Explore the Farm Work Day

July 17, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

sliding scale

Join us at Powisset Farm in Dover, MA for a morning of volunteering on the farm with Ganei Beantown. Powisset is 17 farmed-acres that currently grows vegetables and herbs for 350 Community Supported Agriculture members as well as a seasonal farm-stand, pick your own flowers and herbs, and donates to five local hunger relief partners. We’ll tour the farmstead, complete with chickens and pigs, and then get our hands dirty in the fields with a variety of necessary tasks.

Bring a full water bottle, hat and sunscreen, close toed shoes, snacks, clothes you’re willing to get dirty, and gardening gloves (if you have them). If you’d like, you can bring a picnic lunch to stay after.

Powisset Farm is a property of The Trustees, and committed to growing community by connecting people to food and the land on which it grows.

Open to ages 10 and up.

$5-$15 sliding scale per person suggested donation. Please register in advance, as space is limited.

Carpooling can be coordinated if needed, contact Leora.
