Market Garden I
We will be constructing a 1.5 acre French-style parterre market garden that will provide food for the farm and for our customers. We will be constructing two high tunnels for season extension, perimeter hedgerow, creating access paths, planting beds, trellis, an emergency water storage and irrigation system, pallet shed for storing tools, gates, and cold frames. Wherever possible, we will utilize materials sourced here on our farm and from the community waste stream.
Your gift does double duty – it helps defray the cost of supplies and materials but it also provides scholarships for students who are interested in a hands-on learning experience. We will begin with a thorough review of the 1.5 acre site plan design and explain the rationale behind planting patterns and plant choices.
After the initial installation, the Market Garden I project will provide ongoing education and demonstration.
GREAT NEWS! We have been awarded a grant to cover most of the cost of our first high tunnel!
