Welcome to the new Red Barn Community Farm blog. This is the place where we can share news about our gardens, learn more from each other about gardening and find out what is working and not working here in the Snohomish River Valley. If you would like to be a co-author on the blog, please contact me at 425-28-9979 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This first week has been very busy. In the last two days since the article appeared in The Everett Herald, it has been picked up by the AP and appeared in dozens of newspapers across North America, including all the major papers in Washington state. At least 25 people have inquired about having a garden. The best way to get a plot is to go to our website: Transition Port Gardner.org and fill in an application. Your name goes into our database and you will get your plot assignment as soon as the spring tillage is complete. The land has been plowed and we expect to get a tractor back in this week (June 12-17, 2011) to disk or rototill or both.
Speaking of tractors, we really need our own equipment. If anyone knows of an idle tractor with a rototiller (at least 60 inch width, that can go over rough plowed ground), please contact us.
