The garlic is a foot high at and last weekend's rain helped to gave a good start early season plants such as kale, escarole and peas, said farmer Brenda Caldwell.
The farm on Boulder Road follows a model of "community supported agriculture" which provides shares in the seasonal harvest for members. This year the farm has 66 members and a long waiting list, according to their website.
On Sunday, volunteers will install a 72 foot long "high tunnel" hoop house that will provide cover for tomatoes and other crops, Caldwell said. It will also reduce insect damage to the organic vegetables. The tunnel was donated by Cheshire resident Jim Clause.
An environmental educator, Sven Phil, has been hired to provide free community workshops this summer. They will be similar to last year's programs, Caldwell said, such as ecosystem exploration, insect ecology and natural crafts programs.
Workshop information will be available on Cheshire Patch and the farm's Facebook page.
