There are so many ways to become engaged at the Cable Community Farm! From volunteering to donating to having a plot in one of the Community Gardens, take a peak at how you can become involved growing food and building community! To receive our monthly e-newsletter, sign up on the homepage.
The Cable Community Farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We depend on financial contributions to further our mission of growing food and building community.
We have two Community Garden sites: the Community Garden at the Cable Community Farm (located at the farm at 13765 Perry Lake Road, Cable, WI) and the Downtown Garden (located behind Fogarty Medical Clinic and across the street from the Chequamegon Fat Tire office in downtown Cable). Both sites are fenced, with easy access to water, good dirt, and a supportive community of growers. Download a 2016 Garden Plot Application for plot sizes and prices. If you’d like to serve as a “mentor” for beginning gardeners in the Downtown Garden or if your group would like to volunteer in the Growing Together Garden, email Katie.
Growing Together Garden
The Growing Together Garden is where community volunteers work together to plant, weed, water, and harvest fresh, organic produce for the Cable Area Food Shelf. The Growing Together Garden hosts “Open Garden” events every Sunday, from 2:00 to 6:00 pm, from June through September. Since the local food pantry is only once a month, the produce that is harvested on Sundays is put into the “milkhouse” building at the farm for Free Food Mondays, when anybody can pick up fresh, local produce at no cost. Donations are gratefully accepted. For more information, email Katie.
Spring Work Days
In May, there is always plenty to do to get ready for the busy summer growing season. From clearing brush to tilling garden plots to painting buildings and fences, there’s a job that is just right for everybody.
The Community Beekeeping program is new for 2106. If you would like to learn how to raise bees, email Monte, our Head Beekeeper.
Come and visit us at the Cable Farmers Market Saturday mornings from June through September. The Farmers Market is located in the parking lot between the Brick House Cafe and the Cable UCC Church.
