We are looking forward to see you! #wedel #hamburg #marketgarden #regenerativeagriculture #guthaidehof
Snowdrop anemones are blooming in the gardens. These early Spring bloomers will spread and can be considered somewhat invasive. These flowers will finish up with a decorative seedhead that leaves feathery fibers like a clematis. Anemones come in many great varieties like this Snowdrop for Spring and Japanese anemones for fall. #citygreengardens #certifiedorganic #organicreno #regenerativeagriculture #pollinatorgarden #perennials #pollinatorplant #gardening #growyourown #permaculture #marketgarden #gardening #smallfarms #urbanfarm #smallfarm #farmsmall #urbanfarmreno #renotahoe #renonevada #nevadagrown #nevada #northernnevada

Design sketches for the expansion of the garden we worked on in February 🌱 now that the rains are finally here - we’re on to the next phase of creating a nursery for the next veggie patch design. We’re also designing two mini food forest designs. Our clients want to be as self sustaining as possible so this makes a striking opportunity for us to make use of the spaces! 🌿 Each garden has been beautifully designed in phases. ———————————————————————- #permaculture #urbanpermaculture #urbankitchengarden #kitchengarden #microgreens #growfoodnowlawns #kenya #nairobi #landscaping #greeningeastafrica #permaculturekenya #regenerativeagriculture #ecoscaping #homegardens #growyourown #biodiversity #harvestforgood #growfoodforgood #soilhealth #groundcover #homegrown #landscapedesign #permaculturedesign #harvestingforgoodEA #organic
We’re excited to unveil our official packaging for our farm fresh eggs which will be available for purchase starting sometime during May! We’re working to get our website able to take orders soon for local purchases that we will schedule drops for starting with Moscow and Pullman (and obviously Palouse 😉). We will also be working to get them into several retail locations in the area for even more convenient purchase and pickup! 😃
Beautiful organic radishes! I'm back from holidays and straight back into the grind at work, but while I've been away all the vegetables have been growing like crazy! It's so rewarding to see the work paying off.
On this #Earthday week, together with #Kentuckians , #Tanzanians , #Burundians , and #Karenni , into our 4-acre terraced #agroforestry #farm at the Housing Authority of Bowling Green, we're planting 800 blackberry/raspberry, 750 asparagus, 25 mulberry, 25 hazelnut, 25 pecan, and 100 strawberry, either in terraces or in alleyways between #terraces . . The #communitygardens , those plots portioned out to individual residents and families, are also now being planted; everyday now there will be many diverse #farmers out on the landscape--making ours the liveliest farm in #bowlinggreenky . . March-planted #potatoes (Swahili: "ibiraya") and #onions (Swahili: "ibitungaru") are now up by the hundreds; and several hundreds of #treecrops --apples, pears, peaches, plums, cherries, serviceberries, hazelnuts, mulberries, pawpaws, pecans, chestnuts--are now in leaf. Blueberry shrubs are flowering, promising fruits in June; earliest strawberries are yellow now on blooming bunches; garlic is nearly 2 feet tall. . Both the new terraces from our April 2nd 1.5-acre expansion (#link in my profile), and the old terraces, constructed last year, are being interplanted with loads of #specialtycrops now. In December, we were announced winners of the @kentuckyag 2018-2021 Specialty Crop Grant. . All alleyways between terraces have been disced and sown with #covercrops (buckwheat and cowpeas); we are prepping these for more permanent beds to be installed in May. Everything is about to burst in dense arrays of #polyculture . Participation from the resident and #refugeefarmers is significantly higher than last year, which means *everything* for the sustainability of this project. You'd be impressed to see how quickly we are able to plant with groups of farmers like these. I am grateful to farm with them; grateful for this raw, cultural mixingbowl of a farm, which we've now named "Kaleidoscope Farm". As all of us are avid and passionate farmers, we fit-in together. Kazi njema! Good job! . Kaleidoscope Farm is sponsored and overseen by the @warrenconservation. . #cooperative #regenerativeagriculture #KyAg365 #refugees #refugeeswelcome #urbanconservation #urbanfarm #meanwhileinkentucky

Field work is a massive journey. . . As a gardener, it took me years to begin thinking about my soil as a whole- this living, breathing organism that was essentially mine to care for. . . I think for a long time I mostly thought about soil as just this pile of nutrients. Every summer, my plants and insects would take from the soil. Every spring, I'd give back in fresh compost and more plants. . . And I mean, it technically "worked." But it was still a give and take situation, and only one of us was marked as "hibernating" and frequently left disconnected from food and shelter for the months in between (hint: not me.) . . To look at the soil beneath my feet as a living organism (and compete ecosystem) is to feel compelled to grant her the agency, respect, and empathy she deserves. . . Every time I drag my hoe a little deeper to get a seed in, I wince. I add healing ingredients to the nutrient mix I put in the wound with my seeds, praying for partial absolution. . . Will this be enough? Will any of it ever be enough? . . I'm fully prepared for this to be a learning curve of a year. . . But also... seeds grow. 🙏🏼 . . . (Please don't DM me with questions about the field. I am so very tired right now, all of this was hand cut and aerated inch by inch over the last 72 hours, there was a lot of math involved, and I'm still not sure that I got it all right... but I promise I will talk about it very very soon. ❤️) . . . #regenerativeagriculture #covercrops #soilbuilding #agroecology #specialtyproduce #terroir
Hey Bakersfield we’re going to be out at the @marketatsevenoaksbusinesspark tomorrow from 5pm-8pm! We have just one thing for sale. We are pretty stoked to bring our very own Broadfork Salad! It’s a mixture of different seasonal greens, herbs, and roots and it will come with our own salad dressing recipe. These markets are once a month so we figured we would do something a little special each time. You can of course sign up for our CSA at the market as well. We hope you can make it and say hello and try out our Broadfork Salad!
Failure. After a full cycle, these eggs did not hatch. In fact, I only hatched 1 chick from a batch of 42 eggs this time. That drops my hatch rate down to 2.38% Not sure what happened but as I promised, I’m going to share the whole process w you. #familyfarm #smallfarm #organic #beyondorganic #regenerativeagriculture #soil #soilhealth #sustainable #sustainableagriculture #gettoknowahomesteader #homestead #homesteading #businessowner #familyiseverything #pacefl #florida #pensacola #reuse #upcycle #zerolandfill #earthfriendly #carrillosustainableagriculture
Because being vegan is a lifestyle and a choice that we make every day. Personally, I choose to live vegan for D. All of the above... The planet, the animals, my health, and for our future generations. —- In what ways do you contribute to positive change? 🌱💚♻️ Thank you for sharing @zerowastejaxgrocery ! ••• This kale was grown less than ten minutes from my house, using responsibly sourced materials and sustainable methods. It is pesticide free and absolutely delicious. I’m using this green glorious kale to make kale chips in my air fryer! First I wash the kale and tear the leaves off the stalks. Then I massage the kale with lemon juice and just a bit of olive oil and salt. Throw it in the air fryer for 10 min and sprinkle with nutritional yeast. Voila! Kale chips! @kevingrowsfood has kale is season right now - feel free to message him here on insta to get your very own locally grown food! #kale #local #904 #duval #textkevinforkale #organic #permaculture #community #renewable #sustainable #regenerativeagriculture #organic #iflookscouldkale 🥬

I think there is somwhere around 3 million acres of lawn in the USA, we can move toward transitioning those grass lawns into low cost,low maintenance, regenarative agriculture spaces. It would be the best option for human and planetary health, plus who really wants a grass lawn anyway, it just sucks up your money in maintance costs, and most americans rarely have the time to use there lawns. At the very least start a seed bank, if you start a seed bank now then if anything should happen in the future you will be a step ahead in the game of survival. . . . . . #saynotopesticides #nopesticides #foodshortage #organic #regenerativeagriculture #sustainable #gogreen #localfarm #sustainablefarming #growfoodnotlawns #growfood #supportlocal #farmerlife #permaculture #permaculturedesign #nature #agriculture #nongmo #heirloomseed #notill #backtoeden #growingfood #soilislife #soilhealth #sustainableliving #smallfarm #suburbanfarm #sunnycreekfarm #marketgarden
Earth 🌎 Day reminds me every year that I can take more steps to a regenerative lifestyle. Cloth diapering using cloth diapers purchased second hand for 3 children is a major win for our family. But what else can we do? Always have reusable bags ready, eat local, eat less meat (this one makes more of a difference than you’d think), buy in bulk using our own containers (very bad at remembering to bring containers to the store🤦🏻‍♀️), buy less stuff and what you do buy purchase second hand, stay away from fast fashion, bike to work, live in a reasonably sized home, shamelessly give second hand gifts, and one of my personal favs- tear off the front of greeting/thank you cards to be used again🌈grow vegetables not grass, shop local, shop sustainable, compost, recycle, repair clothing and shoes. #roguecarrots #regenerativeagriculture #savemotherearth
Starting our restoration project for this back field. We let it rest last season, so I’m getting what popped up cut down. Corn and soy were grown here in rotation for many years. After much deliberation, we will be using a disc harrow to prepare for seed. This will be the final disturbance for the soil after many years of tillage, and is part of a regenerative project. This field will spend the rest of its life with us as a carbon farm and pasture. Thank you to everyone that offered their input and advice on how to approach this step. ✨🌾🌞🐄🦙🐓🐾 #carbonfarming #pasture #closedloop #cannabis #beyondorganic #grassfed #regenerativeagriculture #sequestercarbon #alpaca #dextercattle #cannabiscommunity #livingsoil

Martino's Roma tomato Plum shaped fruit, very meaty, low seed count. Great tomato for salsa, and sauces. As italian as the name sounds though the Roma tomato was developed in 1955 by the USDA. All Roma tomatoes from my understanding come from a shared ancestor in south america,that anscestor was domesticated in Mexico before the spanish conquistadors sailed it across the ocean to europe in the early 1600s. It eventually took off in popularity with the tomato being a key ingrediant in many Italian recipes. . . . . . #tomato #spanish #food #italianroots #regenerativeagriculture #tomatoes #romatomatoes #localfarm #sustainablefarming #growfoodnotlawns #growfood #supportlocal #farmerlife #permaculture #permaculturedesign #nature #agriculture #nongmo #heirloomseed #notill #backtoeden #growingfood #soilislife #soilhealth #sustainableliving #smallfarm #suburbanfarm #sunnycreekfarm #marketgarden
This Week On the Farm and Other Adventures: Spring has finally arrived.. Much later than ususal. Now putting the grain seed in the ground. With spring comes spring goodies. In Paouse Country real men do eat quiche. At Palouse Heritage some men actually make quiche. First asparagus from the garden, one neighbor's fresh eggs, another neighbors bacon, our herb garden chive, garlic from last year, dash of dried tomato from last year, Mt Spokane morel and a shot of The Grain Shed Red Russian Wheat Beer.. Now back to the field. #regenerativeagriculture #bethechange #farmtotable #climatechange #spokane #sustainability #noglyphosate #gogreen #biodiversity #thegrainshed #quiche
Coming together. It was too windy to put up the metal roofing today (didn’t really feel like getting decapitated) but the bones are solid. Next up, digging a French drain and graveling the floor, and built in spray tables. Aww yeah. #csa #permaculture #regenerativeagriculture #eatlikeyougiveadamn #knowyourfarmer
So we had a death in the herd today but where there is loss there is also an opportunity. As I marched out to start digging to bury our departed animal I had a moment of clarity that this was an opportunity. I returned inside to put on my "digging clothes" and while inside I discussed my plan for the burial with the family. My middle son was insistent on helping which I quickly accepted because I realized I could use all the help I could get. We marched out to the burial site and began digging. Instead of being sad I took this as an opportunity to be with my son. It was also a reflection of what a contribution this particular animal had been to our homestead. I found sincere gratitude and respect for so much about this situation. It was very hard to say good-bye to this animal for me but also in perspective of how much he'd done for our homestead. It was also a memory I made with my son that I'll never forget! How do you turn a negative situation into a positive?⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #dadtime #dadthings #fathers #dadandson #dadandsons #homesteadlife #thehomestead #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativefarming #regenerativeag #homesteader #theupcycledfamily #the_upcycled_dad

This is a future orchard. Currently there are nitrogen fixers planted. The piles of woodchips were an experiment. That didn't work. I thought it would hold moisture but even 200mm of woodchips won't hold water through the entire summer. This means there needs to be different water management strategies. I am planting seeds of annuals and trees prior to the rains. Once the rains come I will be planting fruit trees and more support trees. We will try to do a net and pan design to see if that helps. . . . . . #regenerativeag #permaculturefarm #swale #soilbuilding #westernaustralia #homestead #homesteading #farmstead #dryland #growfoodwhereyoulive #permaculture #wheatbeltwa #sustainableliving #knowyourtrees #plantfood #planttrees #regenerativeagriculture #naturalfarming #beyondorganic #solarpower

It's Fashion Revolution Week, a time when many of us ask "What can I do to shift the fashion industry toward sustainability?" One of the most fun, rewarding and life-changing actions in our Coop is, as ever, connecting with the land around us, and the people who steward it. What plant dyes grow near you? Who has sheep, and what kinds are they? What fiber crops grow (or could grow, or used to grow) in your region? How might you begin to suss out the answers to these questions? The answers refresh and regenerate our world, moods, friendships, creative collaborations, and lives, not just our closets and yarn stashes. In our region, two upcoming events (see www.fibershedmarketplace.com/events for details) answer some of these questions: the Chico Flax Spring Festival this Saturday, April 27 (@mendowool will have wool-flax blend roving for sale!), and the annual Woad Trip on May 31 (wild harvesting in Modoc National Forest), followed by a day of dyeing on Saturday, June 1. We invite you to meet the land and people who grow our clothes, and get hands on in our fibershed. (Besides: the weather is glorious! Our rainy season has worked wonders not to be missed.) #fashionrevolutionweek #fashionrevolution #whomadeyourclothes #woad #flax #regenerativeagriculture #getoutside @chicoflaxtolinen @lanislanawool @deepcreekyarns @fibershed_ @fibershedmarketplace

Everyone’s on the move now that the pastures are filling out. We move all of our animals daily or weekly during the growing season to give them access to fresh forage and to not over tax any one piece of land. Low stress on the animals also means to us a dedication to low stress for the land also. Each animal plays a unique role in our grazing management. Our rabbits rotate around the orchards which are slowly getting rehabilitated and new trees planted in them each year. The sheep help us with weeds and rotate through smaller pastures the Cattle can’t graze in. The pigs help us clean up the wooded areas and stop the willow trees from spreading and also clean up the garden in the winter. Last but not least the Cattle and Chickens work in a symbiotic relationship keeping our largest pastures grazed and fertilized in away that allows us to not need any fertilizer from off the farm. We take care of the animals, the land feeds them and in turn they give health to the land we love. From all of this we get to provide our community with nutrient dense food, beautiful fiber, and nourishing soaps and salves. It’s so simple but also has an incredible depth to what it provides for everyone involved. #regenerativeagriculture #multispeciesrotationalgrazing #knowyourfarmer #grassfedmeat #nutrientdense
Regenerate - restored to a better, higher, or more worthy state. Since I was a young boy I have watched my father plant and graze cover crops, this has since transitioned our family farm into regenerative agriculture. We now practice no-till, cover crops, rotational grazing, diverse pastures and livestock integration. As a millennial I am here to share my story in today's agriculture and answer any questions.
Barn Party and the humans weren’t invited! 😂😂😂
Ich war gestern im Küchengarten so beschäftigt, dass ich "Earth Day" komplett versäumt habe. Das macht aber nichts, denn jeder Tag ist für mich Tag der Erde. In mehrfacher Hinsicht. Habt ihr gewusst? Ca. 10% der Treibhausgase in Europa werden von der Landwirtschaft produziert. Weltweit bis zur Hälfte! Meine Strategie ist Fokus auf das Bodenleben. Ein intaktes unterirdisches Ökosystem bedeutet gesunde Pflanzen. Gesunde Pflanzen bedeuten gesunde Tiere, inklusive gesunde Menschen. Aber nicht nur das. Ungestörter Boden speichert CO2. Noch wichtiger: Wenn zusätzliche Düngungsmittel - insbesondere Stickstoff - nicht nötig ist, wird weniger NO2 (Stickstoffdioxid) produziert. Lebensmittelproduktion verursacht immer Treibhausgase. Im Falle des Küchengartens sind es Methan im Mist bevor der Kompost zum Garten kommt und in Form von Stickstoffdioxid beim Kompostieren von Grünzeug, ob als Mulch oder am Komposthaufen. Ich verzichte auf möglichst viele Ursachen von Emissionen, setze auf Handarbeit, verwende ausschließlich Kompost aus Gartenabfall bzw. kompostierten Pferdemist. Wo ich noch dran bin: Die Verwendung von Plastik, einerseits am Feld zwecks Okkultation und Solarisierung und andererseits bei der Verpackung. Ich gehe davon aus, dass Plastik (ob Bio-Kunststoff oder herkömmlicher Kunststoff) in 2-3 Jahren nicht mehr nötig sein wird, mit Ausnahme von Treibhausfolie auf Tunneln. Frische hat für mich Vorrang. Bei der Verpackung tue ich mir deshalb schwer. Delikate Produkte wie Kräuter, Blüten und Salatmischung welken schnell, wenn sie Trockenheit und Hitze ausgesetzt werden. Experimente mit Backpapier waren relativ erfolgreich letztes Jahr, aber nur wenn die Salatköpfe zusätzlich in Thermotaschen geschützt waren. Bioplastik ist für mich keine nachhaltige Lösung (Ökobilanz nicht gut, nicht kompostierbar, und so weiter). Also, ich suche weiter. Mehr darüber im Laufe der Saison. Kunden beim Selbstbedienungsstand werden jedenfalls Kühlboxen häufiger sehen. Sie schauen nicht so schön aus wie eine offene Ausstellung von den farbenfrohen Kostbarkeiten aus dem Küchengarten, halten aber dafür frisch! #ökobilanz #earthday #gemüseanbau
