WHEN: Until restrictions associated with responding to the Coronavirus pandemic response have been lifted, the schedule for Farm Group work sessions will be announced weekly.
When life returns to normal, we will again start meeting on Monday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the garden shed! Please note during the summer heat, July and August, the Group will meet Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm and Friday mornings from 9:00 to 11:00 am.
WHERE: The garden shed is located down the walking path at the intersection of 7th and Banker, or via the gravel farm road off Farm Court near the Community Barn. Upon arrival, ask to speak with one of the four 2020 Leadership Team members (Cheryl Cook, Laurel Dow, Sharon Halvorsen, or Sallie Morse) to get started. Look for ladies wearing very colorful hat bands!

Due to the wind we had to cancel Monday night’s work session. We are having a pop-up planting party on Wednesday, April 7 from 11 am – 1 pm.
