Beginning the first Sunday of June, Ekar Farm will be open for drop-in volunteers to get their hands dirty and connect with their food!
Come by the farm any time on a Sunday from 9 a.m. til 12 p.m. to lend a helping hand in growing food for the hungry.
If you have a big group of people you’d like to bring on a Sunday, let us know in advance by signing up online here.
During our Days in the Dirt, Ekar Farm’s Lead Educator will provide 30 minutes of FREE fun, family farm projects starting at 10 am for kids ages 4-10! Each week we will explore farm themes like worms, bees, seeds, and more with hands-on, kid-friendly learning activities. Stay updated on the weekly themes by checking our updated schedule below:
Sunday, June 4th – Roots! Dig into the soil to discover the wonders of worms, compost, and how roots of plants depend on dirt.
Sunday, June 11th – Stems & Leaves! Explore how stems and leaves take in water and sun to help plants grow.
Sunday, June 18th – Flowers & Bees! Go beyond the beauty of flowers and honey by learning how pollination grows the foods we love.
Sunday, June 25th – Fruits & Seeds! Connect to the life cycle of plants by dissecting seeds and the fruits they came from.
Join JWI’s Young Women’s Leadership Network for a day on the farm! Celebrate and connect with inspirational Jewish women in Denver by coming to Ekar Farm for a tour, a work project, and a locally-grown light dinner. Give back to the community while building a community of empowered Jewish women!
