The soil arrives, the fun begins. Want to help?

For our first post, we’d like to share some images of our site, where the soil has just started to arrive this morning!


From Monday to Saturday next week (March 21-26) we will be moving the soil and forming the planting rows.

We need lots of help!  If you would like to join us, take a look at our Volunteer Flyer.   You bring the enthusiasm (and the muscles), we’ll bring the shovels and rakes.   Please feel free to pass the flyer along or post it for people or groups you think might be interested.

If you live or work within walking or biking distance you are welcome to become one of our neighborhood urban farmers and plant your own vegetables!

If you have questions or would like to become an Urban Farmer, please write to Camilla at

Thanks and Happy Growing!
