November Update at Garfield Community Farm

November has been a great month. In partnership with Open Hand Ministries we had around 30 volunteers working at the farm and at a local home rehabilitation project. 30 people working about 7 hours accomplishes a lot of work at the farm. We’ve been able to prepare to triple our growing space for 2010! We have a new fence up around both of the expansion sites already. With our 2010 expansion we are planning new and exciting ways to get organic and locally grown food into people hands in the Garfield neighborhood. Not only will be do our farm stand outside Penn Aiken Dairy next year, we’re also developing plans to do a real CSA – Community Supported Agriculture. Our CSA will include lower income families as well as families who buy into it at a market rate. We’re really excited about this possibility for next year. Special thanks to Public Allies and all of our Open Hand and church partners who have made our expansion possible through their volunteer labor.
