March 24th Planting Party Seedlings – June 2nd Growth

It has been over two months since the Fork and Farm club in conjunction with the Acadia Community Farm hosted their annual spring planting party and the seeds have since germinated, sprouted and grown into healthy young plants! Our volunteers helped plant well over a hundred tomatoes, peppers and onions for the Acadia Community Farm which we can all watch grow thanks to our good friend the internet. From seed to veggie, here is where photos will be posted as the seasons progresses and we watch who’s plant produces the most!

The Acadia Community Farm began in the spring of 2008 with the vision of providing local, organic produce to the dining hall at Acadia University, while also serving as a community garden. The Farm has grown to become an educational community centre for the exchange of knowledge surrounding gardening, food, and sustainable agriculture. Explore the site to find out more or stop by the Farm for a visit!

Soon these flowers will be delicious fruit 🍓🍎. . Our strawberry patch is a newer addition to the farm. A big thank you to Sadie for her donation allowing us to purchase strawberry plants to fill five beds!
Just picked up some composted manure for bed prep and transplanting next week! This gardeners gold was sourced from Sutton Hill Stables just down the road! As usual Anna our farm dog🐕 is supervising to make sure we get the job done right.

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! 🥬
