UPPER MEADOWS FARM WILL BE MAKING ITS TV DEBUT AND WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GET READY!
Because Upper Meadows Farm is one of the only maple syrup producers in New Jersey, NJN News will be bringing a TV crew to the farm on Tuesday, March 24 to document just how we do it! This is an amazing opportunity to show all of NJ what we’re up to here at the farm, as well as gain some exposure!
Here’s where the volunteers come in: Things are moving along at an awesome pace at the farm! Planting is well under way in the potting shed, and construction on the new market area is moving along briskly! Because we are so busy getting ready to grow lots of amazing food, we could really use a few extra sets of hands to help us make sure the farm is looking its best for the shoot next week. We need volunteers this Saturday and Sunday (March 21 and 22) to help us do things like organize, help get a greenhouse righted, and general tidying up around the farm. It’s a great way to get your 4 volunteer hours in early, and help Upper Meadows put its best foot forward this season. It’s also a great way for new members to begin their relationship with the farm by seeing it first hand, and getting their hands dirty! And, you’ll be able to see all of your hard work when the program airs on NJN!
When: Saturday March 21 and Sunday March 22
Where: Upper Meadows Farm
What: Helping Upper Meadows Farm look its best for our TELEVISION DEBUT!
R.S.V.P: By e-mailing Megan Moore, our volunteer coordinator.
NYC residents please note: There is a Short Line bus from Port Authority to Milford, Pa., which is just a few minutes from the farm. If you take the 10:00 a.m. bus, a farm staff member will be able to pick you up and bring you to the farm, and drop you back off for the 2:55 p.m. return bus. The schedule is available here under “Pennsylvania Points”.
