Island Grown Initiative is inviting the public to come get a look at the food-related work going on at their Thimble Farm property.

The free, interactive open house will take place on Monday, August 31 from 4 to 6 p.m.

The tour includes a look at IGI’s 30,000-square-foot greenhouse, their mobile poultry processing unit, and a newly-planted orchard. Island Grown Schools will be on hand at the community garden space, which will also feature a tomato taste test. You can also learn more about the gleaning program, which harvests excess produce to give to Islanders in need.

Kids are welcome, but dogs are not.
