Worms, eggplants, and new faces

Hi all!

As the first couple weeks of the semester have gone by it seems everyone is settling into their schedules, and we are happy to see many new and eager students making the Farm a part of their weekly routine. Everyday the Farm has been welcoming excited volunteers into its gates to feed the chickens, make compost, plant food and flowers, and explore the nooks and crannies of our food forest.

The first workshop of the semester is this week as well! Friday 9/25 at 4:00pm come and learn how worms can make highly fertile compost from our food scrap waste through the practice of Vermicomposting. We will be making a larger worm bin for the Farm as well as some “dorm-sized” worm bins to take home. We will be meeting on the East side of the Farm.

Additionally cooking workshops resume this Thursday at 4:30pm taught by the wonderful Emily Charlotte Hill. We will be making a variety of eggplant dips using ingredients from the Farm.
