In the face of climate change and the current coronavirus outbreak, our work as land stewards, farmers, and gardeners is more important than ever. The fragility of the systems we depend on to meet our basic needs has been exposed. We are continuing to prioritize growing food for ourselves and our community and teaching others to do the same.
We’ve made the decision to cancel all on farm events, classes, and workshops at least until September 1. If you’re currently registered for one or more classes, please check your email for details about refunds. Horn Farm staff will continue farm operations growing seedlings for the plant sale and food for our CSA shareholders.
Since you can’t come to the farm right now, we are redesigning how we can get information to you. We are changing the location from in-person to online for some current classes–more details on these next week. Soon we’ll add more online classes and other video content to help you hone your ecological understanding, as well as your food growing and foraging skills.
This year’s plant sale will also be different. Though it’s not as much fun as shopping at the sale, we are asking you to order your plants ahead of time so that we can collate your order. We will spread pick up times across multiple days to limit the number of people who are on the farm at any one time. We are extending the online sales period through April. r https://hornfarmcenter.org/shop
We still have a few vegetable CSA shares available: https://hornfarmcenter.org/csa/
We will be packing shares rather than having open bins to minimize the risk of spreading possible infection. Horn Farm is also a pick up location for meat, egg, and mushroom shares from Rising Locust Farm.
Community garden plots will open April 15 and we still have some available: https://hornfarmcenter.org/community-gardens/.
