When is the pick up day and time?

 Pick up days will be on Wednesdays at the UVM Horticulture Research Center (affectionately known as the “Hort Farm”).  The pick up time will be from 4 to 7pm. If you come out to the farm, you will be able to pick some of your own vegetables, harvest herbs and flowers, and get to have a great time out in the fields with us! If you cannot make this pick up time, arrangements can be made on an individual basis. Visitors are always welcome out to the farm!

Will there be an on-campus pick-up?

 YES!! We are having an on campus pick up this year. On campus pick up will be at Jeffords Hall (exact location to be announced) from 4 to 6pm, also on Wednesdays. Members must specify at the beginning of the season which pick up option is preferred. If the location needs to be switched, a week's notice in advance is requested by the crew. Thank you!

 Where is the Hort Farm?

 The Hort Farm is located at 65 Green Mountain Drive in South Burlington, just behind the GE building and next to the Vermont Common School
