Welcoming Spring!

Spring is here and we are grateful to get growing!   We’ve been getting our hands dirty in both the greenhouse and the field. Spring is the time for PLANTING SEEDS. Ideas, intentions, goals, and these life-filled seeds that will nourish us and our communities in the summer and fall.

We are also excited for you to meet Hannah Smalls, our new Student Production Manager at Food For All.  With the leadership and assistance of last year’s manager, Jason DePecol, Hannah has begun seeding, planting, and lovingly caring for our crops this season.  Hannah is a UMass Sustainable Food & Farming major.

Michelle Nikfarjam, recent Sustainable Food & Farming graduate, will also be on board helping Hannah with our crop production as well as giving tours of the UMass Agricultural Learning Center. If you have a community group or class that you would like to bring by the garden, please contact us: food4allamherst@gmail.com.


Beyond the field and in the community, Emma Golden, UMass Sustainable Food & Farming student, is our Education Intern this season.  She is designing and organizing (free!) community workshops this summer and fall.  Workshops will take place at CHD’s Not Bread AloneAmherst Survival Center, and at our garden. STAY TUNED for more info about our summer workshops and workdays.
