Cherrywood Neighborhood Farm Spring Season Starts Soon

Cherrywood Urban Patchwork Farm members are getting ready for a new season growing healthy, fresh vegetables right here in the neighborhood, and we’re looking for people interested in taking part in our farm community.

The first spring distribution of homegrown veggies and eggs is scheduled for Saturday, March 1, starting 9:00 AM at In.gredients, 2610 Manor Rd.

We’re neighbors growing food for each other, which means plenty of opportunity for planting, digging, learning and socializing. We do have a few openings available, with several ways to participate — work-share, payment-only, or half and half.

Full-subscription memberships are $280 for the 19-week season. Partial work-share memberships are $140. Full work-share people commit to contributing 4 – 5 hours per week, while partial work-share members contribute about half of that, along with the fee.

We’ll announce the new season and welcome inquiries at the quarterly Cherrywood Neighborhood Association meeting this Wednesday, February 19, if you want to come and find out more. You can also check, or contact Terry Dyke directly.

I live in the old yellow house on Robinson with Marilyn Fenn, my wonderful and talented wife. A Cherrywood citizen since 2002, I've enjoyed neighborhood life, helping organize Film Night, instigating our neighborhood urban farm, and more recently, joining the CNA Steering Committee. I'm interested in energy and climate issues, and local resilience as a response to them. I also write about them on my blog.
