About the event
There is SO much to be done at the MiniFarm in the fall - cutting back dead plants, disassembling the flower field, digging dahlia tubers, washing & dividing dahlia tubers, planting spring bulbs (we have over 9000 tulip bulbs coming!), collecting leaves to mulch the flower field, and more. We warmly welcome a hand from anyone who would like to get involved and get a little dirty! This is a great chance to see how we do things here and get your questions answered!
We hope to be planting all our tulip bulbs today (assuming they've all arrived by then and the weather is good). This involves digging three big trenches, laying all the bulbs out in the trenches (like eggs in a carton!), then covering the trenches back up with a load of compost and the dirt we removed at the beginning. Space in each of the time slots will be limited, as we can only fit a few people in each trench at a time. Volunteers will be gifted a bag of some of our favorite giant tulip bulbs to plant in their own yard!
Please RSVP if you plan on attending so that we can plan that day's tasks accordingly. Likewise, if you RSVP and are unable to come, please let us know in advance. We ask that you show up as close to the start time for your shift as possible so that we can organize our volunteers accordingly.
Please note: These events are for adults and capable/willing older children only. Please leave small children and pets at home.
Thank you SO much for your willingness to lend us a hand in such a busy time!
