Work has begun in the Trinity Urban Farm (formerly the community garden) and volunteers are welcome Saturday mornings (typically from 9 a.m.-noon). The farm is located at E. 35th and Cedar in downtown Cleveland. Collard greens, one of the first winter crops, will be harvested this Saturday, April 14 and will be used on Sunday to feed A Place at the Table guests.
Volunteer tasks include cleaning up winter debris, getting the raised beds ready for planting, mulching, mowing and more. Volunteers are especially needed April 21 (from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.) to work with a group of young adults from CityYear.
If you can’t make it on Saturdays, contact farm leader Scott Blanchard to arrange other workdays. Volunteers are also welcome to support the farm in other ways: making phone calls, handling administrative tasks, take the mower blades to be sharpened and other duties not limited to the Saturday workdays. Conact Ginger Bitikofer or Scott Blanchard for details.
