Community Farm Work Day

Join us for a Community Farm Work Day at Hilltop Hanover Farm!

Do you enjoy getting your hands dirty and working outdoors? Have you ever kept potatoes in your kitchen for a little too long and wondered why they begin to grow? Then mark your calendars for our Community Farm Work Day on Sunday, April 21, 2024 from 12:30 - 3:30pm as we plant potatoes! This event will take place at Hilltop Hanover Farm located in Yorktown Heights, NY.

Potatoes are planted in early spring, growing slowly but surely for many weeks until they are large enough for harvest in midsummer. Jump into the field alongside our farmers and pitch in with planting rows of seed potatoes. Enjoy working as a community to help this once-a-season task fly by!

Volunteers will learn about the process of preparing and curing seed potato, and best practices for planting. This task will involve bending and light raking.

No prior experience necessary. All ages and abilities welcome, but please note that youngsters must have adult supervision. We recommend joining close to the approximate start time, for training and to ensure there's time to take part in the planting.
