2020 Restoration Compost Project

We have 40 tons of compost donated by Kompogas SLO! It needs to be spread quickly so that it can be disked under with the soil amendments. This is in preparation for the the cover crop (grasses and legumes) that we will be planting across the field to add nitrogen and biomass to the soil for next year's vegetable plants.

Saturday

November 14

TWO SHIFTS

9 am - 11:00 am

1 pm -4:00 pm

This compost and cover crop are so important to the health of our soil and that's what organic farming is about.

We feed the soil.

The soil feeds the plants.

The plants feed our community.

 

We need volunteers to come for 2 hours to help spread the compost on the field. You are welcome to stay longer if you wish.

Bring gloves, shovels, wheelbarrows, and shoes that can get stinky dirty.

Training opens in March 2021!

Did you know that during the 2020 Harvest Season we ran over 104 service events and that every event is run by volunteer leaders like you? For 2021, we want to triple the number of volunteer leaders on our roster. If you have come out to the farm, love what we do, you are 18 or older, and available to lead up to three times a month next Harvest season, sign-up here!

2021 Delivery

Program

Brainstorming for the 2021 Delivery Program will begin in January.

 

Ok team, we will have a veggie van next season and that means we get to be more creative with our delivery program. We’re thinking…wait for it…mobile farmer’s markets!!! 

 

If this excites you and you're committed to getting our food out of the field into the hands of our neighbors, sign-up here!

Community Partnerships

Are you a member of a church with a food pantry? Are you part of a service organization that works with the food insecure? Are you a 4-H club officer looking for an ag project for youth without access to land to farm?

We are open to building new partnerships in 2021 with established organizations to get our food out of the field and into the hands of people in our county experience food insecurity.

2020 Restoration

Projects

Harvests need large groups to process the produce, but Restoration Season projects typically call for small groups of 3-5 people and can be weather dependent. 

If you would like to be on the list of volunteers we contact for small group Restoration Season  events, we would love to see you out at the farm.

Volunteer Information

If this is your first time volunteering, you will be directed by the work-day leader to complete a volunteer registration packet prior to beginning work at the farm or orchard. Parents may add their children's names to their forms. You may review our liability waiver and terms of participation on-line before your event, but paper forms must be signed in person at the event..
