Horn Farm Happenings – March 27, 2020

A Verse for Our Time

We must eradicate from the soul
All fear and terror of what comes towards man out of the future.

We must acquire serenity
In all feelings and sensations about the future.

We must look forward with absolute equanimity
To everything that may come.

And we must think only that whatever comes
Is given to us by a world-directive full of wisdom.

It is part of what we must learn in this age,
namely, to live out of pure trust,
Without any security in existence.

Trust in the ever present help
Of the spiritual world.

Truly, nothing else will do
If our courage is not to fail us.

And let us seek the awakening from within ourselves
Every morning and every evening.

– Rudolf Steiner

There’s a lot of uncertainty right now, but there’s also a lot of opportunity for us to rethink the way we’ve been meeting our basic needs. Those of us who can will have to grow more food to share with our community.

community-gardens 2019That’s why the community gardens here at the farm will remain open, and 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 next few days 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 more varieties of plants 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. For chicken and other meats Mirror Image Farms has pick up locations in Millersville, Bainbridge, and Lancaster.

We’ve jumped into offering some of our classes and workshops online! We rescheduled the following:

On April 1 & 3 we are offering a two-part class called Exploring the Inner Landscape.

You Shall Have Homes N.C. Wyeth 1928

Just as we are in relationship with the land, trees, water, and wildlife, we are also influenced by, and can be in relationship with, the archetypal energies of the planets and constellations of the zodiac. Interestingly, the inner and outer landscapes are mysteriously intertwined so that what is happening on the inside is mirrored on the outside. In this time of great political and environmental turmoil it might seem counterintuitive that by focusing on our inner lives we might have a greater effect on the world around us. Exploring the Inner Landscape.

On April 4 there are still a few spots left in Green Mulch: Using Native Plants as Groundcover.

And on April 18 you can learn about Garden Design for Water Management.

Though we can’t meet at the farm for now, please reach out to us via email, phone, Facebook, or Instagram
