Mormon Helping Hands this Saturday!

Members of a local congregation from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be providing service at the Farm this Saturday, April 28, from 9 am to noon, as part of their annual state service project "Mormon Helping Hands."

We are thrilled that the Menlo Park Ward has agreed to perform service clearing, preparing, and planting land; putting up row signs; assembling a shed, compost bin, and tomato cages; and cleaning up the area. Their service will be invaluable, and we can't wait for the fun event.

All ages are welcome to attend. We will have projects for all ages and fitness levels, as well as activities for the children.

Please bring (if you have them): gloves, hoes, shovels, rakes, hammers, crowbars, paint brushes, kids yard tools, beach shovels and buckets, brooms, scrub brushes, old rags, and newspaper. We would also love to have your old garbage cans, if you would like to donate them. And, don't forget your hats and sunscreen!

Directions: The Farm is across the street from 809 Schembri Lane, East Palo Alto (click "Map" at the right), but parking is limited. Please park in the Home Depot/Taco Bell parking lots on E. Bayshore in EPA and look for the shuttle signs near Taco Bell. We will have a shuttle van to take you to the Farm nearby.

Any questions, please email us at

It's time to start the 2012 season at the Farm! Need volunteers!

We have already had a group of people from Propel Fuels, along with a few others, do some major clearing of the land for the Farm this year. Now we need to finish prepping the soil and get planting!

We plan to do the prepping and planting this Saturday, April 7, starting at 9 am (we will likely be there earlier but want to make the time more manageable for volunteers). We would love all the help we can get!

What better way to celebrate the Easter season than to participate in some good service? Please email us at if you will be able to come volunteer. If you have them, bring your garden tools (shovels, hoes, rakes) and gloves--if not, just show up and we'll get you outfitted. We hope to see you there!
