At the Marra Farm giving garden, we welcomed more than 120 young students from Concord International Elementary and Somali Community Services Coalition. Together with our partners from Healthy Foods for South Park, we harvested pumpkins, pressed apples into fresh cider, and helped put the garden to bed for the winter. Some of these students had come down to the farm last spring to plant the very pumpkin plants that they harvested on Food Day, which they had started from seed into their classrooms.

Marra Farm is letting forth a big yawn as winter approaches, but we're not sleeping yet. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to help out with our last work parties of the season.
