The Return of Family Days, Farm Tours, and more!

I'm very pleased to say that, after a break for the crazily busy summer season, Green String Farm is once again offering community events. We have a really fantastic bunch of interns who run all of these events. If you want to learn more about the farm and maybe get your hands dirty, this is for you!

Farm Tours

This Saturday, and the first Saturday of each month, our own farm interns will lead a 90-minute walking tour of Green String. Each tour will focus on a particular theme, so repeat visitors can see and learn something new each time they come. Examples of tour themes:
  • orchards
  • water use
  • vegetable varieties
  • integrating animals
  • sustainability
Tours leave from the farm store at noon, so make sure you get there on time. Wear good walking shoes, bring water, and be ready for a bit of a hike! We suggest a donation of $5 per person. RSVP:

Family Day

The third Saturday of each month, we'll have fun activities set up for children and their parents. Arts & crafts projects and games will focus on basic concepts of natural food and farming, like compost, animals, and water. Come to the farm store at 2 to meet us for an hour of fun, and stay for some farm fresh snacks after. Suggested donation $2 per person. RSVP:

Community Workday

Every Thursday from 9am to noon, join us for a morning of light labor. Volunteers help us harvest, control weeds, and work closely with interns. There's lots of time for talking, so it's a perfect opportunity for home gardeners who want to ask questions about how we farm. It's also great for people who, like us, find dirt very therapeutic. We'll send you home with a free bag of produce as thanks. There's no need to RSVP, just meet us at the farm store at 9am.
