Family Farm Day: The Cycle of Plants

July 8, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Around the Valley, fields have been planted and rows of green cotyledons—a plant’s first leaves—are popping out of the ground. Over at the newly-conserved Food Bank Farm, the Community Engagement Garden Plot is in full swing!

On Saturday, July 8th, from 10 am – Noon, families with kids ages 5 and older are invited to the farm to learn about the life cycle of common crops from seed to harvest through hands-on activities and exploration. During these mornings, families will also assist with light farm tasks, and learn about regenerative farming practices and The Food Bank’s commitment to community food security.

Participants are encouraged to wear clothes that can get dirty!

This program is free, but registration is required. To sign up, please email Philip Haberstroh at philliph@foodbankwma.org stating which day you would like to attend, the number of people you are signing up, the ages of children, and that you heard about this event from Kestrel Land Trust.
