LEAF and Little Farmers Take Off!

Toddlers and their guardians water the youth garden.

The opening of the season in April also means that our youth programs started as well! This year LEAF and Little Farmers are starting the season looking for signs of spring all over the farm. Little Farmers focused on seeds, talking about how plants start from a seed and then end up producing their own seeds. They also explored how different plants produce different looking seeds. Participants made seed balls and planted flowers in pots to grow at home.

Out like a lamb?

As you may have noticed, our seasons haven’t been like “normal” lately. We knew it for sure when we broke an all-time heat record in mid-February, but even the tried and true “in like a lion and out like a lamb” didn’t really apply in March. The late snows are hard for the farm—we have tons of beautiful little seedlings ready to get planted in the ground!

Here’s what’s happening on the farm this time of the year:

Greetings from the Greenhouse

It's February and things are cold here on the farm. The cold keeps us indoors at this time of the year, and has a lot of folks wondering what farmers actually DO all winter. So, let us catch you up on what happens on the farm during the winter months.
