Farm Meetings & Work Days

One work session on Monday June 29nd from 9:30 - 11:00 AM. 

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Governor's Order to Self Isolate:

  • Work parties will be limited in size, to no more than 4 volunteers per session
  • Volunteers will need to sign up in advance for a work party slot
  • Strict social distancing, disinfecting procedures, and health practices will be observed

Monday will continue to be the primary day for Work Parties, with up to three sessions each Monday (dependent on number of available volunteers).

However,  meeting schedules and times are subject to change from week to week, based on our city's and community's response to the pandemic.

Farm Notes 2021 Season

FARM NOTES 3/23/2021
Tuesday, March 23, 2021

We are excited to start planting seeds at the community farm. We have had a group of volunteers who helped prep our raspberry and blackberry areas for the season and with that task nearly completed we are ready to focus on other areas of the farm.  We will be working at the farm on Monday, March 22 from 4-6. We will once again be using Sign.com for volunteers to sign up to work.  Knowing who is coming and how many people are coming in advance helps us plan better work sessions. There will be 12 spaces available for Monday. Tasks for Monday include:

  • Planting sugar snap peas, spinach, carrots, radishes, and cilantro
  • Cleaning up dead rhubarb leaves and side dressing rhubarb with compost
  • Raking the straw back from the garlic and side dressing with cow manure
  • Placing new Netafim lines in raspberry and blackberry areas-bring heavy gloves and wear long sleeves for this task
  • Assorted tasks in Children’s Garden area
  • Weeding in various areas in preparation for spring planting

Please remember to:

  • Wash your hands right before arrival as water is OFF at the farm
  • Bring hand sanitizer if you have it
  • MASK REQUIRED to protect yourself and others
  • No children at this time
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of social distance when working
  • Check your email 30 minutes before heading to the farm in case of cancellations
