Now Media Group


The Goodman Youth Farm — a project of Community GroundWorks — is having its third annual Community Day from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at Goodman Youth Farm, 5017 Sudbury Way, Madison.

The event includes bike blender salsa, edible veggie art, farm tours, beekeeping demos, and activities for kids of all ages.

Everyone in the community is invited to this free event to see the types of youth programming the Youth Farm offers, as well as celebrate this year's projects completed by local youth ages 4 years through high school.

This year the Goodman Youth Farm will have more than 2000 different visiting students. At the farm they have learned to grow, care for, and cook many different fruits and vegetables, as well as serve their community by harvesting and donating thousands of pounds of fresh produce.

Community Day is a day to thank them for their hard work, and to allow them to show off all that they have accomplished.

Organized in Madison, Wisconsin in 2001 as The Friends of Troy Gardens, Community GroundWorks serves diverse communities and schools across the region.
