February Updates

It might be the dead of winter, but to us ACF organizers, it seems like spring is just around the corner! We have a few brief updates on this dreary February day.

First, we now have our first order of seeds! Thanks to Owen Bridge at Annapolis Seeds and input from those we hope to grow for in the coming season, we’ve been able to do some preliminary garden planning and place our first order.  With an anticipated seed start date in mid-march, it seems like we’re on track for an early start to a new season!

Second, the numbers are in from last Saturday’s Fundraiser – we made over $900! We owe a big thanks to Ruth Minnikin, Adam Bazinet, Heather Kelday, the Old Orchard Inn, the Acadia Environmental Society and all of those who came out on a busy Saturday night for making the show a success (photos by Tyler Boucher).

Third, as you may have seen at our last few events, we now have Acadia Community Farm t-shirts! Featuring artwork from Hillary Barter and my sister (featured below), these t-shirts are a must-have!

And as always, if you’re interested in a plot at the farm this coming season, or if you’d like a t-shirt, or if you just want to tell us how excited you are about vegetables, let us know! The address is info@acadiafarm.org.
