Farm Events for 2017

Spring Celebration
Saturday, May 27th, Memorial Day Weekend

Kick off spring and join us at the farm for our Spring Celebration! We will be hosting a Tomato Seedling sale and breaking ground for our new Children’s Garden. Come see the farm, visit the animals, & have a picnic just days before the CSA starts.  We will also have eggs for sale, and possibly some early salad greens and overwintered carrots.

The Seedling Sale will include over 25 varieties of organic heirloom tomato seedlings for sale. Pick from Cherries, Paste, Slicers, Beefsteaks, Heirlooms and Hybrids!  These tomatoes are perfect for your backyard, for a pot on your porch, or in your garden. All seedlings will be ready to plant and our resident tomato experts will be excited to answer any care & growing questions.  Join us in the Hearty Roots parking lot from 10am-3pm.
This year are thrilled to be adding a Children’s Garden as an extension of our existing Pick Your Own Garden. Come help us make this a reality! Earlier volunteers can help put together our raised beds and volunteers later on can help us plant! We encourage children to be a part of the planting process so they can watch their plants grow all season long! 10am-1pm.

Garlic Harvest Work Party
Sunday, July 16
This year, our Garlic Harvest Party will be a morning of volunteering followed by a lunch hosted by the farmers of Hearty Roots. We will spend the morning, beginning at 9am, harvesting our garlic and laying it out on our greenhouse benches. Volunteers can help us by pulling garlic, collecting & boxing garlic, or laying it out in our greenhouse. Lunch will be comprised of our farmer’s favorite seasonal recipes. We ask our volunteers to work with us for at least 2 hours if they plan on joining us for lunch at 1pm, where we will feast and rest in the shade.

Fall Harvest Party
Saturday, October 7th

Our Harvest Party is a family friendly celebration of the growing season. We come together each fall to eat, drink, carve pumpkins, toss tomatoes, peel garlic, ride the hay wagon, visit the animals, listen to live music and catch up. Swing by if you’re local or make a weekend out of it if you’re coming from the city! Camping is available & there are lots of wonderful Pick-Your-Own apple farms nearby for your fall favorites.

Pick-Your-Own Garden Community Work Days
Saturdays 6/24, 7/22, 8/26, 9/23 

We want our CSA Member Pick Your Own Garden to be a space for beauty, community, education, and joy. So this season we are hosting four Community Garden Days, where we can come together as farmers & gardeners & eaters, to care for our garden. Tasks will vary based on the time of year but will include trellising, weeding, & pruning. Come work with us! Ask us growing questions and to spend time with your hands in the soil.  We hope this will be a wonderful opportunity for our members & our farmers to spend time together, creating connections with each other and with the land. Join us anytime during the hours of 10am – 1pm in the PYO.
