Farm Work Days - Mondays 6:00-8:00 pm
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.
What a wild night! The harvest was great, lots of green beans, lettuce, chard, kale, cucumbers, beets, squash and tomatoes. We will be working on Friday morning, 8-10:00 AM.
Raspberry upick starts on Monday the 31st.
Enjoy those veggies!
July 2018 marks the half way point in our third HSCF season. Thanks to all of you who are making our farm such a success! It’s time to start thinking about what we like about the current season and what we would like to do differently next year. Please send your thoughts to the farm committee via firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are wondering about how things are decided at the farm, here’s the short version. We have a farm committee made up of people who have worked at least one season at the farm and volunteered to take on leadership for a significant farm task, see attached. These people vote when a decision is needed, they also plan what and where to plant for the following year. Our decision making process, budget and all other important farm documents are stored in the white binder on the shelf inside the closet at the farm shed. You are welcome to review these anytime.
We will be working at the farm tomorrow evening, Monday 6/18, 6-8:00 PM. This rain should loosen the soil and create perfect conditions for weeding. We will also be harvesting greens and peas and possibly doing a second planting of squash, beans, cucumbers and adding okra. Remember to “phone a friend” to pick up your harvest if you are not able to be at the farm on Monday evening. This has to be arranged in advance, we do not have a way to store shares at the farm.
Rhubarb and herbs are self harvest, this means that you harvest these crops yourself. We have a great selection of perennial herbs, take a look next time you are at the farm.
Rhubarb and pea upick continues, 6 stems of rhubarb for $1, 1 qt of peas for $1.
The 2018 Hidden Springs Community Farm Season officially kicks-off on Monday, March 12th at 6:00 PM. Meet at the farm shed.
All Hidden Springs residents are welcome at the Farm. Residents work together to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers! Work a day at the farm and receive a share of the produce harvested.
During the 2018 Season, the group will be working on Monday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
The Farm Committee meets the first Tuesday of every month from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Community Clubhouse.
