This paper outlines the building of a farm stand and service days done for The Ranch which works with the United Cerebral Palsy of Central California. The construction of a farm stand was requested by the client because they did not have one and would like to start selling the vegetables and fruits that they grow on their property. Additionally, there was an opportunity to do other improvements around the farm and simultaneously help brothers in the fraternity get service hours. To do this set up service days were set up where miscellaneous tasks around the farm such as spreading mulch, weeding, planting vegetables, picking up and disposing of trash, and other repairs to equipment and structures. This paper will cover the phases of building the farm stand which include, planning, material procurement, and the building phase, as well as the service days. This paper will also cover some the challenges that were come across during the process, as well as lessons learned, and how this project relates to the curriculum of Construction Management. The purpose of this project was to give back to an organization that holds a lot of significance and meaning to the builder.
