Happy Autumn

With the change of season comes a change in our market schedule.  This Tuesday, September 27th, will be the last Tuesday market of the season (because its getting darker earlier).  Our produce will still be available at our Saturday Farm Stand and the Allen Street Farmer’s Market through October.

Saturday’s at the Farm (653 S Hayford) 9am-noon
Wednesday’s at the Allen Street Farmer’s Market 2:30-6:30pm

Call for volunteers!
Our hardworking apprentices have each chosen a special project to complete for the farm and they need extra hands to make them happen.  We need volunteers to help on these dates:

  • Tuesday, September 27th, 5-7pm and Saturday, October 8th, 9am-noon:  Assist Ben with his landscaping project to create a more welcoming and beautiful entrance to the farm.  Plant native perennials and shade tolerant plants, finalize the fence reinforcement in the front (to keep the groundhogs out next spring), apply compost and mulch, weed the fence-line, and much more.
  • Saturday, October 1st, 9am-noon:  Assist Dominique with her compost project that will provide the farm with lots of fertile compost to boost our soils.  Build a three-bin composting system with straw bales, set up a tarp to protect it during the winter, tend to our current compost piles, and more.

If you know you are interested in volunteering, please RSVP at 999-3916 so that Ben and Dominique can know how many helpers they will have.  Otherwise, you are ALWAYS welcome to stop by anytime during Farm Stand hours to volunteer for an hour or two or three!
