When I first dreamed of starting our farm in the city, I had many ideas of EXACTLY what I wanted that farm to look like and be. I wanted raised beds, an outdoor classroom, composting area, greenhouse, chicken grazing yard, fruit trees and beehives. In 2014, it seems like we are well on our way! The greenhouse, while 99% complete, is only in need of a strip of plastic and the heating system installed before it's complete! The chicken yard should be completed in April and while our hives may not have bees this year, I will make sure that that they are constructed and ready to go for next year.
Something that I never dreamed of, was growing grains on a "large-scale". With our new 3/4 acre lot, we will be growing heirloom grains and beans just three blocks down from our main Delmar Blvd location. We hope this expansion will add interest and color to the neighborhood. We hope to offer fresh milled flour this fall at the local markets and stores. In 2015, our goal is to add our heirloom grains to our CSA share offering!
There is so much to look forward to in 2014! Signup is open for the the 2014 Summer CSA
