Twice a month, we have Community Farm Days to maintain the farm. Members may harvest at their leisure, but farm days are also a great time to come and pitch-in on the work and grab produce at the same time.
Traditionally, community gardens have been a space where members rent one plot and take care only of their assigned space, leaving other plots to their respective owners, who may or may not have the time to keep up with them over an extended period. In order to more easily sustain the school community farm, the community works collaboratively to farm the whole piece of land as a group. Working side by side with neighbors to meet a common goal creates a true community.
This event is open to both members and volunteers alike. If you would like to become a member of the farm and enjoy open access and harvesting rights to the farm, you can apply here.
PEAS is 501c3 non-profit that builds community and care for our planet by providing education surrounding agriculture, nature, and sustainability through school day programs, after school programs, camps, and PEAS Community Farm & Urban Orchard at Cunningham Elementary. If you would like to become a member of the farm and enjoy open access and harvesting rights to the farm, you can apply here.
