Water, Water, Everywhere!!

That is right, the Acadia Community Farm has gotten water officially hooked up today. With no sign of rain in the near future this news could not have fallen on drier and happier ears. Not only has water been hooked up but planting has started. Seven on of the twenty rows have been planted. Today the farm got Beets, Kohlrabi, Swiss Chard, Kale, Cabbage, Bush Beans, Pak Cho, Fennel, Turnip and Rutabaga. This means that Wednesdays Work Party will be filled with you guessed it, PLANTING!!!

This weekend is going to be an exciting one as the New Farmers Gathering is on.

This year’s New Farmers Gathering is not just for “new farmers”, it is for anyone who is interested in back yard gardening, small scale sustainable agriculture, or just want to know where their food comes from. It is a great opportunity to have fun and share information. This amazing workshop is on June 16 and 17 (this Saturday and Sunday) located at the Lorax Woodlands in Black River.

The weekend after we will be holding our first workshop! June 23rd from 1 to 4 at the farm.

The next few weeks at the farm are looking great!

Happy Gardening Everyone!!

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! 🥬
