We have a strawberry field that has recently been overcome by a plant called hairy vetch. It's a lovely plant with purple flowers that adds helpful Nitrogen to the soil, but it's growing over top of the strawberry plants and keeping them from the photosynthesis they need to make sugars for their berries. Yikes! If you feel like joining us, pulling weeds is a job that's made much easier by more hands. Come on over! You're welcome any time this Saturday between 8:00am and 2:00pm. Call ahead to let us know we should expect you (301-627-4662).
And while you're considering lending us a hand, note that this Saturday is certainly not your only opportunity--we are happy for help every day of the week except Sundays. You can find more information at www.cbf.org/csa-volunteer.
