Big Things Happening at The Farm

July 17, 2019

With the summer already half way done, the Dene has been nothing but busy! Since the last time we reported the garden has really taken shape, students partook in a special Hildene event, a new gator was bought, and we have participated in quite a few of the Manchester Farmer’s Markets. 

 

When we first started this summer the garden was a jungle of weeds. Now, we have a variety of plants ranging from: Brussels Sprouts, Tomatoes, Basil, Carrots, Beets, Cabbage, Peas, and many more! 

 

Just last week, we got the opportunity to show off our hard work at a Hildene Donor Dinner. The night was quite a success for the team and we engaged in wonderful conversations about gardening and Hildene’s history. They even got to see the finished classroom, which is the new home for the Dene Farm Program. We are still waiting to move in, but it seems like the big day is just around the corner. 

 

The exciting news doesn’t stop there! After many years of borrowing vehicles, we finally bought a Gator! Transportation of wood chips and compost has never been so easy and efficient. We are all excited to cherish the Gator for many years to come. Now all that’s left is to pick a name for it! 

 

Lastly, the crew has been quite successful at the Farmer’s Market. With our new addition of seasonal transplants, we have managed to attract new customers! Our transplants include: Tomatoes, Cayenne Peppers, Basil, Sunflowers, and next week Kale! However, don’t fret, we still sell our popular Arugula and Mild Mix Microgreens. All profits made go right back into the program and pay for its continuation. Check out the stand every Thursday from 3:00 to 6:00 pm in Manchester. 

 

As always, we invite you all to visit us at the Dene Farm. The garden is so beautiful at this time of the year! If you can’t see us here, don’t worry we will be at the Farmer’s Market. Keep an eye out for some more blog posts soon!
