Horn Farm Happenings – April 16, 2021

Are you up for the Challenge?

The only constant in nature is change – and it is up to us to learn how to adapt!

This past Sunday we had planned to kick-off our Triple 10K Challenge with a volunteer day at the farm. Due to inclement weather, we postponed the planting until this coming Sunday, April 18th from 10am-2pm.

Mother Nature’s change of plans hasn’t deterred us. A small group of volunteers pitched in this Wednesday (pictured above) for the first of many Wednesday afternoon volunteer events.

We have have BIG GOALS this spring. Together we can make it happen!
Our aim is to:

  • plant 10,000 trees,
  • raise $10,000 and,
  • triple our impact with $10,000 in matching funds.

Are you up for the challenge? We have hundreds of trees on site, ready to be planted thanks to Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership. Please join us and register to volunteer this Sunday. If you can’t make it this weekend, there are still plenty of opportunities to get your hands dirty on Wednesday afternoons – now through May 19th. We hope to see on the farm!

Welcome Farm to Freezer YORK!

The Horn Farm Center’s Summer Kitchen is bustling once again after being closed to classes during the pandemic. This month we welcomed a new tenant – Farm to Freezer YORK.

Farm to Freezer offers freshly prepared food made with locally sourced ingredients. Owner, Mary Ellen Martin and her staff are utilizing the Summer Kitchen several times a week to prepare healthy, nutritious, and flavorful ready-to-cook meals to their Freezer Club members. We are proud to support this local business at the Horn Farm!




Horn Farm Center Health and Safety Policy

Due to COVID-19 the Horn Farm Center is offering on-site educational programming with some modifications in order to ensure the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff. All classes will be held outside and are limited to 15 participants per class. If more than one class occurs on the same day, start times will be staggered to reduce the number of individuals arriving at the same time. Multiple hand sanitizer stations are available. We will adjust as needed as time passes and things change.

Participant expectations are as follows:

  • Participants are required to bring a mask and wear it when proper physical distancing cannot be maintained. We have a limited supply on hand if you forget yours.
  • Physical distancing of 6 feet must be maintained except in case of family members.
  • Do not attend if sick or recovering.

Until further notice, no indoor classes are available at this time. We are offering virtual classroom experiences via zoom.
