Some of us at PRX may seem like city slickers, but yesterday as we were transformed by rain, mud, and waterproof jumpsuits, we seemed to fit in real well at Waltham Fields Community Farm.

When PRX’s developer extraordinaire Rebecca Nesson is not coding, she is the President of the Board over at Waltham Fields. She organized a work day for staff to get together and accomplish something outside the world of Pub Radio.

Despite the rain and the mud, we persevered and planted over 2000 pepper plants and saved cabbages from some serious weedage.

Then, of course, we had a feast of veggie sandwiches, salads and Becca’s homemade wine!

We had a great time out in the fields using our hands (for something other than typing!) and getting to know more about the farm, which supports local hunger relief and food access efforts and provides 500 CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares to folks in the community.

If you’re interested in getting involved, volunteering or donating to Waltham Fields Community Farm, visit their website or make a donation.
