Open Farms volunteer harvesting.

Farm Fresh

For Kelly Wilson (Open Farms Manager) and her team, putting our clients first is always top of mind. This summer they planted, grew and harvested crops at our five Open Farm locations with the help of 20+ organizations and more than 400 volunteers. They have assisted us in planting and harvesting 275 pounds of Salanova lettuce, 400 pounds of zucchini and summer squash, 250 heads of lettuce, 1,750 radishes, and we’ve just begun harvesting seven varieties of cherry tomatoes! Our farms will also produce vegetables for some of our Hmong menu recipes, including harvested Yokatta-na and Napa cabbage.
