The semester has been flying by, and there has been constant activity at the Farm with student volunteers, employees, and chicken caretakers here every day. Even as the days grow shorter, winter crops are starting to spring up and be harvested at the Farm. We have planted a lot of greens, broccoli, cauliflower, and beets this fall, and now we wait patiently for everything to be ready to harvest.
We have several exciting events before the end of the semester:
This Thursday November, 16th, we will be having the last Farm Stand of the semester. Farm Stand will be at the Smith Campus Center 4-5pm, and we will be selling persimmons, sapotes, sunchokes, arugula, and other produce, as well as Farm apparel!
Saturday November, 18th, we will be having a Beekeeping Workshop at the Farm from 1:30- 2:30pm. Come learn the basics of beekeeping from a local, professional beekeeper!
As always, we have Saturday volunteer hours every week from 10am- 12pm. We will not have volunteer hours the weekend of Thanksgiving, but we will be back the following Saturday, December 2nd.
I hope this finds you all well! I know the end of the semester can be a hectic time for everyone, so please feel free to come down to the Farm to take a break and get away from campus for a bit.
