Farm Fact: Reuse

Farm Fact: Reuse is the core of our farming practice. The raised beds are made from raw materials reclaimed from our community. Think creatively when planning your farm or garden. What is in your community? A brewery (for hops/yeast)? A saw mill, or woodworkers business (sawdust)? Tree trimmers (wood chips)? Big box stores (for cardboard)? Think about what normally goes in the dump and see what you can use. Scheduling a pick up time with local businesses lets them stay on task, and allows you to be a help rather than a hindrance.
