Acadia Community Farm Seedlings
Sunday April 3, 2011  2pm - 4pm (2 Hours )
(902) 542- 9483

2011 is the fourth season that we're offering garden space for community members to plant - students and everybody else!

After the 1:00pm plotholder sign-up meeting, we'll move to the K.C. Irving Centre greenhouses for the largest seedling starting event of the year (tomatoes, parsley, and cabbage family crops - cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale). Yay seedlings!!!


The Acadia Farm is a community garden - students and Wolfville residents can grow food alongside one another on individual plots of land. The important benefits are a shed full of shared tools, garden materials (straw, water...) and importantly, encouragement and a helping hand from fellow gardeners. The Farm is a place for us to revisit and reinforce productive connections between friends and neighbors, and introduce children and beginners to the joys of growing food!

The Acadia Farm is also a student garden - connecting the campus community with their food in new ways. We grow over 20 vegetables and herbs for the campus dining hall, using responsible methods. Our very local vegetables replace conventionally grown produce often sourced from operations thousands of miles from Wolfville.

The Acadia Farm also fills an urgent need in the community. Produce is delivered to the Wolfville Food Bank throughout the season, adding the nutrition of fresh vegetables to what 'non-perishable' items have to offer. The 2011 season will see increased cooperation with the Food Bank, as the Farm invites everybody who grows with us to donate some of their time, effort, and expertise to this communal effort.

The Acadia Farm is, in many senses, growing. Plots are available for the 2011 season, but there are many other ways to get connected with the project. Visit the website to learn more about what the Farm is and how it works, but don't let that replace a visit to the Farm. We're north of Raymond Field (behind the Athletic Centre) on the Wolfville dykelands, where we will be working the land with much enthusiasm!
