We have been very fortunate over the past three years to host the Access TCA Volunteer Day here at Community Harvest Project. They are a large exhibit and event marketing company based right here in the Blackstone Valley in Whitinsville. This team of volunteers always comes out with great spirit and energy to help their community. Their creative approach and considerable amount of effort in planning for the day and even doing advance work to prepare is greatly appreciated. This year they were able to help us with a list of projects around the farm that we would not otherwise be able to complete.
They spent their day on the farm trellising cucumbers, replanting eggplant that was washed out by flooding, twining tomatoes, weeding, and cleaning out the small greenhouse. Because of them the thousands of volunteers that visit our North Grafton farms will have access to a picnic grove of new and newly repaired and painted tables. They also helped us with some major repairs on the barn deck, making it safer for all of our visitors. Their gift and talent of the addition of passive education signs will come to life around the farm in the coming months. This project would not have been possible without their expertise and the design execution of Eric Anderson. In visiting the barn you may notice that we have new graphics in the back of the great room and on the hallway walls. With innovative techniques they were able to print life size photos on plastic and fabric to help us provide a very inviting environment for our guests.
We would like to applaud and thank Access TCA for their amazing gift of time, resources and volunteer labor. Their efforts to make us shine are greatly appreciated. This team was able to not only help us farm for the day but also used their talents to advance our mission by donating services that we would not be able to fit into our budget. A special thanks goes out to Jamie Levine for her coordination of these efforts, Dean Cerrati and Jess Thibault for making the day go smoothly, Phil Oikle and his band of magicians for their amazing craftsmanship and the rest of the Access TCA Team for their support and energy during their visit to our farm. We really appreciate your support of our efforts and of our community.
