Special considerations for COVID-19

- All common touch points as well as tools are being either sprayed with a bleach solution or washed with soap and water at least once per day.
- We are limiting volunteer registration to 15 people at a time.
- Social distancing of 6 feet or more will be observed while working on the farm.
- Bring and wear a mask for at least the brief times that it’s harder to space out. We can provide you one if needed.
- We’re adapting as new best practices come forward from public health officials.
