August? Already?! August is a whirlwind of living in two different worlds at once. We haul watermelon alongside pumpkins, harvest zucchini with butternuts, process green tomatoes and early apples. We sweat in the August heat, and cool mornings raise goosebumps on our skin. Brick-red sunflowers in their prime signal summer; red buckeye leaves say fall’s foot is in the door.
August 2020? Like the rest of the world, we’re learning to adapt to continuous challenges and changes. We are finding increasingly virtual ways to help people engage with the real world. We’ll be sure to keep you posted about all these awesome happenings on social media. In this newsletter, we’re sharing one of the most exciting changes: our new COMCorps crew! Many of you have already had a chance to meet them out in the community. You can learn more about them below, and check out everything they’ve had a chance to do in just a couple weeks at CFI! Like we said … August is a whirlwind!
Also included below you’ll find a "Summer Glory" mini photo gallery. So much beauty and garden goodness!
Joy, gratitude, seeds, sweat, sunshine, teamwork, and thunderstorms,
The CFI team
