This farm grows organic vegetables for meal programs, food pantries and shelters while giving adults and children farming experience. It also has a "Children's Learning Garden" where camp groups come during the summer months to learn about where their food comes from and to plant, weed and harvest the garden. Volunteer opportunities: planting, cultivating and harvesting produce; usually you can take home some veggies for your efforts. To support the farm there's also a Community Supported Agriculture program where you can invest in the farm in return for regular delivery of produce to various sites including the farm. Sunday is the usual volunteer day; call if you can come on a weekday. Look forward to seeing you out at the farm!
