Harvesting Sweet Potatoes – Community Volunteer Day
Time & Location
About the Event
Come to Yesod Farm+Kitchen for a volunteer day as we harvest our sweet potato crop! Sweet potatoes are the final harvest of our farming season and are an excellent storage crop that we hope will feed us and our communities throughout the winter. 30-40% of our harvest will be donated, in partnership with Root Cause Farm, to the community. You’ll see some of the other 60-70%+ at our future events.
Sweet potato harvest from 2-6pm looks like: cutting plants, loosening soil, digging and collecting sweet potatoes, cleaning off dirt, moving sweet potatoes into crates and into the truck. There will also be additional farm tasks available including shucking beans and spreading mulch.
Then stick around from 6-7pm for some warm soup and sweet community. The soup will be vegan and gluten free. Feel free to bring other food to supplement. Register for this event in order to share other dietary needs that you would like accommodated.
This event is outdoors and distanced, but please **bring a mask** in case there are times where we need to be closer. All are welcome! This includes families and folks of diverse abilities. There will be tasks for all ages and abilities.
Dress for the sun and bring clothes for the cold. Bring a water bottle, a mask, and a mug for farm-fresh herbal tea.
Please come for whatever amount of time works for you – any help is appreciated.
