Welcome Back & Welcome to the Acadia Farm!

Farm Photo 2015The Acadia Community Farm team is excited to see the return of students to Acadia University. It is our mission to provide a space for all students at Acadia University to explore and learn about food and sustainable agriculture. Please feel welcome to come down to the farm any time between sun up and sun down, and take a walk through the garden. You will notice a diversity of plants and animals down at the farm, including pheasants, ravens, various song birds, field mice and even a muskrat (much to our dismay). There are many different varieties of plants being grown at the farm, and signage will help you identify those plants. The farm is a nice place to visit, to get away from the hustle and bustle of campus and immerse yourself in nature, while soaking up some sunshine and enjoying a beautiful view of the dykelands and Cape Blomidon. If you are interested in getting involved at the farm, please email myah@acadiafarm.org for more information on how to get involved!

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! 🥬
