The Taste of Summer

Our first strawberries came in this week! Nothing tastes quite as sweet as those first hand picked berries right out of our farms. It is a joy to share these fruits with our young people, many of whom have never tasted fresh local strawberries.

The week before summer program held another major highlight. Wednesday all of Youth Farm’s Project LEAD joined together to do farm work across the five neighborhoods. In Lyndale we mulched half of our Horn Towers Farm and finished installing a drip irrigation system. Here are a couple photos from the day. See you next week!
