The months after Labor Day are very busy at the farm. We are on the last third of our summer pick-ups and we are planning for winter shares. We are plowing fields after crop production has finished and we are harvesting root vegetables to dry/cure and store in our coolers. We are part of the trail for the annual Harvest Fun Run, we have wagon rides to harvest pumpkins, and we plan for our annual meeting of the co-op.
Fall is a hopping time for us!
- On Saturday, September 17 (rain date September 18), City Market Co-op will be hosting a Crop Mob for the benefit of the farm. Squashes and root vegetable harvesting is on tap! You can sign up on the City Market web site here. City Market members can earn worker hours.
- On Saturday, October 1 ICF will be providing wagon rides to the fields so families can select their pumpkins. Families anticipate this event every year! Watch for the exact times but mark your calendar. Rain date will be Sunday, October 2.
- On Sunday, October 9, City Market and the Sustainability Academy will host their 5th Annual Harvest Run/Walk for Sustainability at the Intervale. You can sign up for the event here.
- The annual meeting of the Intervale Community Farm Co-op will be Saturday, November 5. Details on the times, location, and our annual pot luck dinner will be forthcoming.
We hope you will participate in these activities and take advantage of fall days in Vermont in the Intervale.
