Medway Community Farm Finds Ways to Grow During Covid
Children participating in Medway Community Farm’s summer programs worked with members of the Massachusetts Master Gardeners to harvest food for the food pantry.
The Medway Community Farm recently held a workshop on stick fortbuilding. Children learned the basics and worked as a team to build one of their designs.Who doesn’t love a fort? The kids were taught the basics and went into the woods to build, each one was individual even though it required more than one builder, so they cooperated and came up with a building that they built together. The second session of this program added safe fire starting, all skills you should know. The Farm’s most recent offering is toddler time. This is a mommy and me sort of program where little ones and their parent can come to enjoy a few hours at the farm getting to be with the animals in the fresh air. This too has been well received. The farm has continued its community feel as much as was possible with the Covid restrictions. People have been able to order their produce on-line and pick it up curbside at the Farm Store. During the summer when the Store was open more hours, you could go in and pick out your own. Every safety precaution was undertaken and people were patient and more than willing to wait their turn. They hosted The Cousins Lobster truck along with TC Scoops for a day at the farm. This introduced many people to the Farm that were not aware of its existence. Even though State requirements were stringent, everyone understood and followed the directions in order to traverse the farm safely. So, with a new year approaching, keep your eye out for happenings at the farm, it appears there is always something happening. Visit www.medwaycommunityfarm.org
