EUSD Farm Lab Update

Posted on: August 7th, 2021

On the Farm:

On the north side of the property, we are currently growing organic lettuce, flowers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, melons and more for both the central kitchen and for the Tuesday Farm Stand that’s open from 2:00 – 5:00 each week. The farm stand is open to the community, so we hope to see you all there!

The farm stand is open during the Ecology Center’s Farm Share pick-up window.  To learn more about Farm Share or to sign up, click here

On the south side of the property, we are growing corn and pumpkins. There will be lots of fall fun for visiting students!

Student Education:

Speaking of students, educational visits resume in September. We are so excited to welcome back all EUSD students for sustainability programming during the 21-22 school year! The YMCA will continue to host after school childcare on site.

Site Projects:

Our Post Harvest Barn is complete, as well as our new greenhouse. We are constructing a small bioswale on the north side to ensure we retain all grey water from produce washing and barn runoff on site. We are also in the process of designing a labyrinth on our driveway island. Stay tuned!
