We need lots of helping hands to prepare for our farm for our Spring crops and our fruit tree plantings. Maybe you don't have time to help on an ongoing basis but would like to help on a project basis...WE NEED YOUR HELP(Groups Welcome)! Volunteers will be removing plant material, spreading compost, spreading cover crops and cleaning/organizing our workspace.
These cleanup days will occur each Saturday in April(weather permitting). If you are interested in volunteering on a more regular basis... we start in May. Please take a look at the separate Smart Farm volunteer match post. Thank you!
