Visit the Soil Born Farms - May 11th



Celebrate spring in the garden with hands-on projects for the whole family!

Join us for a Family Day at Soil Born Farms Urban Agriculture & Education Project. Soil Born Farms provides hands-on learning experiences to visitors of all ages.

At this special Harvard-sponsored event, youth and sdults will build small planter boxes to take home, learn how to build healthy soil, sow seeds and transplant plants. We will enjoy a fresh snack from the farm with herbal tea, followed by a simple lunch that will be prepared at the farmhouse kitchen.

Our visit begins at 9.30am, with Alyssa Kassner, and ends at 11.30am. Please plan to arrive no later than 9.15am.



Cost for the activity and lunch is $23.00 per person (ages 5 and up). The event fee includes materials, a snack and beverage, plus lunch. BUY TICKETS today!

Their Goals

Local Organic Food Production

Create, manage and support urban organic farms and gardens that are accessible to the public,  permanently protected for future generations, and that practice and promote responsible land stewardship.
