As we endeavor to provide food for our community that is nourishing and local, explicitly connected to the land and the seasons, and that builds soil for a resilient, perennial agriculture, we need the diverse support of many eaters. Only together can we move into the future with faith and wholeness.
The most basic way we can use your support is through a season-long investment in our farm, in the form of a CSA share. This is the way you tell the farmers, “we need your work,” which is as valuable to us as the money you invest.
If you want to lend your labor to the farm, there are a number of ways you can do that. We’ll keep a ‘work day list’ of people who express interest in lending a hand a few times a season. If you’re interested in working really regularly, in exchange for vegetables, learning, money, or some combination of those things, contact us!
In March 2018 we participated in the Winneshiek Idea House, in which community members pledged support for the farm in terms of sponsorships of the hazelnut, chestnut, and hickory-pecan trees we’re planting this year. Even if you missed the event, you can still sponsor a tree for $20, as a gift to the future of this place.
