Event description

Description

Join us for a volunteer day at Hendrick Farm! This is your chance to find yourself in a beautiful setting, get a little (or a lot of) dirt under those fingernails, and be involved with your local organic farm. We will be working with two of our most beloved root crops: beets and onions. We grow a variety of speciality onions known for storability and flavour. We will transplant the onions from the greenhouse to the field. Afterward we will be moving into beets, where we will learn the basics of thinning and caring for the crop in its early stages. You'll even get to take home your own harvest of delicious beet sprouts!

WHAT TO BRING

  • You’re going to get dirty, so don’t wear anything you would be scared to stain!

  • Boots or work boots are an asset

  • Gardening gloves

  • A hat and sunscreen (that sun can get hot!)

  • Water bottle

WHERE TO MEET

You can park in the gravel parking lot in front of the old barn at 193 chemin Ladyfield. We ask that you then follow the path to the right of the barn (running between the farm and the barn) and meet the other volunteers and farm team at the harvest station.



NOTE: In order to ensure an authentic experience for everyone, we ask that children under the age of 12 be accompanied by an adult (both must register).
