Hey-hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Today-I went over to the CVC Urban Farm on Atwood (south on Cascade, left on street after Checkers and then third right onto Atwood). Every Sunday from 3-6pm-you can buy fresh veggies by the pound. Grown locally!
We continue to celebrate sustainable living in the West End, here are some lovely pictures for you to enjoy!
Welcome to the CVC Urban Farm in the Historic West End!
Friends come together to grow, harvest and share GA grown, fresh veggies!
Every Sunday from 3-6pm, you can buy veggies by the pound.
Yummy squash! These crates remind me of when I was little at my grandmother's farm in Venezuela.
This community/urban farm is run by dedicated volunteers!
Fresh kale. This table looked absolutely beautiful.
In addition to fresh veggies, you can also purchase plants. Many of the plants are heirlooms and organically grown.
Water used to sustain the plants comes from this well/water pumping system
And but of-course they compost...
This area was recently cleared, it will soon become a new planting area. The farm is appx 2.5 acres.
Overview of plots w/ tomato plants, green beans, peppers and more.
Lovely corn (best part of all they didn't plant it)
Robert is the Executive Director of Creating Vibrant Communities + one of the founders of the farm.
Robert shows me the pole beans.
Fresh peppers will be ready soon
Great-now I can't remember what these are...eggplant? I think.
green beans-tons of green beans for SALE!
Kwabena is also a founder of the farm. Here he waters the plants after a busy day of harvesting.
Absolutely beautiful-red cabbage!
Anna Foote also volunteers at the farm.
Stephanie is our Farm Manager, we are SO GRATEFUL for all of her hard work!
These are also for sale every sunday 3-6 pm + they cost $20 bucks!
Anna and Robert relax in the shade.
Kwabena and Debbie chat. Debbie also started a community garden called Rose Circle Garden. We'll be featuring her later this month.
I got all this for $5 bucks! My money went to support local (West End) agriculture. No need for big trucks, tons of gas consumption, chemicals--just good veggies grown in GA!
