Help us rescue our tomato, pepper, and eggplant crops! Some of our fields flooded due to sustained heavy rainfall including our tomato, eggplant, and pepper field. We need your help pruning, staking, weeding and mulching since the constantly wet conditions have prevented us from doing so. The forecast for weather this weekend suggests we will finally be able to get into the field. Time: 9 am to 1 pm, Saturday, July 13. We will post a message here and on Facebook by 8 a.m. if there is a need to cancel due to weather.
Parking is in the ICF tower field. To get there, follow the signs and arrows down the Intervale Road, about 1/3 mile on the right past the ICF pick up area. Pull into the field on the right past the big yellow road gate at the fork in the road. Parking areas will be marked with cones and flags. There are still some wet spots in the field, so please stay within the parking boundaries. In the event of wet conditions, we will direct people further down the road to drier parking.
Bring: Water bottles, snacks, sun protection, and bug protection. We recommend long sleeves, pants, and covered shoes to keep the mosquitoes off your skin and repellent if you like. We also recommend shoes that you don't mind getting muddy as the fields may still be a little wet.
We'll provide fresh drinking water and minimal snacks (mostly veggies).
RSVP to Becky (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are sure you are coming, but feel free to just show up! Thank you in advance for your assistance and support.
