We are currently seeking volunteers on this day to assist with planting a variety of squash and root vegetables on the farm that will be eventually donated to Our Place Society as part of our “field to plate” initiative for those in need in the Greater Victoria area.

Key activities include digging, planting seeds, spreading soil, putting a protective barrier around the seeds, and placing drip tape on each row for irrigation.

While we have some hand tools available for sharing, please feel free to bring your own spades or shovels for use during the work party.

On or before Tuesday May 24, 2016, please contact farmlandstrust@gmail.com if you are interested in joining us.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided! Let us know if you have any dietary restrictions, food allergies or sensitivities.

Note. please wear sturdy shoes or boots and bring your own gloves. Thanks! 

Directions to Newman Farm: Feel free to meet us and park near the Newman Farm access gate on Central Saanich Road, 1/2 km north of Mount Newton Cross Road – look for our signs.
