Seed them cold weather crops!

Like someone who is leaving a party half-heartedly, winter is taking its time with a long good-bye. So we were lucky to have a nice warm day today to keep things moving at the farm: more cold-weather crop seeds in the ground, more organizing the space for easier access, protecting the young Persimmon and Asian Pear trees, sheet-mulching in spaces that were eroded, and planning, and chatting.

A cute little neighbor came by with his grandma to say Hello, and provided a report on his first visit to the barber shop. He is the same age as our young farm, and we can’ t believe he’s ready to go to day-care.

What began as an overgrown, abandoned lot is now a thriving urban oasis, a place where people can come relax, enjoy nature, and help out.

Volunteers learn about rainwater conservation, waste management, and other eco-friendly urban farming methods, all while getting to know their neighbors and having fun!
