The farm is not open yet. It will be a fun place to learn about growing food, cultivating good soil through composting, ground water, pollination, aquaponics, green houses, and petting zoo. We will also teach about our communities connection to agriculture. We will of course feature a corn maze and pumpkin patch in the fall season and have other fun attractions such as a hay ride and fun planting and fruit and vegetable picking activities.
This is our first green house. Green houses allow you to extend the growing season as well as get an early start. They allow you to do this by controlling the environment. We will share all the important things to remember when constructing your green house as well as best practices
