Everyone can be part of sustainable food production. This Spring at the farm, we invite you to bring family, spend some time outside, meet new friends, and participate in the growing process, from planting seeds to bringing food to the table. 

Each time you come back, you’ll see how the plants you worked on have grown, until vegetables, fruit, and herbs are ready to harvest. Take home a box of fresh produce - discounted for Family Day participants - and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Literally!
