Organic Disease and Pest Management

I recently went to a Summer Tea Party put on by the Just Us! Centre For Small Farms where I learned about compost tea, nutrient cycling and pest management. Here are a few information cards shared by Wild Rose Farm.

Gardening 101 Workshop

Thank You Volunteers!

Thank you so much to the volunteers who have put their hands in dirt, backs into the shovels and hearts into the plants. The farm wouldn’t be progressing as it is without your support. Plot Holders and community members have been a great addition to our volunteer team this year! Big shout out to all of you!!!

Here is a glimpse of last Wednesdays work party success! We extended the flower garden at the entrance of the farm! 

If you would like to join our volunteer team email me at erika@acadiafarm.org

Chaiti Seth will be facilitating the workshop! She is an extremely knowledgeable and practiced gardener. Topics covered will ensure someone is able to start their own garden. If you are a new or experienced gardener this will be a great workshop.

There will be refreshments provided!

Let’s hope for a nice day!!

Pumpkin Moon Farm

The Sustainable Food Systems Field Course has been learning about the importance of biodiversity and thanks to our local friends at Pumpkin Moon Farms we were able to put our learning into action!

Pumpkin Moon donated seed packets of flowers that support pollination and diversity! As you walk into the farm it will be the first plot behind the herb spiral. Keep your eyes peeled for signs of growth!

As the butterflies and bees roam around the beautiful flowers we would like to send a big thank you to Pumpkin Moon.

About

The Acadia Community Farm began in the Spring of 2008 with the vision of providing local, organic produce to the dining hall at Acadia University, while also serving as a community garden. Now entering our fourth growing season, the ACF has grown (no pun intended) to become a community centre for the exchange of knowledge surrounding gardening, food, and sustainable agriculture.
