Winter Post

This winter has been very exciting. Our newly hired directors Robert Wetherington and Betsy Baumgarten, are breathing new life into our farm program. We are excited to offer a new farm camp summer session, new workshops, and new produce (mushrooms and flowers).
We have been gearing up the greenhouse for seed starting season. So far so good!
A successful summer has left behind lots of tomato, okra, and morning glory vines, to be cleared out and composted.

We have also been busy planning our home food production seminar series that we will be offering this year. The first of these is Shiitake mushroom log inoculation day, on February 25th. We cut the logs last week. 

Last year we inoculated 20 oak logs, and had so much fun doing it that we decided to do 80 this year! If you would like to join us, see our flyer below for more info.

All participants will receive a mushroom lunch and a Shiitake log to take home!

If you would like to support our farm and our mission, look for us at the Downtown Conway Farmer's and Crafts Market, where we will be selling our fresh vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers. Also check out our volunteer opportunities tab to see how you can get involved in our gardens and programing! 
 
 Peaceful Planting Everyone!
