*Starting in the 2018 season*:
This season, we will be giving public tours every 3rd Saturday of the month at 9:30 am sharp. The tour will be 45 minutes long, and will take place rain or shine, so dress for the outdoors! Walk-ins welcome; no need to schedule with us. We are asking for a donation of $5, or pay-what-you-can, per person. All proceeds from public tours will be going to organizations involved with food and environmental justice.
Dates for public tours for the 2018 season are:
May 19, June 16, July 21, August 18, September 15 and October 20.
Come to one, a few, or all of them. Every month and season the farm looks different! We hope you can join us and to learn more about how your food is grown on our farm!
