For three years, 15 families have been working cooperatively on a plot of about 1/4 acre, and they’re growing!  This year, they added 10,000 square feet, a gazebo, a bean teepee, stone stairs, and a rainwater irrigation system.  They’re growing potatoes, pumpkins, cutting flowers, basil, greens, tomatoes, melons, sweet potatoes, beets, asparagus, beans and more.  For the first time this Fall, they’ll harvest honey from their two beehives.  “We have monthly potlucks to which neighbors and friends are invited, and an annual harvest party in early October.  We are accepting new cooperative members for our fall season.” Contact Jennifer@jmurphyart.com for more info.
