50e4f5_e2a0384b916e4c31aa48c012178b3102~mv2Farmer John’s Plot will manage a farm laboratory across the road from ConVal High School where students from that school and others will engage in hands-on sustainable farming courses and experiences.  They are joining forces on this farm site with the Cornucopia Project, a local non-profit that focuses on tying gardening to primary education.   Their programs will combine to provide a seamless path from elementary garden education all the way up through high school and post graduate sustainable agricultural training via our incubator program.

They are partnering with the local Peterborough Food Pantry to help to supply fresh and nutritious food choices to area families with low income.  This is a pilot program that could provide a great example to other food pantries on how local farmers and organizations can partner to make local healthy food options available to those of all income levels.

Also, they are collaborating with The Well School, a private K-8 school in Peterborough, to provide them with a farm to school program.  They will manage a farm site adjacent to the school property and conducting farm education classes with the students throughout the school year.

Farm to Table Fundraiser Dinner
August 23rd, 2014 at 5pm

Farmer John’s Plot Farm to Table Dinner will feature a multi-course meal of organic produce, meats, eggs and maple syrup exclusively from our farm.  There will also be a tasting of local wines, live music and a tour of their CSA gardens.  The fundraiser dinner will take place next to our CSA gardens, in the beautiful barn at 18 Stonlea Lane in Dublin.  Please join them for this wonderful meal of their harvest put together by local caterer Aubrey Saxton (The Saxy Chef).

They are asking for a minimum donation of $79 per ticket.  The money raised goes to support donations of organic produce to low income families (through the River Center in Peterborough), our Future Farmer Training program and our non-profit mission.  If you have already made a donation to Farmer John’s Plot this year that can be used towards your tickets.  For tickets and more information contact John at farmerjohnsplot@gmail.com or 603-289-5927.
