Each year, at the end of the farming season, the Board of Directors hosts a Volunteer Appreciation Brunch to celebrate the growing number of much appreciated volunteers who support our small, two-to-three-person staff.
Over one hundred individual volunteers help by collecting and washing eggs, catching chickens ready for harvest, tending the Pick-Your-Own flower garden and restocking the Farm Store. Other activities include collecting maple sap, clearing rock walls, mowing and cutting firewood. Volunteers also support our community education programs and events including the Farmer’s Helper classes, school visits and volunteering, Codman Camp Out, Club Codman, Harvest Feast and Fair and our Fourth of July float (best in show this year!)
During the brunch, farm manager Pete Lowy spoke, “We know that so many people’s lives are busy and filled with family, work, school and other community activities. We always appreciate the time folks spend on the farm helping out, whether it’s just an hour or two a week or full days. I am personally grateful because 1) I love seeing friendly faces around the farm and 2) your contributions really are valued as we have so much to do and our small staff cannot possible keep the farm going. Thanks for coming, contributing, working so hard and for being such good friends of the farm.” Pete then highlighted the individual contributions of so many caring, hard working volunteers.
