With the generous donations that we received this summer we have now be able to complete what we set forth to do.
Irrigation System - Our system was completed and a timing box added to it.
Market Stand - We built the stand and sold produce that we had grown.
Washing Station - With it's construction complete we are now set for cleaning and prepping the produce on site.
Coolers - Instead of purchasing coolers we built a CoolBot. This turns almost any brand of off-the-shelf, window-type air conditioning unit into a turbo-charged cooling machine. It transforms an insulated room into a walk-in cooler to keep vegetables fresh and thermostatically controlled. The CoolBot will not only save us on installation and repair costs, it will also save electricity, reducing our operating costs when combined with our Energy Star air conditioning unit. Also the SIP panels used to construct the CoolBot were donated by the SIP corporation to Eighth Day Farm. We are very grateful.
Soil - Lastly we have been able to purchase the needed elements to enrich and add to our compost for such a large area.
Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.
