Harvesting Earth Educational Farm
Youth Karate-Ka Association has been very busy developing our Harvesting Earth Educational Farm. We have acquired 15 acres and are very excited about the possibilities and experiences Harvesting Earth is providing our students, families and community. We use no pesticides or herbicides. We use no hormones or antibiotics. Our produce is ALL NATURAL. We are looking forward to obtaining our organic certification next year. We employ local youth at Harvesting Earth. They are learning valuable skills and learning how important it is to buy local food. Not only do we know where its grown, but we also know how it was grown and it helps the local economy. And we all know thats a very good thing! There are countless lessons to be learned at Harvesting Earth. We have had students who did not know that potatoes grow in the ground, but thought instead they grew in trees! What an eye opener! Harvesting earth still has lots of work to do this year. We have plans to put up our second greenhouse this fall. We are also putting in a rain cistern that will capture the rain from both greenhouses, store it in a cistern, and then pump it back up for use on the produce. We produce all year around and are sellingat Flint's Farmers Market, Hurley Market, and restaurants around the area. We also sell from our karate school on Wednesday and Friday from 6-8 pm. If you need something at a different time just stop by the farm!
Harvesting Earth Educational Farm is defending our fundamental right to fresh and healthy locally grown food. Come support our efforts, give us a call.
