Week in Photos: 3

Change is constant on the farm: unfolding slowly and steadily through the lifecycle of crops and daily tasks, and sometimes abruptly with a burst of activity on the farm. This week seemed to buzz at City Roots. Construction began on the new "Farm Kitchen" building, sides went up on the new High Tunnel, and fields were prepped for the first of Spring planting. The current flurry of activity signals change ahead, while the steady hum of growing food grounds us.
