HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The work we do at Lindentree Farm every summer/fall is used to help provide food to the people we serve. By helping us grow the vegetables and maintain the farm, you help us provide food to some of the 25,000 people we feed each year.

DESCRIPTION

If you like working outside in nature, then this is the opportunity for you! Every Wednesday (May - November), we are out at our Field of Greens farm in Lincoln, MA weeding, harvesting and washing vegetables such as kale, collard greens, carrots, beets and cabbage for donation. If you've ever wondered how to pull a carrot out of the ground, this is a great opportunity to learn and, at the same time, provide healthy food for people who might not be able to afford it otherwise!


ITEMS NEEDED

A ride to the farm in Lincoln, MA (all other gardening materials are available for use at the farm)
