Farm Advisory Group Digs in for Spring

A long awaited completed survey of the community farm was handed out to farm advisory board members on Thursday evening by Chairwoman Kris Westland. The survey provides members a path forward in planning for the future use of the property, a large portion of which is considered conservation land and not under the guise of the farm board.

White winter rye continues to grow in the main field at the farm while board members look forward to the 3,000 daffodils anticipated in three months time which will be cut and sold in town as a fundraiser. Other upcoming fundraisers include: A St. Patrick's Day Breakfast on Saturday March 17th, 10 am at the Lutheran Church and an Egg Hunt for kids on Satruday March 24th at 10 am at the Community Farm. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Community Farm.

The completion of the siding on the barn at the farm is slated for later this spring along with tenative plans to replace a septic system for the house on the property. A donated greenhouse for the farm is also on the board's radar and if all goes correctly should be in use by May.
