Volunteer at Urban Farm in Long Island City, Queens
Sunday, March 10, 2013

Look for balloons and people near the corner of Skillman Avenue and Pearson Place
Let's welcome springtime by helping to prepare Smiling Hogshead Ranch for the growing season!
The day's activities will include: clean up, making soil blocks and prepping beds for planting, turning compost, installing a horseshoe pit, sinking posts for espaliered fruit trees, and enjoying each other's company on one of NYC's most innovative urban farms.
Bring work gloves and any other safety gear you like to wear for gardening. Smiling Hogshead Ranch has tools and materials for the rest, and we're going to build a rocket stove under a rain shelter in case the weather is not the best.
Beware: there is no rain date! If you want to be a lead volunteer for any of the day's activities, come to the ranch on March 3rd (RSVP here) to get the lay of the land, so to speak.
