The MEVO Crew lends a hand with harvesting crops at Many Hands Farm in Barre, MA. We had an amazing time visiting this sustainable farm and we can’t wait to help out again next year.
What crop is this? You’d be surprised to find out’s garlic, and it’s one of the earliest crops we harvest at our educational farm. We’re going to be harvesting multiple varieties of delicious vegetables at our farm this year, and will be taking them straight to you.
Our volunteers from Dwight-Engelwood High School included the high school’s entire freshman class. We’d like to thank these dedicated volunteer for helping out at our farm, and we look forward to hosting them again soon.
MEVO volunteers experience the joy of canning with longtime friends and supporters of MEVO, Janna Makaeva and Greg Swisher. We harvested berries, and learned how to preserve them for many months to come. Thank you Janna and Greg!
Sunflower sprouts are just one of the many residents at our MEVO Greenhouse at Fresh Roots Educational Farm, which works to provide our plants with the ideal growing conditions.
Our interns do all kinds of things for the environment. Here we can see Rachel Laub and Angela Capalbo doing an ecological assessment of Stag Brook in Mahwah, New Jersey, a stream that flows into the Ramapo River, to learn about the health of the surrounding ecosystem.
The newest addition to the MEVO Farm family! Meet “Bee” our 8 week old kitten who we rescued from an evil tree she was stuck in and is now helping us keep our farm free of mice. She is loving all the petting and kisses she gets from volunteers and really enjoys all the things to climb and explore. Come volunteer with us any Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday and meet this little cutie! #mevo #sustainable #farm #community#kitten
Terrible tires beware! This Saturday, July 29th, at 10:00 am, MEVO volunteers are coming to take you out of the woods and put you in the landfill where you belong.
Our 2017 Summer interns smile as they harvest for our CSA Shareboxes, which allow local residents to invest and support MEVO’s sustainable agriculture practices. For more information about our CSA Shares, click on the link below: http://mevoearth.org/csa/
We use a lot of tools here at MEVO, so every year our Summer Interns get a crash course in how all of these different tools work. Here, MEVO Founder and Executive Director Eric Fuchs-Stengel shows off his hard hat, protective goggles, and sledgehammer technique for all our interns to see.
