Farm gatherings, work parties, U-Pick opportunities...Radix Farm is a bustling community full of food lovers of all ages. Radix Farm would not exist without our amazing and supportive friends.
U-Pick opportunities abound for CSA members. Come out to the farm and fill your baskets with peas, cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, blueberries, and flowers. Items are available by farmer discretion.
There are many opportunities for learning at Radix Farm! Sustainable Agriculture students from Wenatchee Valley College come out each year and learn about organic vegetable production, as well as get their hands dirty, helping with planting and harvesting.
We also partner with Joyful Scholars Montessori School in Wenatchee. The students have learned about where our food comes from by helping with harvests. They have been introduced to the world of beekeeping and met amazing insects, both friends and foe of the garden. They have also helped glean produce for our local food banks! We are in the process of developing a junior high Montessori program our here at the farm.
We also have workshops! Interested in canning tomato soup or salsa? Want to braid garlic? Participate in our fun community building classes!
Strawbale Building Work Party
We built a strawbale cooler with more than 30 helping hands. Stacking bales, mixing cob, spreading plaster, and spreading more plaster...it was a labor of love. Now our veggies have a safe place out of the hot sun!
Greenhouse and High Tunnel Work Parties
Our greenhouse and high tunnel were big projects that could not have been done without the help of some awesome helpers. These structures help us grow our own vegetable starts and extend our growing season to provide our customers with fresh veggies for as many months as possible! Delicious food, plenty of thirst quenching beverages, and good company make the work go easy(ier)!
