(Page 2 of 2)

Aside from its farm stand, the Crossroads staff will host a farmer’s market previously based in Baldwin, which will be manned by its initial owners and vendors, starting June 5.

“My feeling is that we have a lot of buzz about the farm, and we’re doing a detailed volunteer program this year, so we’re engaging our volunteers early,” he said. “All in all, we’re very excited about what’s going on [at Crossroads].”

In preparing for the farm’s opening day on April 19, White said Crossroads staff has briefed its volunteers through a robust orientation process over the winter, providing one-on-one training so that volunteers may perform fairly advanced farming tasks.

Aside from the new farmer’s market, White said Crossroads will offer many other new attractions this season, including musical acts scheduled to perform for various activities, and a partnership with the Malverne Community Theatre Group to entertain both kids and adults at the farm.
