Sweetwater Organic Community Farm is just that– an organic farm that is supported by this community. It is not “Sweetwater’s farm,” it is truly OUR community farm. This community supports and adds to the farm through active volunteerism, contributing to the CSA program, and supporting local farmers and artisans at the Sunday Market– keeping local alive. We are thankful to be here and excited for the season ahead with all of you.
We are now on our regular volunteer schedule five days a week! Whether you are eager to get outside, learn more about farming, or just help out–we’d be happy to have you. We meet at 8am in the barn on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. On Thursday and Sunday we meet at 7:30am. For more information, please check out our volunteer page or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to volunteer and are looking for an added way you can help the farm, check to see if your employer participates in an Employee Match or Volunteer Grant program for volunteer hours. Many companies provide grant funding to non-profits where their employees volunteer on a regular basis. Not only does your time help our daily operations in the fields, the extra funding allows us to expand our educational and outreach programs.
The market is almost here! Next Sunday, October 19th will be the Grand Opening of the Sunday Farmer’s Market. We’ll have live music by Judy Tampa with Bunko Squad and Ronnie Elliot from 12:30-2:30. Then a free farm tour with founder, Rick Martinez at 1pm. Of course, your favorite vendors from last season will be there, too, along with a few new faces. Remember to join us for morning yoga at 11:00am on the porch of the education center.
We still have some CSA shares available for this season. Payment plans are only available for CSA shares until October 31st!
See you at the Farm!
