On the recent weekend of June 16, 2012, the Resource Center’s City Farm conducted a “farm raising” for the new farm at 57th and Perry in Washington Park. the farm is a joint project of the Washington Park Consortium and the Resource Center’s City Farm Program. It was a great success due to the incredible efforts of many.
Merrill Smith, the new City Farm Director lead the effort. A request to the AUA listserv for volunteers brought more offers than we could handle. Sorry we couldn’t accommodate everyone!
Thanks to the hardworking locally hired crew. Thanks to all who gave of their time as volunteers.
