Open house next week at community farm

The Jamestown Community Farm will hold a public open house at the farm on Eldred Avenue on Saturday, Dec. 10, from 9 a.m. to noon.

The new barn has been completed and this will be an opportunity to walk through the new building and also around the entire farm. The barn was funded from donations from over 250 people and constructed by more than 26 local contractors who donated their labor on several occasions throughout the summer.

The farm is an all-volunteer operation that grows vegetables on approximately four acres of land and donates the produce to local food pantries and meal sites throughout the state. In its 11 years of operation, volunteers have planted, weeded, harvested and donated over 132,000 pounds of vegetables to those in need.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
