LexFarm thanks Dennis Busa for providing and preparing a special space at Busa Farm for us to grow together this summer.
On Thursday, June 6, from 1 to 3 p.m., those involved we'll be planting LexFarm's new children's farm plot at Busa Farm, 52 Lowell St, Lexington, next to the Arlington Reservoir.
Kids of all ages are invited to help. There are age appropriate jobs for everyone.
Dress for a mess because this is a hands-on afternoon of actual planting. With help from Farmer Charlie, we will pick over the soil for stones to be removed, mark off rows and plant sunflower seeds, transplant veggie seedlings and start some other vegetables from seed ... by the end of the summer, we'll be able to make some great soup.
