|Evolution at the Farm|
“With a successful growing season behind us, we look forward to continuing our commitment to the local food economy, most notably through outreach and education. We want the community to come to the farm not only to purchase at the farm stand but to engage with the land and take that knowledge back home with them. We want to inspire a movement of composting, homegrown food, and self- sufficiency and are here to provide guidance and support through the process.”
Thank you to all the people who visited, volunteered, and bought from the stand in 2019 – you help make what we do possible!!

planted fruit trees and berry bushes, donated from friends and local businesses
painted and beautified the summer kitchen and farmstand with the help of dedicated
sowed and harvested loads of produce, flowers, and honey for sale at the farm stand
expanded our food scrap collection, keeping thousands of pounds of reusable energy from entering the landfill, while creating delicious rich humus for our plants using vermiculture
hosted hundreds of volunteers- they came to us as corporate outings, school groups, church groups, and families and individuals
offered educational events relating to food health and sovereignty, farming from soil and seeding to transplanting and harvesting, composting and food scrap collection and vermiculture, planting and growing flowers, preparing garden beds and using slow tools
hosted community gatherings in the spring, fall, and summer while also offering organic seedlings to the community via our first plant sale
met hundreds of you at the farm stand and shared stories of our love for food, plants, the environment, and cooking
loved every minute!
