Volunteer Day 2/20

Some pictures from our most recent work day! We prepared more beds and seeded lettuce, broccoli and cabbage.

Also, we found this head to put on our scarecrow.

Coming up this weekend we have a volunteer day at the Community Garden and then seeding more plants to put in the Chancellor's Point greenhouse. Keep an eye out for an email this week!

UPDATED: Volunteer Day, Sunday 2/13

Come on out to help out on the farm this Sunday, February 13th at 2 PM!

We are going to cleaning out the old beds from last semester and preparing the new ones by digging them up and mixing in mushroom soil.

We would love to see you there if it's your first time on this farm or a farm ever or if you came out every day last season.

See you Sunday!
Pictures from Volunteer day!

We added a lot more to the cold frame bed and prepped a lot of beds. Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to help! We really appreciate it and would love to see you again.

Cold Frame Bed

Here are some pictures! First, of the cold frame bed we put in today (on the left). What this does is trap heat and warm up the ground and plants so we can start planting earlier. There's nothing in there yet, but will be soon. We got the windows from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

Also, here's what the farm looks like right now. It looks a little brown, but garlic is still growing. Despite being small and having a few aphids, the spinach is so sweet and delicious!!! Some of our romaine lettuce also survived through the winter under the row cover.

Everything else is pretty frost bitten and a little weedy and windblown... but so it goes in the winter. in the next few weeks we will be pulling out our fall crops and start prepping beds for spring! we'll also be starting seeds, seed catalog fortunes willing :)

The Beginnings

Here are a few pictures from the very beginning of the farm in Spring and Summer 2010. Check out the rest on our old blog,
