A Little Help From Our Friends (at B.U.)

New Entry’s three incubator farm sites underwent a makeover this year at the hands of Boston University’s FYSOP Volunteer Program. Groups of 15 incoming freshmen spent five hours on August 31st, September 1st, and September 2nd getting to know some of the New Entry farmers and working on a number of projects at Richardson’s Dairy, Smith Farm, and Ogonowski Fields. The energetic groups helped clean out our hoop houses, weed the annual grasses that were taking over the pick-your-own herb garden, organize the farmers’ storage sheds, and harvest produce in the farmers’ fields. Volunteers seemed to be both tired and full of a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day and the farmers were very appreciative for the extra hands (hands that happened to be protected by work gloves generously donated by Magid Glove & Safety). Thanks to all of the hard-working volunteers and we look forward to seeing the FYSOP folks again next year!
