IMG_20140618_121232134

Last week, the Amherst Survival Center had their first field trip to the Food For All Garden.  Cate and Sarah gave a short tour, explained the history and goals of the project and eagerly heard suggestions in how to continue to improve our work. The tour was followed by a delicious picnic with yummy sandwiches and cold drinks provided by Tracey from Amherst Survival Center.

2014-06-18 12.01.43Since this project is still very young in its first season, we every day we are trying new experiments, observing, and refining and so the cycle goes.  It was exciting to have a nice handful of Amherst Survival Center community members present at our event and celebrate how the plants are finally growing! Our mission is to provide not only food but also education and opportunity to our community, our volunteer hour2014-06-18 12.44.37s strive to offer a chance for someone who perhaps may not have a garden or just wants to spend some time working with plants.

 

Our tasks and work range from the ordinary farm tasks to planting apple trees, making herb spirals, and more! We are excited for this farm-garden fusion to deepen its roots in the community and want your help and ideas!  Join us!  Tuesdays & Thursdays 9-12 and Wednesdays 11-2.  All are welcome to come for any or all of the volunteer time, and if you’d like to schedule an alternate time food4allamherst@gmail.com.

Also, SAVE THE DATES  our summer workshop series starts SOON! See our EVENTS page!
