    I am just wondering, for people who aren’t able to attend this event, is it still possible for general public to purchase red fife seeds (or flour)?

  2. Ayla Says:

    Hi Olivia,

    Farm Folk/City Folk is the group organizing the event, so they would be the ones to ask about getting seeds. As for flour – we’ll be selling shares after tonight’s event. First chance to buy will go to subscribers on our mailing list. If we hear about any other opportunities to buy local flour we will post about them here.

    Hi, I’m not on the mailing list and already have way too many lists that I am a part of (email mayhem), will you announce the sale of shares on this site as well?

  4. Ayla Says:

    Hi Ali,

    We will announce the start of share sales on the website, but it won’t be possible for anyone who isn’t on the list to purchase until we’ve offered shares to all of the listees. If there are shares remaining after the folks on the list have had a chance to buy then we will open it up to others.
