We Did It--We All Did It!
Last week we arrived at an agreement with TROSA to purchase the 1/2 acre lot sometime later this month. The cost of the land is the single biggest hurdle that aspiring farmers face (urban or rural) and the head start your generous contributions gave us is remarkable.
Each year we take six weeks in the winter to develop, enhance, and strengthen our cooperative and its impact in the Triangle. It's been a special treat for us to begin the visioning, business planning, and studying other great models to insure this urban farm is self-supporting and working with others toward the realization of food justice here, there, and everywhere!
We've also been deepening connections in NECD with neighbors, organizations, and other partners in the work likeSEEDS,Good Work,F4DC, and many others. We’ve begun our first compost piles, gotten our first few deliveries of wood chips for paths. Most importantly we've been able to begin talking with our neighbors with confidence about the great potential for this site to be a living, perpetual community resource for years to come.
Really, we're so thankful, gracious, and appreciative of the community support we've received--and we're not going anywhere, so please do check in with us in the coming months!
