"Community Shares"

Sewing Seeds

"Community Shares"

The seeds have arrived. Brevard High School has graciously offered to share greenhouse space with us. BHS students will be handling and growing starts as an educational project. We hope to invite students on a field trip at the farm this spring to get more hands on experience at the farm. We are happy to be receiving registration forms in the mail as the plants begin to grow!

Starting Up!

"Community Shares"

Shelley Heath, Suzy Matthey, and I have been meeting every Wednesday crunching numbers, exchanging ideas, asking for input, on how to bring the Richland Creek CSA back to life. We have been in the process of creating a long-term, sustainable plan to develop the farm into a thriving community.

This season we plan to offer fifty full shares at $600 a share, $325 a half share. Our season will run bountiful 21 weeks! We will include farm days, recipes, newsletters, and volunteer opportunities. As we grow we will integrate pasture poultry, bees, beef, workshops, classes, and field trip opportunities for our county's students. Please join us in making this dream happen!
