Community Farm Day

Potlucks are no more.

After long and difficult consideration, we've decided to move away from the Community Potlucks we've had in summers past. While we've enjoyed them tremendously, they were no longer serving our needs and too challenging to sustain.


New: Community Farm Day

Celebrating and Supporting Wild Willow Farm

Volunteering, Classes, Yoga, Tours, Wood-fired Pizza, Bonfire+

Third Saturdays from May to October
(Events vary month to month. See this month's timeline below)


Saturday, July 15

Farming is all about food, and food is best when shared with community, so what better way to say that than by hosting a monthly community gathering? On third Saturdays each month from May through October, we open the doors for classes, volunteering, yoga, tours, food and more. Not only are we raising funds that keep our operation's gates open, on these days, Wild Willow gives thanks to our amazing community of students, volunteers, educators, fans and eaters of every stripe. Familiar faces and new smiles are always welcome to these joyous gatherings that include educational workshops, volunteer activities, farm tour, and more. See photos from our May 2014 potluck taken by Gregory Berg.
