The Weblog

This page contains news, event information, and other items added by myself, the intrepid farmer-in-process at Old 99. I send out a message every week, but most are set with a delete date about two weeks later. I archive some of the posts if they have content other than weekly availability of produce and meat.

You can send me questions too, which if they are of a general nature, I can post to this Old99 blog.

Old 99 farm week of apr 23 2017

Two orders in this week as of tonite, Thursday. Does the weekly prompt memo really make a difference for people? Same fresh greens growing in the greenhouse, same eggs, frozen meats: chicken, lamb and pork, and cold storage crops. Lots to eat here. It’s all online easy to order.

Tomorrow morning our MP Filomena TAssi is holding an ‘tea time’ at 9:30 to 10:30am at her constituency office at 1686 Main St west. There is lots of parking at the site so why not drop in to tell her what you like and don’t like about the Justin record so far? I’m attending to plug the climate crisis and why we need leadership from Justin. Tassi has a facebook page and a Twitter account; her phone # is 905 529-5435.

This fall I have undertaken to host Guy McPherson, the conservation biologist who—2 has been alone in braving the storm of ridicule to get the news out that climate disruption is real and already happening, with dark consequences for all life on earth, including humans. you can find lots of his speeches on youtube. This is serious stuff. To fund the travel and event costs there is a crowdfunding site operational now. I wonder if any of you would consider passing the hat for $20 to help this along?

Healthy eating,
