Thank you for your patience in awaiting news about our youth education plans for the summer. We miss the days when our gardens were filled with busy hands and curious minds. While we are eager to have families back to the farm, we have been cautious during the pandemic to keep our staff and our community safe. We are currently making plans in alignment with state and local guidelines preparing for the next phase of reopening. We are excited to offer a modified program for youth and adults this summer. Our traditional Summer Day Camp program will return in 2022.
There are many reasons behind this decision, with the health of our community at the top of the list. The other significant factor is a major construction project that will begin this summer. Important underground work, widening the road leading to the farm and a new parking area are slated to begin soon. As we adapt to these realities, we look forward to welcoming you back to the farm this summer for classes and sharing some exciting new outdoor learning spaces with you.
This year has allowed us to refocus our energy on many site development and restoration projects. We built a new greenhouse, fruit tree nursery and will soon finish the Greenhouse Garden Shop space and Tea Garden. The Farmhouse Kitchen renovation is in progress. The Schoolhouse and Farmhouse Kitchen Patio will soon be surrounded by an engaging educational space we named Sustainability Square. The Youth Garden is being transformed to include a greater variety of educational zones. Even the chickens got a new coop!
We are so grateful to our community for your love, encouragement and support over the past year, we could not have made it without you. We are so happy to offer new opportunities for students and families to visit the farm in a safe way this summer.
