Last year we gleaned at Buttonwood farm and this year we’re selling flowers, plants, and produce at its market! Alan and Debbie Wentz, owners of Buttonwood farm and market have offered to share 6 acres of fertile soil, 2 high tunnel green houses, and their farm stand with Project SHARE for the growing season!
What a wonderful blessing this offer is as part of the proceeds will benefit SHARE. We have planted hundreds of pepper and tomato plants. We will also be planting corn, squash, carrots, sunflowers and melons. “This is a place for people to learn about more than just harvesting, but also about starting and nurturing plants. A farm is physical hope. We want to show people how hope needs to be cultivated for it to be more than just wishful thinking,” explains Elaine Livas, Executive Director.
To make Buttonwood farm successful we need volunteers and recipients to help run the register, plant and harvest the crops, and drivers to make runs to the Shippensburg auction to buy flowers.
If you have the heart to serve in any of these areas please let Mary know by calling 249-7773. Buttonwood farm and market is located at 980 Waggoners Gap Road. Stop by and check it out!
Buttonwood Market hours are Thursdays & Fridays from 12—6 pm and Saturdays from 10 am—6 pm.
