Days In The Dirt 2017 says
Beginning the first Sunday of June, Ekar Farm will be open for drop-in volunteers to get their hands dirty and connect with their food! Come by the farm any time on a Sunday from 9 a.m. til 12 p.m. to lend a helping hand in growing food for the hungry. A delicious complimentary bagel breakfast donated by Moe's Bagel Grant Street will be available for volunteers on a first come, first serve basis!

If you have a big group of people you’d like to bring on a Sunday, let us know in advance by signing up online here:

NEW! Future Farmers: Every Sunday, 10 a.m.
During our Days in the Dirt, our Educator will provide 30 minutes of FREE fun, family farm activities starting at 10 am for kids ages 4-10!

Sunday, June 4th - Roots! Dig into the soil to discover the wonders of worms, compost, and how roots of plants depend on dirt.

Sunday, June 11th - Stems & Leaves! Explore how stems and leaves take in water and sun to help plants grow.

Sunday, June 18th - Flowers & Bees! Go beyond the beauty of flowers and honey by learning how pollination grows the foods we love.
