Farm Events

Beginning this week, Green String is putting on regular educational programs open to the public.


Thursdays, 9am to noon
Meet at the Green String Farm Store

If you’re interested in natural process farming and want to learn more, we invite you to join us on Thursday mornings for community workdays. Green String Farm interns will lead activities and discuss principles of natural farming in a casual setting. Activities may include: pruning, soil preparation, harvesting, competition control, animal care, compost, and much more.

Please come prepared to work! We’ll provide tools, but make sure you have comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty and good, sturdy work shoes. Mudboots and gloves are recommended.

Family Day

Saturday, March 28
Activities: 10:30am to noon
Lunch: noon to 1pm

Meet at the Green String Farm Store

Learn about natural farming from the ground up!

Interns at Green String Farm are going to give brief, fun, hands-on lessons about how we farm. We invite you to join us for our very first Family Day on March 28, when we’ll get our hands dirty and talk about the most important part of our farm -- soil! If you’d like to join us for lunch afterwards we’ll bring homemade bread and we can dig into some fresh veggies from the farm stand.

Please wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty -- mudboots would be great! The activities will be geared towards 6- to 11 year-olds, but we can provide alternate activities for younger children. Parents, though we’re excited to teach your kids, we’re not prepared to supervise them entirely, so you’ll be asked to stay with us throughout the activities (and you might learn something too).

Suggested donation for lunch: $2 per person

Please RSVP to or sign up at the farm store.
