"4th Grade's Orbital Planting Chart is coming along nicely! Students have been using protractors to tilt the Earth, and divide the orbit into 12 months. Now they are using planting calendars to chart where we can plant based on the tilt and Earth's orbit. They are also placing pictures of the plants next to the names. All Equinoxes and Solstices are labeled for both hemispheres. Thanks to @highmowingorganicseeds for the seed catalogs!"⠀

Had a fantastic informative night at @organicseedssmallbusiness Marketing Workshop. We can’t wait to implement everything we have learnt. Always learning. Always moving forward! We thought we knew our target market but nope- but now we do! #jigsaw#organicseeds#organicseedsworkshop
Malabar Chestnut, or Saba nut, is a gorgeous, fast-growing, evergreen nut tree native to tropical America. With lush, deep green leaves, highly ornamental and fragrant flowers and edible nuts, leaves and flowers it is a wonderful garden addition. Growing up to 7 metres tall it produces an abundance of large pods filled with green, football-shaped nuts that are both nutritious and tasty. The nuts can be roasted, fried in oil, added to stir-fry or eaten raw and are similar in taste to chestnuts or cashews once cooked, or peanuts if eaten raw. Now to wait for these to ripen! #malabarchestnut#sabanut#evergreen
We are getting ready for a busy summer here at Broad Arrow Farm! Thanks to @johhnys_seeds, we will have a nice selection of fruits and vegetables for our farm store, in addition to feeding ourselves, the interns and our livestock! There will also be plenty of flowers that will beautify the farm, be sold as cut flowers, and serve as food for our animals. What is everyone else growing this year?.
Our #seedoftheday is the ever useful Lemon Balm. This herb can be found all over the world, and spreads so readily that some call it a weed, but we couldn't possibly! It's used for tea, medicinal and skincare products, plus it repels mosquitos. Plant now or forever scratch your bites!

When we began this journey of “grow you’re own” & knowing we’re your food comes from, the first two questions we asked ourselves were "if were going to grow our own and all life starts as a seed, then that’s were we have to start" the seed. As many of you personally know me and what I’m about, it’s with great joy that today we’ve now been able to extend that seed of trust to you,because in the beginning we’ve sourced our stock & hand selected our seeds from various reputable sources and we’ve grown, saved the seed and repeat. So essentially now have our own generations of trusted seeds and we want to extend that to you, so here they are, I will be posting what’s available for you over the next few days, with all the relevant details, so excited about being able to our part of know we’re your seed(food) comes from with the expectancy of other families joining with us on their own journeys of growing and experiencing the life it brings.
