Farm Lunch

Are you interested in learning more about the Food Shuttle Farm? Would you or members of your team like to learn ways you can help our farm without getting your hands dirty? Come and spend an hour of your time with us and enjoy a complimentary lunch provided by our Horizon Catering, a full-service catering company benefiting Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. You can enjoy a delicious lunch and see firsthand how an urban farm operates on a daily basis while touring our 10-acre operation.

This opportunity is great for anyone interested in volunteering or if you want to purchase locally grown produce directly from a completely organic farm. Nearly 80% of the food harvested at the farm is distributed to Inter-Faith Food Shuttle programs like: School Pantries, Mobile Tastiness Machine, Mobile Markets, and Grocery Bags for Seniors. The remaining 20% goes to for-profit productions to contribute to the farm's financial stability. 

Be sure to check out our Farm Stand on the way out and pick up fresh vegetables and fruits to take home with you!

Interested in signing up?

Please RSVP to Rachel@foodshuttle.org by 10/18.

Worms at Work! Learn to Compost with Worms!

Worms at Work! Learn to Compost with Worms!

What do you do with your food waste?

Do you bag it and send it off to a landfill?
By burying it in a landfill, it creates methane gas and contributes to
polluting our groundwater.
                                             
 STOP IT!

Let worms eat your garbage.  They LOVE it and, in return, the worms will give you castings to put in your gardens and lawn.
You will grow healthier, bigger vegetables, fruits and flowers, all pesticide/herbicide free.
Using earthworms and microorganisms to convert organic waste into black
earthy-smelling, nutrient-rich humus is known as "vermicomposting".

Let earthworms help you turn your food waste into a valuable resource.

Our presenter Susan Quinby-Honoer, founder of Red Hen Enterprises, (http://www.redhenenterprises.net/services.html) will teach students about how they can keep vermicompost worms at home without any need for turning or flipping your pile.
