Farm work day
Vernon - posted Mar, 27 2013
VERNON - On Saturday, April 13, the Strong Family Farm will open its doors from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and invite volunteers to help with spring cleaning on the old farm and outbuildings before capital improvements can begin. A short orientation and farm tour will begin the day followed by a few hours of gratifying work. Volunteers are encouraged to bring rakes, brooms, weed-wackers, gloves, safety glasses and/or paint brushes. This is also an opportunity for people who have experience with agricultural antiques to help catalog and date the farm’s inventory. All volunteers are then invited to bring something to share for a pot luck lunch on the farm. For more information or to sign up to help, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call and leave a message at 860-874-9020; your message will be returned. Parking will be on Peterson Road, Center Road School or at Vernon Center Middle School.
