Big Planting Day – Saturday, May 16, 2020

We planted seeds, seeds, and more seeds! This was one of the most important days of the planting season.

Planting Day 2020

2020 Kickoff – Saturday, April 18, 2020

We planted our first round of crops in the garden and there were plenty of other tasks that need to be completed, including mending the fence, installing new gates, and activating the sprinkler system.

Season Preparation – Saturday, March 28, 2020

Each year our season starts well before it’s time to plant! Our season preparation readies the garden by applying compost to the garden beds, spreading wood chips in walkways, and any other activity necessary to have the garden ready for planting. There were many activities with varying degrees of physical activity.


Rochester Farmers’ Market Grand Opening – May 4, 2019

This year’s Farmers’ Market started strong and we were there! While there wasn’t anything to sell, we had rocks for the kids to decorate. The decorated rocks have been placed in our garden and are there for you to find. If you painted a rock, come out to the garden and see if you can find yours!

The Big Dig – April 27, 2019

The 2019 season is off to a strong start with volunteers working tirelessly to put compost in all the planter beds, setup the children’s garden, spread mulch in the walkways, hang the deer fence, setup the Little Free Library, assemble the compost bins, and last but not least: plant the first crops! A huge thank you to everyone who came out to help!

Garden Preparation – March 23, 2019

On Saturday, March 23, we had around two dozen people come out to help prepare the beds and walkways for the 2019 season. There were over 50 man hours donated on a single day! We placed compost in the beds, spread wood chips in the walkways, removed old plant material, and built a new shed as a part of our preparation.
