Veggielution Olympics

Coming August 6th, replacing our workday that Saturday.

Have some fun, win prizes, and support our youth program Dig Crew (and help our summer youth leader Alyssa Quinonez represent us at the National Rooted in Community Conference in Philadelphia, P.A.
Our summer youth leader Alyssa Quinonez will be representing Veggielution and the Dig Crew this summer at the national Rooted In Community conference held in Philadelphia, PA.  Rooted In Community is a national grassroots network of diverse youth and adults working together and committed to fostering healthy communities and food justice through urban and rural agriculture, community gardening, food security, and related environmental justice work.  Alyssa and fellow youth will work to create the Youth Food Bill of Rights to be presented to congress at the conference.  There is even word of presenting it to the First Lady!  For more information, please visit
Alyssa has been working hard to plan and coordinate the Farm Olympics as a way to support her trip to Philadelphia.  She will be participating in the events and gathering donations for her trip.

Prizes and Games!

Family-fun, including corn shucking, watermelon seed-spitting, giant vegetable toss, cherry tomato chubby-bunny, relay races, and a corn-on-the-cob eating contest. All this will lead up to our main event, the Weed-a-Thon, with contestants scouring the farm for our Most Wanted weeds and weighing in their bounty at the end to win one of many exciting prizes donated by local businesses.
