Please join us as we celebrate Earth Day on May 7th by opening up our fields to everyone! See all that our farm has in store for the season to come.
We will have activities for children (planting seeds in our Children’s Garden and helping to paint vegetable signs for the fields) and an opportunity to take a walking tour of our fields to find out what produce awaits our lucky members this upcoming season. Our CSA share members pick up produce at our farm on a weekly basis, providing them a cost-effective way to stock their fridges with local, sustainably-raised vegetables all summer long. We still have shares left, so come and learn more about us! Our season begins the last week of May through the end of October.
OPEN HOUSE ACTIVITIES:
Field Tours with Farmer Tim: ongoing from 11am to 3pm
Painting Vegetable Signs with Farmer Sam: 12pm to 2pm
Planting in the Children’s Garden with Education Director Jen: ongoing from 1pm to 3pm
Vegetable Q & A with Chef-Instructor Jennifer: 1pm to 2pm (learn how to best prepare a summers worth of vegetables--free recipes too!)
