We're on the lookout for the following items:
- A laminating machine; it doesn't need to make big signs, but they do need to be stiff enough to withstand some rain and wind--flimsy won't work. (If you have access to one, but don't want to donate it, that's good too! See below...)
- Roadside or yard signs made of corrugated plastic. They often have two little metal legs, and you see them advertising housing developments and politicians. We would like to re-purpose them as our u-pick signs. We're hoping to velcro the laminated signs over top of the old message, so we can direct you to your u-pick kale, lettuce, and so forth. We're not suggesting you steal ones that are in use, but if you see some that are no longer needed, please pick them up for us.
We're also looking for one or two people:
- Someone who likes to u-pick, and wants to help us post signs as needed to make the crops easier to find. The sign posting is pretty easy! It just requires some walking around each week to put a few up and take a few down. If you have access to a laminating machine at home or at work, that could save us from finding one of our own.
If you've ever tried to u-pick at the farm, you've noticed that it can be hard to find what you're looking for. Bear with us! We're know we have a problem, and we admit we need help.
