    NEW THIS YEAR! We are offering work days on the Blandford Farm for those volunteers that are wanting to get their veggies on and hands dirty. Currently, we will offer these days once a month however there is the potential to add more days as the season becomes busier.  Education is always a major focus of the day as volunteers learn to identify, harvest, and manage produce, herbs, and sometimes, farm livestock. Volunteers will gain knowledge on how those plants, livestock, and their volunteer efforts directly impact their surrounding environment.
