Have you been to the farm lately? The Kids Food Basket farm at Ridge Point is getting fuller and greener. The crops are growing, a harvest is coming, and we can’t wait to bring in the crop and distribute food to children in our community. 

The farm is about growing food (obviously), but it’s also an education center. The farm is an excellent place to teach children about the food growing process. Kids Food Basket partners with schools in the area to offer guided learning tours. Kids get to visit and experience the sensory gardens, greenhouses, compost systems, and no-till and living soil farming methods, among many other cool things directly related to their school curriculum.

We are currently on track with the newly launched sensory garden, a must-see (and touch). The soon-to-be-opened greenhouse is another amazing stop. We want this to be a farm that feeds the body, mind, and spirit as our children appreciate the food on the plates, the environment that produces it, and the God who makes it all possible. But we need your help to get everything ready for student learning visits when schools re-open. 

Would you commit to a few hours of getting your hands dirty for the sake of the kids in our community? Whether you have a green thumb or manage to kill cacti, we could use your help! 

The best way to get connected is to sign-up at https://kidsfoodbasket.org/volunteer/, create a login, and the KFB team will connect with you on opportunities coming up.

See you at the farm 🙂
