Farm Meetings & Work Days

Farm Work Days - Mondays 6:00-8:00 pm

 

The Farm

We are residents of Hidden Springs planning for the agricultural areas in the community. Our focus for 2016 is on row crops, perennials, pumpkin patch, and a corn maze. We want to bring back the vitality, production, and sustainable features of the agriculture that allowed this community to exist and thrive. The farm draws people to our community. It is a source of pride and sets Hidden Springs apart from other developments, it is a place of wonder for our children, a space for nature and people to coexist harmoniously.

The Compost Station is open for the 2018 season
Thursday, February 22, 2018
The HS Community Farm compost station is open for the 2018 season.  We would love to have your egg shells, coffee grounds and vegetable scraps to add to our farm compost.  The compost station is located across from the farm shed.  We need a good combination of brown and green plant matter, plus some moisture to keep the good bacteria humming.   Please deposit your contributions in the posted area.  Do not add them directly to the compost pile as we need to manage the addition of appropriate amounts of “browns” and “greens”.  Good Add-ins are listed below:
 
Browns:
  • Shredded newspaper,  no color pages please
  • wood chips and 
  • dry leaves are ideal 
Greens:
  • Kitchen Waste, no fats or animal products (egg shells are okay) 
  • Grass Clippings (if clean free from pesticides and weed killers).
  • Egg Shells
  • Coffee Grounds-no decaf please
Avoid:
  • meat, 
  • fish 
  • dairy 
 
Particularly Avoid:
  • Weeds with blossoms or seed heads
  • Weeds like Pig Weed, Goat Heads, Morning Glory, Thistle, Dandelion
