Last Saturday, we got to participate in the 63rd Street Farm's Earth Day celebration. IT WAS GREAT! We had such a great time, and were reminded (again) of what we love about this crazy business we've chosen. Here's what I mean.... Launching a food truck buisness is hard work. We've had plenty of challenges, and know we'll have plenty more. So be it. Because here's the thing: We get to work with and serve happy, positive, enthusiastic people who share our values about making a positive impact on our world through a focus on community.
This is me (Connie) with Amanda. She and her husband own the lovely little slice of heaven that is the 63rd Street Farm. In addition to providing food to the Boulder community, the farm offers a Retreat Center that hosts sustainable programs, educational retreats, permaculture classes and other workshops that revolve around the overwhelming conversation of creating a sustainable future. Awesome.
At the festival, we parked the bus right next to Settembre Cellars, who was handing out tastings of their old-world styled wines, crafted from Colorado grapes. If you've never sampled wine from this small family winery, you must. They are making some really great wine. And, if you live in Boulder, they will even deliver your wine to your door via bicycle delivery service.
And then there were those who came out for the celebration. We served over 100 delicious wild blueberry frozen yogurt cones to people teeming with spirit for the upcoming growing season at this Community Supported Agriculture farm.
There was hula hooping and baby animals, laughter and fun.
It was a GREAT Saturday.
Dont' forget to check out where we'll be this week! We update our route plans and menu every Friday.
See you soon!
