Letter to the Editor: Rugged Roots Farm seeks volunteers

Volunteers are sought to help out at Rugged Roots Farm in Quincy. Photo submitted

I’m really excited about the new Volunteers program at Rugged Roots Farm.

The first Wednesday of the month, from 5:30 until 7 p.m., is a lovely time to watch the colors change and help out on the farm. Last week the sky toward Spanish Peak was spectacular: alive with large, puffy clouds and birds, very chatty birds.

Every Thursday morning, drop in anytime from 8-11 a.m. to volunteer. It is still cool that early.

I got to add compost to raspberries and garlic. Now I have a special feeling for those two rows of raspberries and will watch them closely.

There is always something to do on this friendly farm. Consider dropping by this Thursday. Rugged Roots Farm, one of the projects of Lost Sierra Food Project, is across from the Quincy airport on highways 70/89. You’ll see a big barn and trucks. All are welcome.
