We hope you are making plans for growing more of your own food this season! If you don’t have space at home, there are still 10 plots left in the Horn Farm Community Gardens. The season opened on Wednesday, and plenty of folks are already hard at work cultivating their plots.
In these rapidly changing times, we all need to grow more of our own food (and to support our local farmers!) That’s why we know that changing the plant sale so that you can still get the plants you need is important. We won’t be holding the plant sale the way we have in previous years. This year all sales will happen online before the sale. You can order now through Sunday, April 25. We will spend the days following the 25th packing your orders and will have them ready for pick up on Thursday, April 30 and Friday, May 1. We’ll be organizing the pick up times by last name. More details to come. We will reopen the store the first week of May if we have plants left to sell.
We added a few native trees and shrubs to the store this week, so even if you already placed an order, you might want to check back in.
We still have a few vegetable CSA shares available: https://hornfarmcenter.org/csa/
Horn Farm is also a pick up location for meat, egg, and mushroom shares from Rising Locust Farm. Rising Locust also has pickup locations in Manheim and Lancaster.
For chicken and other meats Mirror Image Farms has pick up locations in Millersville, Bainbridge, and Lancaster.
Currently, we have one more online class scheduled, and we are working on offering you more. If there are any topics in particular that you would like to see, please let us know!! On April 18 you can learn about Garden Design for Water Management remotely via Zoom.
