New Arrival!




After a week away, I was greeted by a wonderful crop of young Red Fife Wheat! This same variety is planted outside of the Hungry Ghost Bakery on State St. and as part of the Little Red Hen Project, is being grown in small plots by nearly 80 farmers and residents around the valley. The wheat is an especially gratifying specimen, since its progress can be witnessed on a daily basis. It currently stands at about 4 inches, and was planted about a week and a half ago.

This week we are finishing our fourth raised bed and hope to start planting this wednesday. Come join us!
We used locally harvested white pine from a neighbor of 5 College Energy Manager, Todd Holland and recycled lumber from the Springfield ReStore.
