The Hudson Heartbeet Community Farm will provide 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 will be infrastructure and soil preparation while produce will be grown on a temporary location. The process for organic certification will begin, meaning the crops will be grown using organic standards. We invite you to be part of the transformation -
there will be workshops and work parties that are open to the community.
In 2018, full production, organic certification and programming on the land.
