Apples and Compost

Back_Yard_Chickens-300x199Happy February!

We’ve been busy as house mice getting ready for another splendid season. We’ll be pressing onion seeds into potting soil in 22 days!

And we’ve got two exciting announcements to share with our farm community:

1. Gardening and Landscaping Discount: Russ Henry, compost extraordinaire of Giving Tree Gardens, is graciously offering a discount on gardening/landscaping services to members of urban CSAs. Another reason to join our CSA! 

IMG_33382. Free Apple Trees: We’re dipping our toes into the world of fruit farming. In order to learn the basics of orcharding, we will be experimenting with grafting some baby apple saplings this spring. These tiny trees will need a safe place to live while they grow and develop in the next few years, and that’s where you come in. If you have a yard with 20-50 square feet of open space with decent sunlight, and would like to host a miniature apple nursery for two years, please let us know. As a token of thanks for hosting several of our little trees, you’ll be free to choose 1-3 trees to keep on your property and let grow to maturity. Help us learn to grow fruit and receive a tiny orchard of your own! Simply send an email our way to find out more about this project.
