Building a future together...
Being a part of The Backyard Farm project creates a balanced & responsible relationship between people, the food they eat and the farmers who grow it. This mutually supportive relationship between your backyard farmers and community members helps develop an economically stable local food system.
Commitment to each other...
Members share in the weather-related risks of growing food with the
farmer, and in return receive a healthy supply of seasonal fresh produce throughout the growing season, from a farmer you know!
We'll need the answers to these questions:
Do you have six hours of sunlight in your yard?
Will the farmers have access to water and an area for composting close to where the farm will be placed?
How many people are in your household will we be farming for?
How often during a week do you cook?
How many vegetarians in the house?
Do you have any animals that we should know about?
