Event description

Description

Come get your hands dirty, learn about sustainable agriculture, and help grow vegetables for neighbors who have a hard time getting access to affordablem nutritious food! You'll weed, hoe, plant, sometimes even harvest at Arcadia Farm at Woodlawn -- acres that once belonged to George Washington himself! Depending on the season and the weather, your morning may include collecting eggs and feeding the chickens, learning to use a scuffle hoe, spreading compost and wood chips, painting signs, repairing fences or building simple structures. Long sleeves and pants are recommended; wear closed-toe shoes, a sun hat, and bring a refillable water bottle. There are bees on the property busily pollinating our plants, and insects and thorns. And dirt. But it's fun so you should totally come. This is a great way to get introduced to Arcadia's work and staff, and discover other ways your can help achieve our mission of creating a more equitable, sustainable and delicious food system!
