Come Grow With Us garden

Every year we have a group of dedicated gardeners, experienced and learners. We have filled up our plots for the 2018 growing season, but don’t hesitate to   send a message to urbanfarmspryfield@gmail.com if you have questions about volunteering at the Farm, about purchasing vegetables, about holding an event at the Farm, or about getting a plot in the future.

We use only chemical-free gardening at the Urban Farm. If you are assigned a plot you must be able to contribute about three hours per month of volunteer time.

We will contact you in early April to confirm whether or not you have a plot.
