Growing for Good – Potato Planting Day
April 2, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
An opportunity to help your community… get out of the house and help your neighbors in need all while safely maintaining social distancing!
Volunteers who enjoy the great outdoors, don’t mind getting dirty, and want to help others are asked to join us for another planting extravaganza at Historic Sotterley, as part of our “Growing for Good” program! We are continuing the challenging work of sustainably farming the land. What we produce at Sotterley supports those in need in partnership with local food pantries.
One planting session on two different dates to choose from: 9:00 am and 12:30 pm. Perfect oppotunity for your Girl Scout OR Boy Scout troops to meet volunteer requirements! This is a family-friendly event – we invite anyone 5 and older to help plant.
Please sign up in advance so we know how many volunteers to expect.
Plan to arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to your start time and check-in at the Farm Building next to the Visitor Center.
We highly recommend hats, gloves, sunscreen, bug spray, shoes and clothes you are not afraid to get dirty!
