It has been a fun, hard-working, educational and expensive summer. Our tractor spent the latter part of the summer in the hospital having transmission surgery, but I am happy to report it has made a full recovery! Here are some of the activities from the garden this summer.
One of the good things about winter is that most foliage and greenery goes dormant or dies, and you get to start with a fresh clean slate for spring. It’s a chance for new beginnings in the garden as you plow under your winter rye cover crop and rotate your stock from the previous year
If the Ada Street Farm is the heart of Feed Fannin, then our volunteers are its soul. Feed Fannin began eight years ago with one simple vision—to grow vegetables to help feed the hungry in Fannin County.
Feed Fannin believes that the love of gardening and eating healthy, garden grown foods is something that should be passed on from generation to generation. That’s why we support youth garden programs in our schools.
For Feed Fannin volunteers, the garden is the heart and soul of our organization. In 2009, when Barbara Ferer had a vision of Feed Fannin, she gathered some friends, they found some land and they started to grow food to feed the hungry.
