It is hard to remember that just a week ago we hadn’t seen the sun in days and the heat of summer seemed like nothing but wishful thinking. As the sun returned last week, we were happy to receive help from members of our community including Paul Daponte, Father Pinto, Lyn Feeney, Joe Miller, and Father Steve who helped us plant carrots and radishes, and ready the fields for over 400 tomato seedlings.
I have two students helping me grow the farm this summer, Brian Switzer and Michelle Kozminski. With the help of their constant, hard work and the energetic visits of our volunteers we saw the farm grow from 7 to 16 rows last week! Thank you to all of our busy bees!
As we plant, we also continue to harvest and share our bounty with member of our community at Father Bill’s & MainSpring, The Old Colony YMCA, and My Brother’s Keeper.
Paul Ricci, The Associate Director of Grounds, and many members of his team have supported The Farm from Day 1. We are happy to have them as our neighbors at The Clock Farm.
From The Field at The Farm to The Table. We are already looking forward to our next harvest and delivery.
