Join fellow survivors in getting some exercise, enjoying the fresh air, and learning some healthy recipes at a local, organic farm!

Registration Details

Everyone who volunteers on the farm must fill out a liability/emergency contact waiver once a year. Waiver will be sent via email after your registration is received and confirmed. 

Fees & Payment

This event is made possible by the Sigmund E. Herzstein Jr. Trust, the Marino Health Foundation, the Crivello Fund, and the Hoffman Breast Center Fund.

Description

According to the American Cancer Society, keeping active and eating more whole, plant-based foods can significantly improve our wellbeing. What a better place to get some exercise, enjoy the fresh air, and learn some healthy recipes than a local, organic farm?

Join fellow cancer survivors and a team of physicians and residents from Mount Auburn Hospital at the Waltham Fields Community Farm, a nonprofit organization that promotes local agriculture and food access through farming operations and educational programs. We will work together in the fields, build relationships through volunteerism, learn a new recipe using farm-fresh produce, and enjoy an authentic farm-to-table tasting. Your participation in harvest activities will support Waltham Fields Community Farm’s charitable initiatives to improve access to fresh food for low-income households and local schools.

Stay for lunch; refreshments will be served. This activity takes place outdoors; dress in layers and wear closed-toe shoes. Ability to walk up to half a mile and lift up to 10 pounds is required. 

This event is free! Space is limited.
