At Food from the Earth, we are practicing regenerative agriculture, which can be thought of as methods of growing food which heal and restore the vitality of the farm, the surrounding ecosystem, and the local community.
Our one-acre, biointensive organic vegetable garden is inspired by the likes of John Jeavons, Alan Chadwick, and others. The bio-intensive approach maximizes yields and minimizes the exploitation of natural resources by focusing on deep soil preparation, crop rotation, cover cropping and composting. In order to manage our large garden using these techniques, we depend heavily on one of the most important renewable sources of energy: the community!
Additionally, our passive solar hoop house allows us to extend the growing season, start all of our crops from seed, and grow our own transplants.
