Harvest Potluck: Best Wishes to Roni & Sam

I started working at Crown Point last year as the Assistant Farm Manager and served for the last year as the Farm Manager.  Since the transition, I have received so much support from CSA members, staff, and volunteers – reminding me that this is a community to cherish.

Over the course of two seasons, I have learned many lessons, including my favorite: “Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”

At this time, I have decided to continue my journey elsewhere next year.  Although a difficult decision, at age 25 I feel an itching desire to explore new land. While I begin my new job search in the conservation agriculture field, I am starting to reflect on what Crown Point has given to me over the past two seasons (aside from an endless supply of tomatoes, hot peppers, and garlic).

I have worked with numerous mentors, staff, and volunteers who have shared their years of knowledge and outlook on life with me.  I have developed patience, time-management, and a thicker skin.

Roni Pasi, Farm Manager

For you, I hope that a new farmer will bring new ideas and a fresh start to become more involved with our farming community.  In our search for a new farmer, we have seen some outstanding candidates who are well poised to lead a successful farming season next year.  I will make sure we have a smooth transition, working here until December.

The importance of local food for our economy, our environment, and our health is more important than ever.  Your support is invaluable in making Crown Point what it is.

Below is an invitation to our potluck dinner on October 24, 2017.  We will celebrate this year’s season by enjoying our harvest, thanking our volunteers, and saying our goodbyes.

Take care,
Roni
