Farm Work Days - Mondays 6:00-8:00 pm at the garden shed.
During the summer heat, July and August, Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm and Friday mornings from 8:00 to 10:00 am.
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.
We are going to try to work at the farm tomorrow morning, 9-11:00 AM. The goal is to get the deer fence up. If it continues to rain we will have to reschedule.
Our group had a great Farm Fit workout last night. What is Farm Fit? Farm Fit is the workout you get digging, screening compost, weeding, walking back and worth with the seeder, laying tape,etc. No need for the gym on farm days.
We have now seeded flowers in the flower bed, seeded about half of the upick and row crop rows and started prepping the final row crop rows. Our seed starter group transplanted the little seedlings into bigger containers and started the hardening off process. These little guys are waiting for more consistently warm mornings before being moved into the field.
The weather forecast is predicting rain and much cooler temps for the end of the week. If we get significant rain we will not be able to work on Friday morning, I’ll send out another email Thursday evening to let you know about that
Happy Mother’s Day to all you farming mamas. We will be working at the farm this Monday, May 13th, 6-8:00 PM. This week we will be seeding in the flower bed, seeding corn in the u-pick area and prepping the last 6 rows in the row crop area.
Dry Creek Quilters will have bags available for purchase, $ 6-10 .
If you weren’t able to place your order for a Farm T Shirt last week, this Monday, 5/13 will be your last opportunity! They are perfect to wear at the farm. We have men’s, women’s (long and short sleeve) and even shirts for the kids (sizes S- 6/8-L-14/16). We are just 9 shirts shy of the reduced pricing. More information and details at the farm work party Monday.
Please join us Monday evening, 6-8:00 PM, at the farm. All Hidden Springs residents are welcome. We will be adding compost to the raspberry bed, spreading straw, weeding and harvesting rhubarb.
U-pick also starts on Monday. Invite your neighbors to come out to the farm and pick rhubarb. They will need to bring scissors or clippers and a bag. 6 stalks for $1.
Dry Creek Quilters will be selling handmade cloth tote bags. These are perfect for carrying home your rhubarb. The bags are $6-10. The purchase supports Dry Creek Historical Society, these are the people who care for the historic farmhouse located at the end of Farm Court.
The Farm Committee meets Monday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the garden shed! Please note during the summer heat, July and August, Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm and Friday mornings from 8:00 to 10:00 am.
The garden shed is located down the walking path at the intersection of 7th and Banker, or via the gravel farm road off Farm Court near the Community Barn. Ask for Linda Beasley or Sharon Halvorsen to get started.
