We've been preparing for spring at OSBG, with the help of fifteen student volunteers from Colorado and Connecticut! In their week here, the volunteers have been learning about our work in the 9th Ward and our mission for change in the community, all while getting their hands dirty with the ins and outs of the farm.
Together, we're taking care of the goats, making and delivering compost, harvesting bean sprouts and arugula, as well as getting the ground ready for all the seeds we'll be planting.

The soil they dig up is rich, promising for the new life to come. So here's to another season of growth at Blair Grocery with thanks to everyone who has helped make it possible!
