We are in the middle of our busiest season around the farm – harvest season! Our farm team and volunteers have been harvesting vegetables everyday including eggplant, tomatoes, okra, tomatillos and zucchini. Carrots and beets were planted just last week and our second planting of summer squash and zucchini has germinated and will be ready for harvest in late August and into September.
To date, our team has harvested over 36,316 pounds of vegetables; that is over 166,565 individual servings going to neighbors in our community currently experiencing hunger. And there are still thousands of pounds of produce in the fields to harvest. If you are interested in volunteering with us this summer – we would love to have you! We are now holding early shifts from 7am to 9am on Tuesdays and Thursdays in addition to our 9am-12pm shifts Monday-Saturday. We are also now accepting group volunteer requests (25 people or less) for our orchard schedule starting August 28 through October 9th. For more information and to signup, click here.
