Weed and Feed on Saturday, May 11

Please join us for our monthly “weed and feed” event on Saturday, May 11.  We’re losing the war against the weeds, and we need your help!  We also need help to plant lots and lots of tomatoes, finish installing our drip irrigation system in the high tunnel and possibly do some painting.

8:30 a.m. : Tour of the farm and orientation (we request a $5 donation for tour if you’re not staying to work)
9:30 a.m.:  Let the fun begin!
12:30 p.m.  Break for lunch (provided)
1:00 p.m.:  More productive fun!
3:30 p.m.: Put tools away and call it a day!

  • Please RSVP, particularly if you’re planning to eat lunch.  We want to make sure we have enough food! Also, while there is theoretically no end to the work, managing 5 volunteers is very different from managing 25 volunteers, and we want to make sure we are prepared.
  • Feel free to come for part or all of the day–come when you can, leave when you have to.  If you’ve never volunteered at Joshua Farm, we STRONGLY encourage you to come for a tour/orientation at 8:30 a.m.
  • We generally work rain or shine, so don’t let a drippy day put you off.

If you’re not available on weekends, we also have opportunities throughout the week most Mondays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Please let us know you’re coming and/or suggest another time if none of the options works for your schedule.  Thanks in advance for your help!
