Farm Volunteer Day at Easter Egg Acres

  • Jul 14, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Remember that hail storm on the plains last week? It was a loud, fast moving storm of big hail. If you've ever been in a big hail storm, you've seen the damage it can do.

Join us at Easter Egg Acres to help clean up the hail damage! Not only will we provide some needed hands to this farming couple, but we'll also get a tour of this goat farm. Meet the goats and chickens, ask questions about farming and even take home some ready-for-the-garden composted manure!

We'll leave Colorado Springs at 11AM and be home by 5PM. Wear sturdy shoes, a hat and clothes for being out in the sun. Bring sunscreen, water and a snack and don't forget your camera. Those goats are cute!

    Great organizing Bonnie! I'm in, but will need a ride again. I'll check with Sagar but if anyone is going and can swing by and pick me up in Manitou, that would make my participation possible!

      Yes, I can ~ I'll be at the Baker House at 11:00 ( I have the address as 819 Manitou Ave). That will get us to the farm by noon. I drive a brown Buick Enclave. Feel free to email me at [masked] if you want my contact #. See you tomorrow at 11:00 :) Jennifer

    Can I bring my 5 yr old along? If I do my husband will also join us, so btwn the 2 of us she'd be watched over. Not sure what the clean up entails - heavy machinery?

      That would be fine. It's a long day, especially for kids.

      Clean up is mostly rakes, brush control and hail damage removal. Some mowing and hauling. Might let Bonnie tractor........ Our snow burm needs pushed up. We have had so many great volunteer days its created more work because so much got done. Thanks all!

    I think I can make it, but any chance someone can come by Manitou and pick me up? The buses do not run on Sunday... Sagar, are you going?
