September Work Day: Sat 9/25 12-3 PM

Come by the community farm this Saturday, Sept 25 starting at noon for our next volunteer work day! We anticipate a light day this month, so stop by early to help clean up beds, plant some of our last seedlings for the season and do some general maintenance. Can’t make this month? Keep an eye out for the October date – we’ve got some fun plans (DIY screen printing, anyone?) for the group!

When
Saturday, August 25
12-3 PM (may end earlier if work is done!)

Where
Athens Community Farm
39 Third Street, Athens NY (right behind the Athens Volunteer Fire Dept.)

Goals for the day

  • Clear out the last of the summer plants that are done producing
  • Amend soil as needed for new and working beds
  • Transplant seedlings + direct sow fall crops
  • General cleanup/maintenance

What to bring
Gloves
Small trowel or weeding tools

A few final lettuce plants going into the beds this week. We’ll add cover if needed to keep them warm through any early frosts!
