Concert Benefit

Quite a crowd came to Tellus360 in downtown Lancaster to witness The Willie Marble Experience, in concert to benefit Homefields. A big shoutout to Music For Everyone, who (among many other things) arranges monthly concerts to benefit local non-profits. October was our month!

Willie Marble’s “Swampadelic Sound”, featuring the World Famous Marblelettes, on full display.

Shout out to the Millersville University students and professor Cynthia Taylor who came out on United Way Day of Caring 2019! Their help was instrumental in getting the property in shape for our upcoming Picnic in the Fields.

Marie and Bill Hogeland are shown here with their daughter Taryn (Homefields farmer emerita). They heard our irrigator had some mechanical problems, and came from Lebanon County to donate a fix.

A special group of Franklin & Marshall College students came out to work the fields on August 23. Thanks so much for helping plant cabbage, harvest edamame, and clean garlic!

In July, members of Friendship Heart Gallery in Lancaster dropped by for a painting session in the barn.

Don’t be surprised if you find plein air artists in the fields or around the greenhouses from time to time!

 Amberlyn, Mark, Lauren, and David stopped by for a visit in early May. They’re from Able Services / Leg Up Farm, a horticultural therapy farm in York, and it was great to cross-pollinate! Hope you guys had fun in the new greenhouse.

Here’s Taryn Hogeland (former Homefields Farm Manager) with a team of students from the Milton Hershey School on a field trip, literally! Thanks for coming to Homefields Care Farm to hear about organically minded farming practices and a variety of produce.

 And volunteers from the Occupational Development Center are back with us in 2019, helping with weekly projects such as propagating seedlings and preparing produce for pickup. Welcome back!

If these happy folks look familiar, then you remember Meaningful Day Academy (Friendship Community) volunteers, back for a new season of preparing seedlings and sowing crops. It’s great to be with you again!


Homefields on YouTube

It’s been over two decades since we bought the horse farm that started this all (really?!?). Yet it wasn’t until fairly recently that Tom Strauss, one of our founding fathers, created a video that distills our 25-year history into less than 5 minutes. Check it out. Click on the “Watch YouTube.com” logo at near bottom right to see in a larger screen.
