This turkey is thankful to be here this time of year... and just learned how to puff up with pride. He strutted around the poultry yard, wings dragging on the ground, showing off for his flock. πŸ¦ƒ

We are so grateful to have been able to expand our duck flock recently: meet our newest quacking friends, five beautifully mottled Ancona ducks πŸ¦† generously gifted to us by a local permaculture farm! They are happily settled into their new home and have made friends with our Khaki Campbells. 😊 Thank y'all so much @therubyroost for the new friends, and for inspiring us with the work you do!
.
Thank you SO much to all who donated to our classroom fundraising campaign! We successfully reached our goal and are excited for the renovations to begin in the new year! πŸ’–

We hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving full of appreciation for the abundance and love in your lives! πŸ¦ƒ

Only a few days left in our crowdfunding campaign, with a unique opportunity to double each donation made by you! A generous donor will match dollar for dollar, but first we need to meet our goal! Help us make this old dilapidated barn into a functional farm headquarters, where we will host educational programs, process for market, make our wildcrafted medicines, and more. Every little bit helps us expand the farm’s educational and productive capacity. Thank you to all who have already donated!!

Fall is here and that means it's time to plant our perennials-- these are some of the very first plantings in our Food Forest!! 🌱 We are fortunate to have so many edible trees and shrubs acquired through donations to our Food Forest project. The next few weeks we hope to plant out most of our perennials with an eye to the future, ensuring we design resilience and abundance for generations to come. ✨

Thought this egg was so beautiful, like a tiny painting. πŸ˜ŠπŸ–Ό
Our assorted flock lays a diversity of egg colors, and we love it! Sometimes some of the eggs have extra speckles... I guess the hens throw on a little extra pigment! Our chickens are artists. 🎨

Our first Food Forest guild is already looking so magical! 😍✨ This is two weeks after cover-cropping with daikon radish, canola, white & red clover, turnip, and chicory. ☘ Later this month we will be planting the guild with volunteer help ~ soon it will be an edible/medicinal plant community! πŸ“πŸŒΏπŸŒ³
.
We are successively moving our Roosters and Turkeys through our planned Food Forest area in mobile coops, so they can do most of the soil prep work for us! πŸ“πŸ¦ƒ They eat weeds and bugs and scratch up the soil for us ~ then we can come in and plant what we'd like to see growing! 🌱 πŸ’–
.
We have many plans and are so excited about this project to establish a perennial, regenerative, public Food Forest!

Thanks to the beautiful rains, our covercrops in the fields are doing just swell! 🌧 🌱 We seeded these on Thursday, look at them grow😍☘🌿🌾 These crops help block weeds, and provide biomass & fertility for our soil's ecology. ✨
