The Farm update
It's been 2 months since our last update and we thought it was time for some pictures and info of the progress we have made. Our plans have changed a bit but we are still on schedule, by the end of the week we will have over 70 beds built (90% planted), including a recently updated and working green house with water collection from the roof. This past weekend our new members all gathered and we did the last push to remove all the toxic lumber and unused material from the lot.
The 1st change is we have started working with with a local brew master in Providence and will be growing organic 'hops' at the farm, which require building custom grow stations to hold 25' tall plants. We are not aware of any other Urban farms in Providence doing this and excited as the produce of this harvest will work nicely with the cooking classes and events we have planed for the future.
The 2nd change is to build a have a location for hens so we can get fresh eggs, along with a bee hive for honey and help with pollination of the plants both of these are big decisions as they require extra time, construction cost, and space. But we feel that the outcome of both of these decisions are important items for our small Urban Farm to be successful.
