Now for the most glamorous of all work events – mulch day! Join the farm team on Saturday May 7 from 10 AM – 1 PM as we mulch pathways and fence lines around our newly built garden beds. Have a truck or flatbed and want to make a few short runs to the brush pile? We’d love your help! Comment here or email athenscommunityfarm[at]gmail.com.
If loading and unloading mulch isn’t your thing there is still plenty of clean up and maintenance work to do at the farm. Plus, we just like your company. Please stop by!
Next up – Our next work day is planned for SUNDAY May 22. This will be our final prep day for the season and we’ll be planting our beds, landscaping outside the fence, painting signs and doing any leftover building projects (wash stations, work tables, more beds?). Oh and there will be snacks, of course.
