Getting It Done In 2014!

Posted 5/19/2014 3:50pm by Jeri Villarreal.

Our City Farm has continued to grow and strive to achieve new things each year. However, every year, it seems that we leave behind an ever-growing list of unfinished projects. The CSA takes so much time, work and planning that our necessary infrastructure projects tend to take a backseat. So, this year, we have drastically reduced the number of CSA shares so that we can focus on tackling "the list".

You know that rewarding feeling when you check off the items of your "To Do List"? Well I thought I'd share our Farm Project List with you all so that we can check in and let you know where we stand with getting items checked off.

Farm Project List 2014

  • Prep and Plant Heritage Grain Phase 1 of 3 Areas (End of May 2014)
  • Install Edible Landscaping, Farm Exterior (June 2014)
  • Build Out Chicken Yard and Chicken Coop (Mid- June 2014)
  • Construct on-site compost bin system (End of June 2014)
  • Install drip irrigation (July 2014)
  • Finish Greenhouse Setup (July 2014)
  • Set Up Hydroponic Systems (Mid-July 2014)
  • Install Phase 1 Solar Power Systems for Greenhouse (July 2014)
  • Install Permanent External Fencing (End of July 2014)
  • Install 3 additional 50 foot perennial berms/raised beds (End of July 2014)
  • Install 3 new bee hives (empty) at main farm (September 2014)

We'll check in by mid-June with our progress and again at the beginning of July with all the work we've (hopefully) accomplished.  To help us tackle this important and huge list of items, we are hiring a part-time Temporary Farmhand, if interested,  apply here!

By Fall 2014, Our City Farm will be quite a sight to see and we will be inviting everyone out to the farm to celebrate!
