  1. I’m planning to sign up for this workshop but I think February 4th is a Saturday, not a Sunday.

  2. I just tried calling to get a place in this workshop for Saturday but no one answered the phone. Please reserve me a space in the workshop. I am coming from Rockland so will need to know for sure.

  3. Hi Carol, Sorry about that, our staff have been in a meeting all day, we’re selecting CSA farms & artists for CSA: Community Supporting Arts. Please call again if you don’t hear by tomorrow (Friday). I am writing this from home and don’t have access to the sign up sheets so cannot take core of it right now.
