When the weather causes us to cancel a scheduled service day or event, here is what we will do in order to communicate a cancellation quickly and efficiently.
- We would ask that everyone check the Fayetteville Weather Forecast the evening before a scheduled service day. Please remember if there has been heavy rain in the past 48 hours the soil conditions may be too wet for planting and/or harvesting.
- The decision whether to cancel a service day will be made at 7:30 a.m. the morning of the event. Cancellation notices will be distributed at that time.
- If you don’t hear from us or see something posted via the methods listed below, you can assume all events for the scheduled day are still a go.
- If we do have to cancel a scheduled service day, we would ask that 1) You spend the time with your family investing in our community together (The Cafe runs on Saturday mornings & could be a great alternative when it rains) & 2) Please sign up to come at the next available service day (Cobblestone Project Events). When we cancel a service day, we will have twice as much work the following week, so we can still use your help.
Notification of Cancellation
- If you have registered via the Cobblestone Project Events page, you will receive an email cancellation notification.
- We will post cancellation information on our Social Media Networks:
- If there are any questions, you may email TheFarm@CobblestoneProject.org with questions and we will respond as soon as possible. Please note that after 7:30 a.m. the farm email accounts may not be checked again until after the scheduled start time.
One of the most remarkable things about The Farm is how we continue to learn how completely dependent we are upon the weather for the success of our efforts. We need the sunshine, rain, cool days, warm days and proper moisture in the soil all in the proper proportion for the plants to produce a harvest.
This connection to the earth and its rhythms and seasons can truly be a gift in our frantic, high speed and overly connected lives as a way to slow down and enjoy the things that have been given as a gift to use. So when it rains, we rejoice because without it nothing would grow. We must release our desire to control things like these that we were never created to control, and in doing so lean upon the knowledge that we are just a smaller part of greater story being told in the world around us.
With this perspective, we sometimes have to be okay when it rains and storms despite our schedules and plans. When this happens, we will make every effort to notify everyone in a timely manner so that the time you have offered to serve our community can be returned to you. If we failed, we are deeply sorry. Please let us know how we can improve so that it does not happen again.
