Each year we participate in several events in our community, which we need help with. Help is needed to set up and tear down the booth as well as manning the booth. This will be done in 2 hour blocks of time and we will take 2 people per block. This will count towards your hours required for the farm. What we need is people who will talk with those who come into the booth and give out information.
