We’re awash with wonderful volunteer groups at Marra Farm! Thanks to the dedication of our farm manager Sue McGann, and the fantastic flow of volunteers, there’s a whole lot of food growing at Marra this spring.
Each time I go down to Marra to learn with the 3rd graders or harvest with volunteers, I discover something new – be it about arugula or artichokes.
Artichokes are a crazy sight at Marra. These perennials always elicit exclamations of amazement. Their leaves sprawl out like a jungle and a little artichoke comes out of the top.
Artichokes! And ladybugs for luck.
Arugula flowers are a favorite among the 3rd grade crowd – we’ve decided they taste like peanuts. Who doesn’t love to eat a flower?
