Mountain Bounty Organic Produce Program



Would you like to receive a weekly delivery of fresh, seasonal produce, locally grown and straight from the farm?

The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program is steadily picking up momentum with more participants joining the program each week! The CSA winter program currently runs for 24 weeks for veggies (deliveries through May 14, 2015) and 17 weeks for fruit (deliveries through March 25, 2015). Box varieties are delivered to the Trout Creek Recreation Center and will be available for pickup anytime between 2-10 p.m. on Thursdays, starting Nov. 20 (one week before Thanksgiving).

By participating in a CSA Program you have a direct relationship with the local Mountain Bounty Farm which delivers fresh produce on a weekly basis straight from the farm. See Mountain Bounty Farm for more details.

Interested? It’s not too late to join. Sign up here or contact Dana with Member Services at 530-582-9656 or via email at dherlihy@tahoedonner.com.

Controlled Burns Scheduled for Fall

Forestry Crew to Burn Slash Piles

During the fall season, the Tahoe Donner Association forestry department will once again be burning piles of vegetative debris throughout the property. The department has obtained two separate permits that allow us to burn material. A project burn permit has been obtained from Truckee Fire Protection District (TFPD), which gives us permission to burn numerous, larger piles than allowed under the residential burn permit. An additional air pollution permit has been obtained from the Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District. This permit provides guidelines on which days to burn large piles with proper air dispersion to avoid affecting the local population.

Before TDA forestry crews burn piles on any given day, we notify TFPD, CAL FIRE, US Forest Service and any agency that may see or be affected by the burning operation. Locally, TDA’s Member Services Office will have a list of the daily burning locations. At the burn site, signs will be posted notifying passersby of the operation.

The concentrated areas of burning to be completed include: Bennett Flat Road, Tundra Drive/KT Court, Falcon Point Place/Muhlebach Way, Northwoods Boulevard/Chamonix Road, Skislope Way, Cristallina Way and Euer Valley.

Are You Burning Debris Legally?



Burn permits are required for members of the association for debris burning. Burning season usually starts around the end of October. Once we receive several inches of measurable precipitation and it is deemed safe to burn piles, CAL FIRE will lift the burn ban in the Truckee area. Tahoe Donner does not regulate the burning of debris; however, burning in the association is only permitted once the burn ban has been lifted through Dec. 31 of a given year.

To burn dead limbs, pine needles and other vegetative debris collected from your improved property, you must obtain a residential burn permit from either the Truckee Fire Protection District (TFPD) located at 11473 Donner Pass Road or CAL FIRE located at 10277 Truckee Tahoe Airport Road. Undeveloped properties must obtain a project burn permit from TFPD as well as an air pollution permit. Once you obtain your burning permit and intend to burn on a given day, you must call 530-582-1027 to confirm it is a permissible burn day. Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District manages the burn day status with the predicted weather conditions. If it is a burn day, you must then call TFPD to report you are burning at your given location.

The following are burning permit terms for vegetative material:

• Maximum pile size is four feet in diameter.
• The area within ten feet of the outer edge of the pile must be maintained free and clear of all flammable material and vegetation.
• An adult must be in attendance with a shovel until the fire is out.
• A water supply must be located at the burn site.
• It is a good idea to cover your piles before fall rain to keep the material dry for efficient burning with little pollution.

If you have any questions about burning on your property, please call TFPD at 530-582-7850 or the forestry department of Tahoe Donner at 530-587-9432.
