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!

Farm delivery! 👩🏻‍🌾 You may see our farm coordinator biking around Wolfville this summer and fall with a trailer full of produce. Yesterday it was used to transport our seedlings 🌱 from the K.C. Irving Center greenhouse down to the farm. See if you can spot our garden coordinator biking delicious veggie up to Wheelock Dining Hall this fall 🍂 🚴🏻‍♀️
We’ve been lucky with two good days of weather in a row. Fingers crossed for another one tomorrow! Today we rotated our compost piles and set up two new compost bins. These were graciously donated to the farm by Environmental Sustainability students Chelsey and Daniella! The soil is just dry enough to start planting out some of our seedlings. Today we transplanted swiss chard, cabbage, and kale! 🥬
Happy Sunday! It looks like we have some sunshine this coming week 🌤. This means our cabbage, kale and swiss chard will finally be transplanted into the garden! 🥬
