July Work Day: UPDATED TIME Sat 7/23 8AM – 10 AM

It’s mid July and the farm is bursting with cucumbers, squash, peppers, (almost) tomatoes and…weeds. Join the Community Farm team on July 23 from 11 AM – 1 PM as we tackle some of the more overgrown areas both inside and outside of the beds. We’ll also be maintaining our trellising and fixing the poor signs that fell down in the last storm. It’s going to be a hot one so wear your best wide-brimmed hat and bring extra water. We’ll have the tent up for when you need a break from the sun.

Miss out on last months orientation event? We may be able to sneak in a few harvesting and plant care tips as we work.
