Breaking Ground-Come Join Us!

After a delicious lunch yesterday at the Amherst Survival Center, we can’t wait to load them up with fresh organic food for their daily lunches and food distribution.

Want to get your hands dirty and have some fun in the sun with us?  Our VOLUNTEER HOURS are Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-12 and Wednesdays 11-2.  We’ll be planting lots of sweet baby plants next week so come and join the fun! Please contact Cate or Sarah with any questions: food4allamherst@gmail.com.  STAY TUNED for some fun upcoming events and workshops.
