This weekend we had our first workshop at the ‘Front Porch Store‘ and I was surprised about the questions I received in the Q&A session!
In this week’s vlog, I answer frequently asked questions we get asked about Fruit Hill Farm, LLC.
* How long have we been in business?
* What exactly is our garden maintenance program?
* What market need are we meeting?
As I look around there is a far bigger need for healers, than people who do the sacred work.
In today’s video, I quickly discuss areas that I believe western medicine has done incredible work and areas I believe we need to partner with our integrative health counterparts.
On the homestead this weekend, I am taking inventory and updating our larder. In this video I share:
* Why it is important to establish a larder in your home
* A 90 day shopping list that will feed your family -AND- establish the foundation for your household food stores
* A shopping guide and considerations for ongoing quarterly larder maintenance
Did you know that every year we import 1.5 billion dollars of food to the Spokane area? Meanwhile we only spend 4.2 million dollars a year on food locally grown! At Fruit Hill Farm, LLC we are working to reverse that trend.
We recently submitted an application to the NASDA 2019 Women Farm to Food Business Competition. Please take two and a half minutes and see how we are trying to change how we buy food in our region.
Last week we had our quarterly staff/board meeting. In this video, I will share what we are up to and what we have planned for 2019!
How do we get children to LOVE eating healthy food?
Get the them out into the garden, helping grow their own food!
Not only are there health benefits to eating fresh fruits and vegetables, but it teaches our children where their food comes from and how it’s grown. Having children take an active role in growing and harvesting, teaches responsibility. It also increases their environmental awareness…perhaps even sparking a love affair with the natural world!
At Fruit Hill Farm, we are excited to announce that coming in the Spring 2019, we will be hosting Saturday workshops the entire month of May. These workshop will specifically designed to introduce children to the love of gardening.
The age old gardener debate to buy seeds and start your own plants, or buy seedlings?
The seed catalog season is just around the corner, and we anxiously for those first catalogs to arrive in the mail like children on Christmas morning. Certain plants like tomatoes need to be started well ahead of the last frost date, and a lot goes into sprouting those tiny seeds. Not only do you need seeds but also, potting soil, containers, nutrients, light, warmth, and regular care. Money, time, and space are some of the first things to consider when starting your seeds.
The correct answer is what fits your lifestyle and schedule!
Do you start your own seeds, why or why not?
