Oliver Kelley Farm Grand Opening

By: Rebekah Bjork | June 1, 2017

49 volunteers contributed more than 220 hours assisting with the early-morning Donor Breakfast, button-making, farm animal safety, seed planting, vinaigrette making, and windmill activities.

Our volunteers helped serve more than 1,900 general admission visitors plus approximately 250 members who attended the Donor Breakfast and Grand Opening events. A special thanks to our wonderful volunteers who helped make this event a success!
