Compass Farm Stand Run by Kids!
Wednesday, November 18th 11:00am - 2:00pm
I made a mistake last week and said there were two weeks left, but actually there are two weeks now! So, please sign-up to help for the last two weeks of our fall farm stand! So far many slots are open.
Thanks to those of you who volunteered last week. It was great!
Families, if you can help please choose a slot here:
Or if you'd like to be involved, but aren't sure about the sign-up, email Anna:
The farm stand is open to our whole community. Compass classes come down to visit as well as other students and faculty in the building. Students are encouraged to bring come change to buy something if they like. (See prices below for some of the veggies) We invite families and other community members to visit the stand each week too! It's a great way to get healthy, local veggies each week.
