Help Us Dress Up our Spaces for Summer

Lisa Mosca, Food Moxie Executive Director

May is a time to celebrate spring and prepare for summer. FOOD MOXIE staff and volunteers have been continuing to build and fill beds with compost and topsoil, plant perennial fruit, and prepare to plant culinary herbs with students and other program participants.

We invite everyone to a free Strawberry Festival Saturday, May 11, at the Awbury Agricultural Village in East Germantown. Also this month, we will display a donated quilt in the Ambler store that we plan to raffle off on Giving Tuesday, June 11, in the Mount Airy store.

Here’s a wish list of items for FOOD MOXIE and Weavers Way Farm. Our staff welcomes the support to help make our spaces better learning environments. Thank you to all our regular volunteers, workday supporters and others who make our programs special. Happy spring!
