Extending Our Roots

Hello Everyone,

Harvesting time is almost here, and Fresh Roots has been quite busy preparing for yet another great season. Over the past month we've added fresh soil to the garden, created beds and planted the first seeds of the season. Here are some pictures that show the transformation of the farm over the past month.














And after all of the fun tilling, raking, and sweating... We finally have our first crops of the season. Currently we have lots of fabulous greens including swiss chard, arugula, spinach and much more...








The green house now has a lovely brick walk way, making maneuvering through this spot a lot easier.





Mark has also been busy building compost boxes out of old wood and other goodies...




We are also excited to announce that the farm has extended its roots to Cabbage Town. We now are farming a small lot off of Berean Avenue. This plot will help provide even more fresh, naturally grown vegetables to the Atlanta community.







It's almost time for our CSA program to start and we couldn't be more excited. We hope you are all enjoying the last of spring as we head very quickly into a new season.

Take Care,
Elizabeth
