An UHL Urban Farming Day at the Food Project

  • Mar 27, 2010 · 9:30 AM

An Urban Homesteaders' League Urban Farming Day at the Food Project

Saturday, March 27
9:30-12:30pm
Intersection of West Cottage Street and Brook Avenue, in Dorchester, MA Limit 25 people.
Rain or shine.

Learn by doing! Help jump start the season by turning in cover crop, prepping beds, and spreading compost on one of the Food Project's Urban Farm Sites. We'll also be trimming raspberry bushes and mulching asparagus. Come if you'd like to work outside and gain a bit of first hand experience with early season garden prep.

We'll start with a brief introduction to The Food Project and our programs at 9:30am. We'll work together till noon. We'll wrap up from 12pm-12:30 with a Q&A session about growing, soil, and other related topics with Urban Grower, Jess Liborio.

Bring clothes and shoes you can get dirty, a water bottle, and if you want them, work gloves. We'll be working an 1.6 acre lot, which supplies two neighborhood Farmers Markets and local hunger relief organizations.

More info can be found at www.thefoodproject.org. Volunteers are welcome any Saturday 9:30am-12:30pm, April 10 - June 12.

    This was a great way to spend a beautiful Saturday morning outside. I plan to volunteer at the Food Project on future Saturday mornings throughout spring.
