Thanks to everyone who came out last weekend for NFI’s kickoff event/seed-giveaway courtesy of our non-profit sponsor, America the Beautiful Fund!

We had a hugely helpful group of AmeriCorps youth working with us, who were such hard workers they were able to build all our wood-chip horizontal pathways in under two hours!!

The youth were joined by about a dozen other volunteers, some checking out NFI for the first time–including our youngest little helper Emma!
A couple dozen community gardeners joined us for the seed give-away, as well as a local French TV station!
By the end of the day, volunteers had transplanted 4 trays of lettuce seedlings, and set up hoops and row-covers over a mixed bed of carrots and beets, another bed of spinach, and yet anther a bed of snap peas.

Please join us this Saturday April 4th at 8:30am for another transplanting workday– we’ll be moving several trays of brassicas from their temporary home in the greenhouse into the ground! Email for more information… The workday will be followed by a potluck BBQ– please RSVP if you plan to attend!
