Dear Friends of Pingree Farms –
Due to unforeseen circumstances we are cancelling both planting days which were scheduled for Saturday, May 19 and Saturday June 2. The other events for May 19—Car Show and Train show—are also cancelled. However, Pingree Farms Goat Yoga classes on May 19 will still happen! If you haven’t signed up yet, do it today so you don’t miss out!
Stay tuned for updates on future events! Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to get all the latest at Pingree.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Thanks to your support, 12 Wayne County 4Hers were able to attend the 2017 Wayne County fair! We would also like to thank the adult volunteers who drove students, cooked meals, did laundry, and so many other things to help these students shine at the Fair.
*Pingree Farms is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is able to offer programs to students all over the Metro Detroit area due to the generosity of many different people and organizations.

“I have been involved with Pingree Farms from the beginning and it is amazing to watch the farm grow and change over the years. The Green family has created a wonderful place that encourages teamwork and fun. Taking part in P.I.G. (Plants In the Ground) each spring has become a family event that we look forward to each year.”- Lisa
“Pingree Farms is so much fun! I was surprised to find out that there was a real farm in the city. I loved all the animals, especially the miniature cows. We fed them bread and their tongues are really long! The chicken smell pretty bad but they are fun to watch and I got to get an egg from a nest. The pigs are huge and kind of loud. The best part was when Cowboy Will let me take a turn riding a horse! I can’t wait to go back!”- Mia
“With all the problems in Detroit it is wonderful to see some people looking for solutions. Pingree Farms is working with schools, 4-H groups and other local organizations to bring opportunities to students from the city and the surrounding communities. Students can come and learn about how to work together, problem solve, take care of animals, plant and harvest food and so much more. I think what these people have done is incredible and I look forward to working with them more.”- Richard
