The Farm Stand is held every Thursday at Tricycle Gardens’ HQ (2107 Jefferson Avenue) from 4:00 – 7:00 PM. See you on Thursday!


Volunteers are needed 11/19 and 11/20 to help with the continuing move:

As Tricycle Gardens finalizes the move of our growing space from our HQ to the Urban Farm, we need your help to:

  • transplant perennials
  • clean and empty sub-irrigated raised beds
  • dismantle the base of the green house

We will be joined by Junk Shuttle, LLC to transport gravel, lumber, plants, etc. We’ll provide snacks, water, gloves and tools.
