COMMUNITY: SAY "YES!"

PASTURE TO PRODUCE: A COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP

The week COVID-19 began reshaping “normal,” Chestnut Grove gave birth to our first ever “pandemic-born” fruit-bearing partnership: the Pasture to Produce project.  

 

Combining donated land, labor, and farming expertise, our partnership is slated to produce 4800-5200 lbs of calorie-rich vegetables which will supplement existing food pipelines serving our “food insecure” neighbors in the months ahead. The Pasture-to-Produce project is underway! The ground has been prepared.  All future steps including garden shaping, soil amending, seed and seedling planting, fencing, weeding, watering, and harvesting will be coordinated using SignUp Genius. 

 

Jonathan Proffitt of Restoration Produce is the lead produce consultant, designing to maximize yield on land donated by the Philkill and Bailey families.   All interested partners are welcome!  If you are willing to donate or sponsor, please contact us.

BROADUS WOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LEARNING GARDEN
 

The Learning Garden at Broadus Wood Elementary School is special. Many volunteers showed up to make it happen. After two years of hard work, the LG was ready to be gifted to the teachers and students in June of 2017. Cora and Lela with their Girl Scout troops chose the LG as their Bronze Award project. Each girl contributed an individual project along with a lot of hours towards the project as a whole. Hammered Inn Farm and Garden is one of many businesses involved in the project yet we will stay around to help for years to come. For the past two years, HIFG has provided a seeding for every student to plant at the end of the year. When the students come back from summer break, they will be able to harvest the fruit from the plants they put in a few months earlier. Teaching students the importance of growing your own food.

MY INTENT PROJECT
 

The MyIntent Project is a catalyst for meaningful conversations and positive action. The project believes there is purpose inside each of us and we want our efforts to encourage people to share more truth and inspiration with each other.
They are not a jewelry company - they are a service project.

What do you think the world needs more of?

  • Meaningful conversations, on stuff that matters to us.

  • Community, where we support each other in our journeys.

  • People living with purpose, passion

Our daughters, Lela and Cora, are watching their parents build a business centered around a better understanding of relationships with our neighbors and our natural world so what better way to raise money for their own service plans than this.
