Fall newsletter is in the works – new oak folks and resources to talk about Bless those with time to write – and those who have shared stories and stores from last season: thanks to Tim, Dani, Myles and Nancy – this fall’s acorn processing workshops have seasoned nuts to demo (and make cookies from).
Our baskets are beginning to fill this month, but are still pretty green – the bakers racks and perforated pans donated last year are a dream for drying. The Cooperative can always use more AND dry room to store (if you have space). Got acorns? Got space? Send us a picture! Get in touch
Meantime, in between fall workshops – The FIRST New England Acorn Cooperative Community Cracking is scheduled for October 21, 2018. Following an acorn processing workshop with the Boston Food Forest Coalition, the Cooperative will make our “DaveBuilt” nut cracker available to the acorn gathering community to get cracking (we can even arrange to supply muscle if needed). Please message the Cooperative on FB to reserve a time slot. There will also be a TBD November Community Cracking date. Stay tuned – and join us for an October workshop.
Happy nut hunting!
Ana, Deb, Jesse & Daniela
