Raspberry Planting Party

We are planning a raspberry planting party for March 21, 2015, from 9am to 12:30pm.

I am planning a volunteer planting party - to help my start up vegetable, fruit, and berry farm at Fox Farm.     I manage a restaurant full time and work on my days off to till, plant, weed, harvest, and prune fruit trees.  The help would be greatly appreciated.    

We will be planting around 60 raspberry plants,  200 strawberry plants and around 300-400 tomato plants.   I will provide coffee and danishes in the morning, and when we are finished around 12:30 - we will have a lunch under the the two big trees I call the twins.  One is a pepper tree and the other is a Eucalyptus tree that are very big and have huge canopies that provide a nice plant to set up some picnic tables.  They are right beside the pond so its a really nice setting to relax after digging in the dirt and planting under warm blue skies.  

The farm may host some type of berry festival the following year when all the berry plants are producing.

In appreciation, for the help, volunteers will be able to take at least one raspberry plant home, and quite a few tomato and strawberry plants.
