COMMUNITY: SAY "YES!"

PASTURE TO PRODUCE: A COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP

When 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. 

 

We are now sustaining our fields for the 2022 season. If you are willing to donate or sponsor, please contact us.

BROADUS WOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LEARNING GARDEN
BROADUS WOOD 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.
