March Updates – Community Gardener Meeting plus Seeds are now growing!

Despite the fresh snow on the ground, we are still thinking about farm-ish things. exciting farm-ish things.

For those of you who aren’t on the email list, or as a reminder to those of you who are, MEETING SUNDAY AT 2pm, at the KCIC!

We’ve heard from lots of people interested in having their own community garden plot this summer, but there are still spaces available, so if you or someone you know are looking for a space to plant some veggies, send us an email! A single plot (10ft x 10ft) will cost $15 for the season, and a double (provided there is space) will cost $20. However, cost should not be a deterrent, so if you can’t pay the fee, email us anyway!

For those who ARE interested in tending their own plot over the summer, there will be a brief meeting for all community gardeners next Sunday, March 28th, at 2:00pm at the KC Irving Centre, Acadia University. We will be going over the details/process of getting a plot, as well as discussing the role of community gardeners (plot and volunteer responsibilities, for example). Individual plots will not be confirmed until these contracts have been signed, so please attend if you are able! It will be a great opportunity to meet the people you’ll be gardening with this summer. There will be a second round of seeding to follow the meeting (at approximately 2:30), so feel free to stick around to help us plant some seeds! If you are unable to attend the meeting, but still want a plot, just let us know, and we will try to have a second meeting another time for folks who couldn’t come to the first one. Also, if you’re not interested in a plot, but want to come plant some seeds, meet us at the KCIC at 2:30 for some planting fun! As always, dress to get dirty!

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with us! Just send an email to info@acadiafarm.org.

Hope to see you all soon,

Heather, Dewey, Tyler, and Brynne, your garden coordinators

Farm delivery! 👩🏻‍🌾 You may see our farm coordinator biking around Wolfville this summer and fall with a trailer full of produce. Yesterday it was used to transport our seedlings 🌱 from the K.C. Irving Center greenhouse down to the farm. See if you can spot our garden coordinator biking delicious veggie up to Wheelock Dining Hall this fall 🍂 🚴🏻‍♀️
We’ve been lucky with two good days of weather in a row. Fingers crossed for another one tomorrow! Today we rotated our compost piles and set up two new compost bins. These were graciously donated to the farm by Environmental Sustainability students Chelsey and Daniella! The soil is just dry enough to start planting out some of our seedlings. Today we transplanted swiss chard, cabbage, and kale! 🥬
Happy Sunday! It looks like we have some sunshine this coming week 🌤. This means our cabbage, kale and swiss chard will finally be transplanted into the garden! 🥬
