Spring Fest – In Summer

Get out to the farm – June 24th – for the Just Roots Spring Fest!
This event was postponed from May 19th due to a full weekend forecast of rain.

Spring Fest has something for everyone. Help kick off the growing season with a day at the Greenfield Community Farm. Bring your friends and bring your family – Spring Fest will feature live music, local food, craft beer and plenty of artisans and educators eager to share their craft and knowledge with you. Get your spring starts and tour the farm and gardens with our Farmer too. We can’t think of a better way to bring in the warmer weather. See you at the farm for Spring Fest!

Here is what you have to look forward to:
