Tri Cycle Farms - Building Community through Soil

Saturday, October 28th, 2017 from 10:00am to 1:30pm (CT)

About

Tri Cycle Farms is an urban farm park and food recovery center in the heart of Fayetteville.  Our mission is to grow community through soil as we steward food awareness, education and empowerment. 

Join us during Make a Difference Day, October 28th from 10 am to 1:30 pm.  Help us harvest and tend to the gardens, grounds, and chickens.  We will split into teams tackling seasonal projects and new opportunities for growth and outreach.

Because we are a working farm, there are always volunteer opportunities at Tri Cycle Farms throughout the year.  Recurring opportunities can be found here on GivePulse, and groups can schedule volunteer workdays by emailing volunteer@tricyclefarms.org. 

Dress appropriately for the weather (layers) and for working in the farm (boots or at least closed-toe shoes, preferably water proof), and bring gloves, water, and a snack. 

As we get closer to the date, we will be able to discuss specific projects for this event.  We are a working farm and nonprofit, and some projects depend on the frost while others upon contributions and partnerships leading up to this event.  Check this description for updates or email volunteer@tricyclefarms.org.

Update:  We will have project leaders on site to lead small teams on multiple projects simultaneously.  When one project is completed, teams will move on to another.  Projects we are planning for Make a Difference Day include:
  • Harvesting seeds (light)
  • Pulling & composting celosia plants (medium)
  • Late harvest (medium)
  • Weeding gardens (medium)
  • "Strawing in" beds (medium)
  • Seasonal planting (medium)
  • Spreading mulch (medium)
  • Assisting chicken run construction (medium-heavy)
  • Digging drainage patterns (medium-heavy)
  • Removing invasive plants (heavy)
