New Summer Hours

The Free Farm just continues to grow, both in its vibrancy and its mission. On Saturday, we had our first sidewalk farmstand and forty pounds of lettuce and greens were given away to neighbors and volunteers. On Monday bees arrived to live in their new hive and they have been enjoying the sunflowers and poppies on the hillside. And today, a demonstration container garden was started to illustrate how folks with only a little bit of space can still grow food.

In case you haven't been able to stop by on Wednesdays because of your work schedule, we're keeping the farm open later during the summer. Starting in June, you can come by any time between 10am and 6:30pm to lend a hand. Whether you come to a workday on a Wednesday or a Saturday there are plenty of projects to get involved with. Come learn how to plant seeds, transplant starts, dig beds, thin seedlings, turn compost and harvest food. We would love to see you!
