Carving out a garden bed with a fork and shovel, planting a bed of tomatoes, turning the compost pile, constructing a beehive roof, watering the seedlings, checking on the worms, and feeding the rabbit are just a short list of what might be done on this day to make a beautiful, productive, and ultimately compelling space to promote the Genesis Gardens vision.
The mini-farm will have 120 fruit trees, 120 chickens, 12 community garden beds, and over 2000 square feet of organic vegetable production. Most of the work at the Village Mini-Farm will be construction for the next few months but we’ll eventually be getting 80% of all our food harvests out of this space.
First Fruits Brunch Team
The First Fruits team will be taking from the bounty of our harvests and combining it with their gifts and love to share a meal with their hungry and needy brothers and sisters.
Harvesting & Prep Team
We are looking for volunteers (individuals or groups) to work with a seasoned gardener to harvest, pluck, pack, trim, and wash the farm veggies that will be delivered to Community First! residents. We are putting together this team NOW! Email us if interested!
(Good) Food Distribution Team
The Genesis Gardens Food Distribution team will be doing a very simple act- getting the best food on earth into the hands of those who can least afford it. But they are doing it with an open heart and willing ear to engage those living in our Community First! program. There is nothing more traditional than to share some of your backyard honey, or a bag of freshly picked veggies with a neighbor. That’s the spirit of Genesis Gardens. Sound like you? Email us for more info.
