What a busy summer at the farm! After a rough spring, the farm is now starting to give up some produce. Sixty eight pounds of lettuce went to Second Harvest two weeks ago and the first 9 lbs of peas was delivered on Tuesday with many more peas to pick and deliver this week. Thanks to Greenthumb Nursery and Jean Oglesbee, in the last three weeks we have transplanted at least 400 plants; bring on the sun!
Thanks to Lowes employees for their wonderful help Monday at the garden. In addition to their help, the equipment they brought is going to serve the farm so well! A new tiller, lawn mower, weed wacker, and walk behind brush trimmer, pain, composite decking and lumber are now happily residing at the garden and ready to get dirty!
The Kiwanis members continue to do a wonderful job watering the field. Thank you so much!
Summer school students have aided in weed control, planted their own raised bed and are soon to help in the control of our potato bugs with chicken! Jeff Boyd is a wonderfully innovative teacher and the kids are lucky to have him!
We are planning two community work day at the garden in August. Set aside Wednesday Aug. 10th from 5pm to 8pm and Saturday Aug. 20th from 9am to noon to come help out!
See you at the farm!
