Dear Friends of the Farm,
With the semi-dry weather, we’ve been planting cover crops like crazy trying to get the farm put to bed. Already, we’ve harvested well over 8,000 lbs of food which has benefitted the Richmond Food Bank, Gilmore Park Community Meal, St. Alban’s Community Meal, Family Place meal, and more. We’d like to thank all the volunteers and staff who helped make this season so bountiful.
Please join us at some upcoming events to celebrate the year that has been.
Many of us are goin to this event tonight:
Screening of The Greenhorns
What happens when you follow young farmers around for 3 years? A film that not only inspires but facilitates action!
Date: Friday, Oct 14th (tonight!!)
Venue: Ralph Fisher Auditorium, Richmond Hospital
Cost: This is a free event
Parking is free on the gravel lot off Westminster Hwy after 6pm. We hope to see you there
World Food Day

Come by our booth!
