Please review these program and event changes in response to COVID-19
MOBILE MARKET PROGRAM: Purchase our fresh produce in person and online
In addition to making fresh produce available at our weekly Mobile Market stops, we now offer convenient online ordering with curbside pickup. Order our pay-as-you-go Veggie Bags online or join our Winter CSA Farm Share Program and receive produce every two weeks through March 2021. See complete details on our Mobile Market page.
SCHOOL GARDEN PROGRAM
In summer 2020, our school gardens at the Lincoln Elementary School, Stoklosa Middle School, and STEM Academy were designated as additional food production sites to meet the growing demand for fresh food in Lowell. Food grown on these sites was distributed to school families and support staff on a weekly basis. We will provide updates on our School Garden Program curriculum once plans for the new school year are in place.
Our Community Gardens are currently dormant for the winter season and will reopen in spring 2021 with COVID-19 safety protocols in place. We will communicate with our Community Gardeners on how to access their gardens in a safe, productive way.
For the safety of our community, our 2021 Garden Leadership Institute (GLI) will take place virtually on ZOOM in February 2021. Registration is now open for our GLI Workshops Series! We will post updates on our Gardener Training Program (GTP) which will take place in spring 2021.
FARM TO TABLE COOKING CLASSES
For the safety of our community, our Farm to Table Cooking Classes will take place virtually starting in October 2020.
YOUTH FOOD JUSTICE PROGRAMS
For the safety of our community, our J-Squad Programming and Summer Farm Field Trips will not take place this year. We look forward to bringing youth back to the farm in summer 2021 for dynamic, hands-on learning on our beautiful urban growing spaces.
