July Update

Admittedly, we’re behind in what you might call a “traditional” planting schedule – but who needs that kind of tradition anyway! The community garden is a vibrant looking plot of tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, lettuce, broccoli and peppers nowadays – we’re still in the process of preparing more land for late-summer plantings, but that hasn’t stopped us from getting some healthy looking plants in the ground. We’d still love to have you come down to the garden and stake out a plot, it’s not too late to plant fall crops of peas, beans, greens, maybe more!

We’re also planning to convene a meeting in the coming weeks where we can talk about a little more than the ups and downs of the planting season – by bringing together folks from all backgrounds in the Wolfville community, we’re looking to make the farm and garden as sustainable as possible throughout this growing season and the seasons to come. If you’d like to chime in with suggestions on how the garden can develop into a full-fledged community driven institution, we’d love to have your input. Either electronically (alex @ acadiafarm.org) or in person at the garden.

If you’d like to set up a specific time to meet up at the garden so you can share some of our tools, don’t hesitate to email or call. Thanks.
