About the Event
Seven months ago, we planted garlic. Now that we've passed summer solstice, it's time to harvest!
Join us in the field. We'll pull garlic, clean it off, and braid it into strands. We'll also harvest the "volunteer" wheat and collect straw from the garlic beds. Finally, we'll spread and incorporate compost to get the soil ready for the next crop.
You're welcome to stick around from noon to 12:30 to pick berries to take home. If you're planning on berry picking, we recommend closed-toed shoes and long pants to protect you from poison ivy and to limit ticks. (In fact, we always suggest a tick check after your farm visits.)
All ages are welcome. This includes families, folks of diverse abilities, and any religious background. There will be tasks for all ages and abilities.
Dress for heat! Bring water, sun and rain protection, good shoes, clothes to get dirty in, and any snacks you might need. We will provide gloves and tools, but feel free to bring your own as well.
Please come for whatever amount of time works for you – any help is appreciated.
Accessibility: There are flat, unpaved, wide walkways in the field. A composting toilet for your use is located in the field. Please email email@example.com with accessibility requests and questions.
COVID: This event is outdoors and distanced, but please **bring a mask** in case there are times where we need to be in closer proximity.
Weather: This event is outdoors. In case of severe weather, we may cancel. You will receive an email by 8pm the evening before the event in case of cancellation.
You will receive our address upon registration.
