Visit to an Urban Farm

Fairview Gardens Farm (click to enlarge)

I visited Fairview Gardens this morning. I took a tour of the Farm and got a few pictures and interviews with several people on the management team who run the farm.  I have wonderful interviews, pictures and information to share about the farm and it's Community Supported Agriculture program.  I'll be posting podcasts, pictures and photos in the next few days.

For our readers in SoCal it's a great chance to learn about the Center for Urban Agriculture and this valuable food and farming resource in our area.

For our friends in northern climes, especially in PEI, it's a way to pass some time during the season when your farm sleeps and look in on a working farm that operates year 'round. I learned a few things that I'm really excited to pass along to you.

So keep checking in this week, or subscribe to the blog so you don't miss anything!

Hi John, thanks for introducing yourself on my blog! I'm enjoying looking around yours. Good luck with the move. I used to live in Nova Scotia and loved it there.

Hi Knatolee,

Thanks for stopping in! Yes, this year is going to be full of action and insanity. I haven't ever done a cross country move...
