This Week at The Farm 7.14.17

This Week at The Farm…

Four people carry bags and veggies to a collection of yellow baskets of harvested produce gathered next to the Farm truck

Alex, Jackie, Gianna and Brian packing up bags of produce for Mobile Market clientele.

At The Farm:

Four Camp Shriver visitors join an older worker to harvest cucumbers and gather them into a yellow bucket

Camp Shriver participants help Alex harvest pickling cucumbers.

We were excited to spend time with Camp Shriver – planting sunflowers at their base camp on Monday and then hosting 1 of 4 groups on Thursday to tour the Farm and pick cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.

A few young helpers at the Farm hold harvested veggies

The rain is helping our veggies grow – when the sun returns we know we will be running to keep up with the plants!

In the Community:

Due to stormy conditions, we created mixed (and bursting) $10 veggie bags for Mobile Market clientele instead of hosting a market.  Our partner, Alexandra then distributed them to patients both market locations. We will be at 1380 Main St next week from 3-4:30.

Hope Weaver, Class of 2018, updated our Brockton Community Garden Map. It now shows active sites, what is growing and which sites welcome volunteers.
