Urbandale Farm News

Introducing Urbandale Farm's New Farm Manager!

We are excited to welcome Katherine Kelley to the Urbandale Farm Team!  Katherine is the new Farm Manager and Apprentice Mentor.  

Katherine grew up in Rockford, Illinois, and completed her M.S. degree in Crop Science from the University of Illinois.  Coming to Michigan five years ago, Katherine completed the Organic Farmer Training Program at MSU in 2011 and stayed on for the next three years as the Farm Stand Manager, Program Manager and Instructor of the program.  She learned a great deal about diversified fruit and vegetable production, as well as solidifying her passion of teaching others about growing plants and food. She is very excited to become a part of Urbandale as it combines both of these interests while being a friendly, exciting environment to work in.  Visit our website to read Katherine's complete bio and see below for a photo!

In this transition we are also wishing Sarah Fillius the best as she moves to southern Minnesota to pursue farming closer to her family in Iowa.  Sarah is excited to move closer to home, but so sad to say good bye to the Urbandale community.  She will be missed!

Internship and Volunteer Opportunities

We are loving the sweet spring sunshine, longer days, and warmer weather that this change of season brings.  As you thaw out from winter, consider joining us as we start the 2015 growing season in earnest!

Spring Volunteer Opportunities--We are especially in need of volunteers to join our internship crew on Fridays, 1-4 pm.  The first field plantings are just around the corner and we'll need help preparing the beds for planting as well as seeding and transplanting.  Join us on a Friday afternoon for a fun and productive time!  Call 999-3916 to RSVP.
