August Work Day: Sat 8/27 8AM – 10 AM

Grab your coffee and come pull some weeds at the Farm this Saturday, August 27 from 8 AM – 10 AM (everyone liked the early hours last month so we’re running with it). As we close out some of our summer crops, we’ll use the morning to care for what’s already growing for fall (beans! greens! broccolini!) and plant anything we’re missing.

Can’t make it? Stop by any time to pick, weed or just enjoy the space. We’ll have another work day in late September 🙂
