  • There’s no better way to stay warm in winter than spending time with good company doing good work!

    Help restore and shape the landscape of 21 Acres and join staff member Nick Jennisonat our weekly Saturday work parties. Tasks include wetlands restoration, plant propagation, garden and food forest maintenance, compost making, food harvesting, data tracking, and much more. There’s always lots to do and lots to learn!

    Work parties occur every Saturday. This Saturday will have 2 sessions, 10am and 12:30pm, with a lunch break at Noon.

    We’ll be starting the terracing on the West side the building next to the three compost bins in order to make room for 3 new compost bins and a sawdust bin to complete our collection of composting storage areas. It will be a day of digging, leveling, moving gravel, and building small retaining walls. Should be fun!

    Whatever you choose, the 21 Acres Market will be open 11 am -4 pm for you to grab lunch from the deli or pick up some produce and fresh bread on your way out.  Plus, as a volunteer, you get a 10% discount!

    Most days will be filled with some sort of physical activity and take place outdoors, rain or shine, so bring weather appropriate clothing and shoes. Check out the schedule to see what’s happening this coming Saturday!
