Work Party Sunday June 7th-Irrigation Installation

We've been busy installing an irrigation system at the farm but there's still plenty more to do. Not only is an irrigation system more efficient and cost effective but also extremely important to grow our crops during this very dry spring. We need your strong bodies and helping hands to get this task completed. Please join us on Sunday, June 7, 2015 between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM to help out. You'll get your hands dirty, learn some new skills and help us get a watering system in place for all our crops. Click here to sign up. You can work as little or as long as you want, we're always grateful for the help you provide. The farm thrives on community support. We look forward to seeing you!
