Tilled up and ready to go!

I'm excited to say that we are almost ready to plant!

Over the past few days, we've been removing more bricks, discing and tilling the ground. All 9 of the quarter acre market garden plots are ready to plant, and we broke ground on the community garden space this morning.

A HUGE thanks to all of the families from St. Pius X who signed up to be a part of our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program this weekend. We did not anticipate such an overwhelming response. We are looking forward to partnering with you over the growing season!

Here are a few pictures from the past few days.

I know that over the next year, we'll all be learning a lot. This picture illustrates a lesson I learned today - don't leave things (especially your New Roots for Refugees binder) in tall grass on a farm when a tractor is running or it is liable to get run over.

We will be having our "Opening Ceremonies" this Thursday at the farm at 9:30. The women will all be assigned plots to start growing and congratulated for all of the hard work that they have put in so far this year. If you are interested in attending, we'd love to have you.
