McEnroe Organic Farm, which demonstrates sustainable agriculture practices through on-farm programming for children, adults and families, will host two family-friendly events this month: a Discovery Garden Community Day from 10 a.m. to noon on June 8, and its annual Strawberry Festival from 1 to 5 p.m. on June 15.

Located on 1,200 acres in north Dutchess County, McEnroe Organic Farm produces organic and naturally raised meats, greenhouse tomatoes, seasonal produce and nursery transplants. It also produces soils and compost that are approved for organic purposes and have been used by farms, gardens, landscapers and green roofers since 1987.

During Discovery Garden Community Day, volunteers are invited to work on various garden and farm activities. At noon, the farm market will provide a free lunch for all participants. The annual Strawberry Festival will feature local vendors and musicians. It will be proceeded by a free yoga class taught by Buddhi Tribe from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. in the Discovery Garden Pavilion.

Both events are open to the public. They are sponsored and coordinated by the farm’s Education Program, which relies in part on public support to sustain these activities. To make a donation, visit Donorbox.org/mcenroe-organic-farm-education-department-fundraiser.

Cost: Free. Location: McEnroe Farm Market, 5409 Rte. 22, Millerton, NY. For more info, call 518.789.4191 or visit McEnroeOrganicFarm.com.
