Here are some pictures from the day
