farm community






Farming is by nature an organic process
and you are constantly reminded
of your place in the universe.
This years crop has been bombarded by
mother nature and her friends
- from the blight to the deer, our organic
tomato crop has suffered
yet still managed to thrive
and bear some fruit.

and while this years crop is no where
near what we hoped or expected
but we are all grateful for
what it has provided -




... a strong and vibrant farm community
- people that started the summer as
strangers are now friends whose
lives are intertwined by our farm experiences.
.......planting
............weeding
.................watering,
.....................engineering
...........................cooking and eating
.................................exchanging life stories
.........................................harvesting
and enjoying what nature does have to offer.


... delicious tomatoes
grown with out nasty harmful chemicals
hand planted and nurtured by caring people


.. the opportunity to spend time
outdoors breathing the delightful summer and
fall air, and to get out the city and into nature.
The trees, the grass, the wildflowers.
Thank you mother nature.




... the chance to learn new skills
and apply old ones to new projects.




... the accidental garden
- where pumpkins, squash & tomatoes
grew from composted materials
without any intent from humans
- yet again proving
that mother nature has her own plans
regardless of our intent!







...the amazing people that gave their time and energy to this project

  2. Hello,
    I have been interested in organic farming for a while now; however, most of the places I have found were too far away and imposable to get to with the limited money I have. Is there anywhere where I can contact you directly?
