Join us to learn more about our Grand Island farm and hang out with the horses (Bonnie & Patty). At this peak-of-the-summer work party the focus will be on transplanting!!  There will also be other projects like moving the pasture fences, setting up irrigation and weeding.

You are welcome to bring family and friends- there will be things to do for folks of all ages and abilities. Kids are welcome to come help work or just hang out. We’ll provide snacks and drinks. You’ll get to sample all sorts of tasty treats from the garden. Please bring your favorite gardening tools and dress for the weather. No dogs please.

To celebrate all our hard work we’ll have a potluck afterward – bring something to share and/or put on the BBQ.

Reply to let us know you’re coming if you can. Any Questions email Laura at Hope to see you there!
