    I hope the week is going well for everyone—here at McEvoy we are trying to catch up before the olive harvest. Samantha and I were talking about our available spaces and would like to extend the invitations to growers, farmers and wineries that are looking for space after the fires. One limitation is that we ask any interested growers to be organic, as we need to keep our CCOF certification.
     
    We have:
    • Large greenhouse: propagation tables included
    • Hoop houses: 2 available
    • Garden: Less than an acre of available land for next year’s planting
    • Winery: temperature controlled barrel room and large open space for tanks, equipment, etc.
     
    Please pass it along to other folks that may be in need. We would love to help!
     
    Thanks,
    Ria
