Fall at The Farm
Wow! It is hard to believe we are half way through October. We are so thankful for such a great continuing Fall Harvest. We are looking forward to some more yummy Fall produce. Once most of the Fall crops have been planted and harvested we will plant our cover crop, winter wheat while we prepare for next year.
Once again we want to thank each individual for making this year possible. As you know, this year was a difficult one for us, and we are forever grateful for the continued support. As we begin to wind down the season, we will still have opportunities to volunteer.
Our Amazing Community
We are super thankful for everyone that joined us the past few weeks at The Farm for Harvest, planting, and maintenance.
We are especially thankful for the Upward Bound group who brought 10 students out to The Farm last weekend. The helped harvest and process for the upcoming distribution. They accomplished so much for us and truly moved the needle on our work to date at The Farm.
The students also collected eggs, and helped process them as well.
We are also excited about our project with the Marketing for Nonprofit’s Class at the University of Arkansas. We have loved getting to know these students, and hear their thoughts on ways to improve The Farm.
The Fall harvest has been great, and we are still harvesting broccoli, cabbage, radishes, spinach, and bak choy!
This week, we will harvest sugar snap peas and turnips!
Currently to date, we have harvested 12,440 pounds with 7,087 pounds going to Hunger Relief efforts. We continue to collect TONS of eggs as part of our Poultry Project. We are so humbled by the ways our community engages with those in need. As we begin to plan for 2013, we will keep you posted on new events, opportunities and ways to help “cultivate a community without need.”
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:
