Farm Volunteer Day at SPACE on Ryder Farm

Volunteers will work alongside SPACE's Director of Farming Julie Noble and farm staff to help with transplanting and weeding organic vegetables, herbs and flowers, as well as preparing gleaned produce for SPACE's partnership with Second Chance foods, a local food access nonprofit that diverts unused produce to community members in need. SPACE on Ryder Farm is a nonprofit residency program and organic farm located on the grounds of a 224-year-old family homestead in Putnam County, New York, just an hour north of New York City. SPACE provides over 150 artists and innovators each year with fully-subsidized residencies, 50% of which are granted to people of color and other underrepresented voices. The only requirements at SPACE are that residents attend three communal meals each day, share what they’ve developed while in residence at the culmination of their residency and give back two hours to Ryder Farm. In addition to stocking SPACE’s residency kitchen, produce from Ryder Farm is available at the Friday Union Square Greenmarket in NYC, at SPACE’s roadside stand on Starr Ridge Road in Brewster and via a sliding scale CSA (community supported agriculture) membership program serving both NYC and Brewster. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old or 6 years old with an adult to participate in this event. Please turn into the driveway with the white Ryder Farm sign and park in the grassy area on your left hand side. Please dress appropriately for the weather, with appropriate closed toe footwear. Volunteers should bring sunscreen, a wide-brimmed hat and a full water bottle, and be prepared to work in the sun. This project is a part of 9/11: Serve + Remember.
