Welcome back to Emerson Farm!

Our next adult volunteer day will be Friday, August 24 from 1 to 3 PM.  Come on out and learn a little about gardening while we get this year's fall garden in order.

Over the summer, the hens and their rooster settled in very nicely.  Two of our hens are now brooding on 11 eggs.  Thanks to some help from summer camp participants and East Chapel Hill High volunteer Skyler, we now have a chicken tractor to help with bed prep for spring planting.

While our weekly student visitors (3rd grade and 7th grade) will not start coming out to the farm until September 10, sixth grade will come on Tuesday and Thursday of the first week of school to prep beds and plant brussels sprouts. 

Pictures coming soon!
