Preschool on the Farm: Spring 2019

Preschool on the Farm is an opportunity for young children ages 2–4 years old and their grownups to explore nature, food, and farming together through our one-hour workshops designed just for them. Each week we will explore a different farm or nature topic, engage in experiential investigation and learning, participate in movement, storytelling, and art, and visit with the barn animals.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. See the list below for sessions, dates, and topics.

2019 U-Pick Share
: $210.00

How U-Pick

For 12 weeks at less than $20/week you’ll enjoy harvesting your very own share of the freshest possible vegetables while getting outside, getting dirty, and getting involved in our community. We’ll grow a selection of tried-and-true summer favorites like squash, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, and tomatoes, and you’ll also pick unique varieties of veggies like peppers, eggplants, and tomatillos. Each share will include fresh herbs and flowers. Each week you'll receive an email newsletter, letting you know what you can expect to pick along with helpful tips and recipes to help you plan your shopping and cooking.

This is not intended to be a full-sized CSA share that would replace your food shopping completely, however our members usually find that they get plenty of vegetable goodness at a very affordable price. There's no obligation to pick everything on the list and you’re harvesting for yourself--so you never end up with veggies you don't want! Worried about missing out on weeks when you’re out of town? Just let us know ahead of time, and send a friend to pick up your share.

But those aren't the only benefits of being a U-Pick Member. Most of us truly treasure our time at the farm each week. It’s a time to get outside, enjoy the farm that we’re so lucky to have available to us, and connect with our food and each other.

Dates: U-Pick will run for 12 weeks this summer from June 19th to September 7th. You may choose to harvest your share on Wednesday afternoons from 3-6pm or on Saturday mornings from 9am-12pm.

Cost: Early Bird rate of $210/share until February 28th, $225/share afterwards. Payable either on our online storefront or by mailing a check to PO Box 148, Beacon NY 12508. We DO accept SNAP/EBT on a monthly OR weekly payment plan - just email upick@commongroundfarm.org!

Work Share Option! Help out on the farm 3 hours per week in exchange for your share. Email upick@commongroundfarm.org to fill out a work share application.
