How It Works
Participants work a weekly or biweekly shift in our collective garden plot (a ½ acre) at BeetBox Farm. At each shift we plant, weed, and harvest crops under the direction of a coordinator. We also work on shared projects with the horticulture operation at the farm. There is also the option to join the Special Projects team for more ad hoc projects.
Our garden plot is planned using the BeetBox CSA crop planning tool thereby giving us each a diversity of seasonal vegetables, fruits and herbs. Our garden relies on key farming infrastructure such as irrigation systems, a greenhouse for seedlings, and careful cover cropping and bed amending.
This program’s strength lies in having participants at the plot weeding, watering, harvesting and taking care of our plants 6 days a week. By sharing the work and costs we can grow an enormous amount of delicious, organic food together, and we have fun doing it!
