Veggies For All Volunteer Opportunity

September 27, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The warm late summer has meant that our onion crop is drying quickly, turning the hundreds of pounds of onions we pulled a couple weeks ago into high quality storage vegetables that will keep well into the winter. We’ve also been busy harvesting peppers, carrots, and beets. All in all, we’ve raised and distributed over 3,600 lbs. of food so far this season thanks to the help of dozens of volunteers, and we’re really just getting started.

Help us keep the harvest rolling by joining us next Tuesday 9/27 from 9 a.m. to noon for trimming our storage onions.

Workday is presumed on, rain or shine. For onion trimming we’ll be working in a greenhouse that’s likely to be very warm. Please dress appropriately and bring whatever you need to be comfortable in that day’s conditions. If you have any questions, please call 207-322-1366 or e-mail kflack@mainefarmlandtrust.org.

Directions: head south from Unity on Albion Rd. about five miles until you see Waning Rd. on your left. Turn onto Waning Rd. then make your first (immediate) right into Grady Place. Follow the driveway toward and through the apple trees. You’ll see large greenhouses on your left. We’ll be in the one in the center. If you’re using a GPS, the address is 1059 Albion Rd.

 Thanks so much for your support. Hope to see you soon!
