    9:30-12:30
  • Where - Suyematsu Farm, Day Road
  • Parking at the Suyematsu Farm Stand on Day Road.
  • OUR FIRST EFFORTS WERE MET WITH SUMMER RAIN IN JULY! With the help of the Kitsap Conservation District and the City of Bainbridge Island, work to restore the headwaters of Manzanita Creek has been underway since 2016. Invasives have been pulled and many natives planted. But we need your help! It's time for a delicate hand weeding around young natives, and of course many hands make light work!

    Please RSVP to morgan.houk@friendsofthefarms.org If you have questions please contact Morgan at the same address. There will be tasks for all ages!
