The Hudson Heartbeet Community Farm provides a wide variety
of ecologically grown vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs;
educational opportunities to learn about organic farming;
a social reinsertion program; community events; and celebrations.
Set up of the permanent farm site
on the land across from Thompson Park will occur in phases:
In 2017 the focus on site was infrastructure and soil preparation while produce was grown on a temporary location. The process for organic certification began, meaning the crops were grown using organic standards.
There were workshops and work parties open to the community throughout the year.
In 2018, full production, organic certification and programming will be in full swing on the land at 723 Main road.
