Down at the Farm!
It’s hard to believe July is almost over. The heat over the past month and a half has been hard on all of NW Arkansas, and we are so grateful that we still have produce. That is a true testament of our community and our hard working farm team.
We’ve come a long way this season, and we are still seeing the fruit of our community’s labor. We continue to be thankful of everyone who has made this Farm season possible.
Our Amazing Community
Thanks to everyone that joined us the past couple of weeks at The Farm for maintenance and harvesting.
We are especially thankful for Fellowship Bible Church College Ministry who have brought students out every week, despite the heat and drought. They continue to accomplish so much for us and have had fun in the process.
We loved having student Farmers from Owl Creek out to the Farm last week. They helped harvest potatoes, tomatoes, and other produce. We had around 60 students participate in learning about The Farm, and they were hard workers as well!
We are also thankful for the group from Harbor Church in Springdale who came out this weekend. They harvested tomatoes, peppers, and watermelon.
While we have taken a hit from the heat and lack of rain, we are still producing at The Farm. The corn has had a hard time growing, along with the Sunflowers and lettuces. Recently we have harvested okra, potatoes, onions, watermelon and plenty of tomatoes.
We have harvested 8,454 pounds of produce so far this season. Of that, 5,137 pounds have gone to hunger relief and local food pantries around Northwest Arkansas such as Life Source, Samaritan Community Center, and the NW Arkansas Women’s Shelter.
Thanks again for helping “Cultivate a Community without Need”. We hope you will come and visit us down at The Farm. For more info or questions, feel free to email us at:
