April Work Day: Sat 4/22 11 AM-2 PM!

We’re here! The first work day of the 2023 season is coming up next Saturday, April 22 from 11 AM-2 PM. Join the farm crew as we clear and prep beds, mulch pathways (see request: wheelbarrows!) and get the garden space ready to grow SO MANY VEGGIES – and herbs and flowers – this year. We’ll be doing a lot of digging around in dirt, compost, and the brush pile so be sure to grab your gloves for this one. The Community Farm logo screen will be out and ready, so bring anything you’d like to print! And of course, it wouldn’t be a true work day without snacks, drinks and the same music playlist you’ve heard for the past three years. See you soon!

Can’t make it this first work day? Don’t worry! You can stop by any time to check in on the progress of the farm and we’ll have another work day in mid-late May for transplanting most of our summer crops. Reach out here or to athenscommunityfarm[at]gmail.com with any questions!
