The Growing Experience is having a volunteer work day at our urban farm this Saturday, 3/31 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. We have a lot of exciting projects going on, and are in need of volunteers to help us with spring gardening activities, ranging from planting fruit trees, sowing seeds and transplanting of spring/summer crops, as well as weeding and general maintenance. There will also be the opportunity to see our aquaponics demonstration project, with over 200 tilapia and edible aquatic crops in a sustainable closed system.
Come get your hands dirty, meet others from the community, and enjoy our urban farm in the city. This is a family-friendly event and kids of all ages are encouraged to join in. We will have hand tools, refreshments, and lunch from 12-1:00.
I look forward to seeing you this Saturday!
