3rd Annual Dance for the Plants Fundraiser

 

 

ACRES will be holding their 3rd annual Dance for the Plants fundraiser this February, 2019 (date TBD). The event is free and open to the public, and features live music from local bands. We will be serving refreshments available for purchase, and there will also be a raffle. Aside from raising funds, we hope that this event will help increase community awareness of our mission of producing food sustainably, as well as the educational opportunities we offer.

ACRES interns wrap up the 2018 season

 

 

ACRES is done with the Farmer's Market and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) for the season, and the farm is once again in transition. As the interns finish up their last weeks at the farm, the officers, members, and volunteers have sprung into action to pick up where the interns left off. Although the growing season may be over, there is still plenty of work to be done over the winter to prepare for next season.

The students are hard at work maintaining their compost and internshp programs, and also expanding with projects like building their own greenhouse at the farm. Want to learn more about how we keep busy during the off-season? Follow the link to our CSA and composting programs page, or watch this YouTube video about the ACRES greenhouse project.
