Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 22. We’re bringing back our annual Spring Planting Party at the F&F farm in Three Oaks, MI (1.5 hours from Chicago). It's a great excuse to get out of the city, shake the winter off, and rekindle your connection to Mother Earth.
Volunteers are welcome to arrive on Friday night (Apr 21) any time after 6 PM for a bonfire camp out or by 9:45 AM on Saturday (Apr 22). If you plan to camp, BYO tent and gear. You're also welcome to stay in the farm house (limited beds, plenty of floor space).
On Saturday morning, we'll get started in the field at 10 AM EST after a pancake breakfast. We'll spend the day getting plants in the ground, break for lunch (provided) and wrap up at 5 PM.
If you’re looking to continue the SW MI weekend fun after the work party, there is plenty to see and do. We are located 15 min from Lake Michigan beaches and Warren Dunes State Park, antiques on Red Arrow Hwy, Greenbush Brewery, Froehlich's Bakery and Deli, Drier's Smokehouse and Journeyman Distillery.
WHAT TO BRING: Spring can be a very muddy & wet time of year at the farm. Please bring work clothes that can/will get dirty, work boots/shoes, a water bottle, and work gloves (if you have them).
No car? Not a problem. We may be able to connect you with other cars coming from the city.
We're looking forward to showing you around our new farm home base.
