We invite you to join us this season for one or more of our Summer Volunteer Work Parties, to tend to the crops planted on our instructional plot on Morales Farm (Corner of Lovgreen & Hwy 305) and Historic Suyematsu Farm on Day Road. (Locations for the dates below to be determined and will be posted on our website calendar.) These work parties are a vital part of maintaining our crops over the summer in order to have a strong harvest this fall when students return.
Five work parties will be held this summer. They are scheduled on alternating Tuesdays, with 4 to be held in the morning, and 1 in the early evening:
June 30; 9:30 – 11:30am – Morales Farm
July 14; 9:30 – 11:30am
July 28; 5 – 7pm
August 11; 9:30 – 11:30am
August 25; 9:30 – 11:30am
Volunteers at Morales Farm will help out by hilling up potatoes and weeding the pumpkin patch. Suyematsu Farm work parties will center around mulching and fertilizing the historic strawberry plot.
So, mark your calendars and join us for a fun and productive time on the farm this summer. Thank you for your help keeping these programs growing!
