Event 4 Veggielution
Thursday May 26, 2022 from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM
Veggielution is a six-acre organic community farm that depends on volunteers to cultivate and grow crops that generate more than 50,000 pounds of fresh and healthy food for the local working-class community. We start the day learning about the history of this community farm and taste some of the produce. Next, we get some fresh air and exercise with about 90 minutes of volunteering. All work will be older adult friendly (standing up pruning or in raised beds planting). After all of this productivity, we will have a social picnic lunch at the farm.
Location: Veggielution in Emma Prusch Farm Park
