Welcoming 2017!

Today was an exciting day! Our new crew visited the garden, prepared it to begin FILLING it with plants that will grow to nourishing food to be donated to CHD’s Not Bread Alone & Amherst Survival Center for the fourth season!

This year, Grace McKay (left) will be our Student Production Manager and Kate Brodsky (right) will be our Student Production & Education Assistant. See the garlic behind them?!

IMG_4489.JPGWhile it is always hard to say goodbye to our AWESOME production managers, it is a great opportunity to welcome  new SFF students into these leadership roles to learn how to grow food organically AND make an impact to address hunger in our community.  It seems like just yesterday we were planting the garlic and putting the garden to bed.

The raspberry plants have soft fuzzy leaves, weeds are starting to grow taller each day and we are bright-eyed & ready for the season ahead. STAY TUNED to hear about community workdays & summer events!
