work schedules

School’s back in session, and with it comes opportunities for selfless volunteer labouring!

See our EVENTS page for upcoming EVENTS, who would’ve thought!

Specifically, each Wednesday and Sunday in the month of September, we’ll be hosting work parties at the farm. We’ll get the more routine farm work out of the way (harvesting, mulching, filling/turning the compost) then try to tackle a specific project each day. For example, we might build small coldframes to scatter in some nice warm spots around campus, we might put together some more compost bins, we might plant our garlic, who knows! This Sunday, we finish off our $5 cob bench, then on Wednesday we’ll set up our new coldframe.

We’ll keep you informed via this website and email, but feel free to drop in, any Wednesday at 5PM and Sunday at 2PM.

The tomatoes, cukes, beans, beets, basil and spinach are receiving rave reviews from the lucky students munching in meal hall. Potatoes and carrots and broccoli (knock on wood) are on the way!
