FRESH Work Days (Spring 2010)

We have had several great work days with the FRESH New London Organization this spring helping build and install raised beds, plant seeds and bring the farm's greenhouse to life. Arthur Lerner, the head of FRESH has been very helpful in teaching us the ins and outs of community agriculture.

We have also been able to work with some of the local New London youth which has been a fun experience. We are so pleased to have the opportunity to help promote a more sustainable, self-sufficient food system in New London while also gaining valuable knowledge in the field of community-supported agriculture and food education. We are especially excited to continue work on the garden at the Winthrop Elementary School and continue developing the potential of the farm greenhouse to produce food and provide agricultural services (such as vermicomposting) throughout the year.
