About the Event
Help us transition our field from its wild shmita* state into vegetable production. After releasing human control over the field for a full year, it’s time to remove the dense, tall plants and make space for vegetables. Feel like a forensic farmer as you find evidence of which animals and plants moved into the field when humans moved out. We'll pull plants by hand, move plant matter to a compost pile, weed with hula hoes, and spread woodchips.
The section of the field that we will be preparing on this volunteer day is the parcel that we grow specifically for donation to Bounty and Soul!
All are welcome. This includes families, folks of diverse abilities, and any religious background. There will be tasks for all ages and abilities.
Please come for whatever amount of time works for you – any help is appreciated.
*shmita = the agricultural and economic year of release in ancestral Jewish wisdom
