🌿C R A F T I N G🌿

#foraging and #wildcrafting can be a tricky business; a combination of pragmatism and intuition. Practically observing your environment and utilising what is available for medicine and food, but also listening to your gut about seasonality and Timing.
Today I started on outside chores before the 15in of expected rain comes, and while working beside the #yellowdock patch, I simply knew it was Time. Early spring, a chance day of sunshine, #anthraquinones, prehistoric loose and sandy soil. Sometimes you know when you know, and when nature tells you. Tune into your stories tonight to learn about processing this super root 👌🏽🌻

Our first planting of the year! We will have plenty of #sugarsnappeas to share with visiting students this spring. Growing snap peas while it is still cold out improves their flavor, and it means we will get to enjoy beautiful flowers early in the season! 💐🌱🐝🐛 .

Woah!
Nice healthy St Andrews Cross spider near our monitoring points at the Boogan farm.
How would you react if you came across this guy? 🕷️ 🕸️ #ecobananas #redtipbanana #spider #biodiversity #chemicalfree #ecoganic #tropicalnorthqueensland #ecosystem #sustainablefood #sustainableagriculture #passion
We had an unexpected visitor to the farm the other morning. The kids woke up to what looked like a flying mouse flapping around their room. Our oldest managed to safely capture this minute creature in a fly net and we released him down in the sheds, where he quickly flew away into a steel pipe near the ceiling. We had never before seen a micro bat on the farm, but turns out they are everywhere. There are more than 60 species of micro bats in Australia alone. They can be found in the city too because habitat destruction is causing the micro bats out of their native tree-hollows and into urban areas. The plus side is that they eat an enormous amount of insects. You can sometimes see them at dusk heading out for a bug feast. Looks like a micro bat roosting box might be the new weekend project.

WATER : Here you see two men engaged with fluids in a makeshift kitchenette at yet another off-grid experiment in Portugal. The man behind the bar draws water sourced from the land-well through a metal faucet. The well-drawn water is theoretically safe, but it is nonetheless risky to consume and thus reserved for dirty dishes; drinking water comes from the tabletop filter used by the righthand man. I am forever awed by the hidden luxury of safe water access while volunteering over these past years, and yet I forget this gift so quickly when returned to cities. Better to remember.
So this #eatlancet reference diet... how much is a gram anyway? Well this is your days worth of nuts (25g), cheese (25g) and legumes (100g). .
I also immediately ate the cheese after this pic. 🧀 .

In the Peruvian Andes, at more than 4 thousand meters high, the original maca grows.

Cultivated for thousands of years, it maintains the ancestral techniques of respect for the Earth.

To survive under these circumstances, the maca absorbs all the possible nutrients of the land and becomes a powerful superfood with high nutritional and medicinal values.

"Why do we continue to attack the American farmer? The very people that feed us. Lately, it feels like every time I open my phone I see more and more articles about “going vegan to save the planet” or how “cow farts are causing climate change”. A great example is the Green New Deal proposed by Ocasio-Cortez.

Are you serious?! I think there are some bigger fish to fry in this debate about climate change than cow farts."

In open fields and under open skies, cattle in the Pampas region of South America range happy and free under the care of gauchos (traditional South American cowboys). ⠀

At Gaucho Ranch, we prioritized the care and wellbeing of the animals we consume long before it was a trend in the west. Our core values center around fair and sustainable animal welfare practices and we hold ourselves to the rigorous INAC standards of meat quality and sustainability in Europe in addition to the standards of the USDA. ⠀

The aging rate of coffee trees means the urgent need of the renovation and rehabilitation of crops. Last week #utzcertified @rainforestalliance and #afca hosted a Sustainability Day session exploring the different challenges coffee farmers face. From UTZ: "In order to make the coffee sector viable, it is critical to involve the next generations. Young people bring fresh ideas to the table creating better chances for profitability and innovations." They discussed how we can make the coffee industry more attractive to young people now and for generations to come. Our International Agriculture Specialist, Sjoerd Melsert, shared Oikocredit's latest insights.

Everyone say hi to our farm kitten, Catniss😻her and her siblings were found in a parking garage in West Palm, so we took them in. She got her name after Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games because she was the only one of her siblings brave enough to interact with us humans (her siblings have a few hideouts around the farm)! If you come for a Wednesday tour, you can often see her hanging out with us, providing some comic relief or curiously investigating around the property.

We’re getting ready! Stop by and see us at booth #2433!
Pictured above is a soil sample taken from my garden under a microscope at 400x magnification. Nathan Rutz from @rustbeltriders taught an amazing workshop on soil organisms which this picture is taken from! The most notable organism from this photo is the worm shaped fungus on the right. Fungi in the soil attach themselves to plant roots, effectively extending the plants reach and ability to aquire essential nutrients and minerals from the soil. If you are in the Cleveland area I would highly recommend checking out Rust Belt Riders. They collect and recycle food waste in Cleveland Ohio by composting it, and selling it as an amazing soil amendment. They are also finalizing a new custom compost based potting soil recipe. Check it out at @tilth.soil
A huge thanks to @edibleohio @ediblecolumbus @ediblecleveland and @edibleindy for generously sending me to the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association, #oeffa , conference this weekend! I learned a lot from my workshops and connected with several other beginning farmers while I was there. I've got several key takeaways and goals moving forward for this year. More to come on that in the coming weeks.
Hey #ctbrides #ctweddingplanners #ctweddingvenues @blue_earth_compost wants your wedding waste! Composting is one of the best ways to reduce #foodwaste, encourage #sustainableagriculture and fight #globalwarming so we’re super excited to see them take this on. They’re growing in heaps and if you’d love to support these efforts, help them out through their Indiegogo campaign! .

At our recent Local Artisan Cheese Day, attendees voted on their "fan favorite" cheese and @pasturepride Juusto with Bacon Crumbles was deemed the winner! It's a Scandinavian bread cheese, toasted in ovens to create a delicious caramelized crust. Pasture Pride recommends serving the cheese warm to enjoy the rich and chewy texture and subtle bacon flavor.
To celebrate the fan favorite, we are offering 15% OFF Pasture Pride's Juusto with Bacon Crumbles through March 15 at our on-farm market. Stop in and stock up! 🧀
We've got roots!
Culled the two smaller clones, and upped the nutrient solution.
Not sure where I'm going to home this tomato, but I'll find something.
Successful experiment!

While i’m not 100% vegan, I strive to eat mostly a #plantbased diet to help lower my #carbonfootprint , waste, and use of non-renewable resources. 🥦

Eating mostly a plant-based diet requires between 20-30 gallons of water per day to grow and distribute. Diets that contain mostly meat require at a minimum 3,000 gallons of water a day, from feeding and raising the animal, till it actually ends up on your plate. 🐄That’s over 100x more water a day being used to create a meat based meal😳. I’m not proposing we all become vegetarians or vegans(yet), but I do suggest that meat eaters out there should be consuming less amounts of it daily. Striving for once a day if you normally eat meat 3x a day or perhaps go one or more full days with out meat and see how you feel. As well as seek and support more #sustainablefarms that raise animals mindfully and with the environment in mind. This ensures better and more responsible means of raising live-stock for our consumption. 💧

While I still need some meat in my diet, I feel much better when my diet consists of whole foods and vegetables. I know I’m helping the planet too! Just start with baby steps and go from there, every little bit helps and adds up. ♻️Need some meal inspiration just head over to my link in profile to fund some veggie based recipes!🌱

The last of our veggie seeds are in! Inheriting a mini seed bank has definitely been a privilege in curbing initial seed costs, but also a risk in germination rates 🤷🏽‍♀️ Between tinctures mellowing on the shelf and a potential surplus of seedlings, stay tuned for some EXCITING GIVEAWAYS in the next few weeks 🙏🏽👌🏽🌻🌱

@tapairportugal: your carbon compensation programs in #Brazil haven't been showing recently as a purchase choice- do you still offer the alternative?

It's 21 days! 3 solid weeks gone!!.
.
Look how grown this fellows are.😀.
.
They are so ready for a new/permanent home.

Unfortunately the soil is not ready to house them yet. We would wait a few more days and transplant on the 25th day. (tomatoes nursery can stay up to the 4th week)..
.
This is part of the struggles with growing organic food but I tell you it's all worth it.😍.
.
Kindly share the longest time your nursery have waited in the tray and extra measures you have tried to get your soil ready for planting in due time.

Last month, we introduced you to our founders and told you how they arrived at this work. This month we’re sharing a bit about each of our founder’s current roles in the business. First up is Jennifer, in her own words:

“As a small start-up, Tina and I have had to do just about every job there is at Firsthand Foods, but as we’ve grown our team, we’ve had the opportunity to specialize a bit more. I direct our marketing initiatives and get excited about telling the stories of our farmers and supply chain partners. I love to write and design projects and that’s been helpful for developing grant support to grow our business. I also manage the supply-related aspects of the business, including developing our production standards and overseeing our livestock network coordinators. Managing our food safety and quality assurance programs is also my job - I make sure that we have systems in place to guarantee the integrity of our products.

A perfect week for me at Firsthand Foods would include the chance to visit one of our livestock producers, write a new blog post about our partners or products, land a new customer, brainstorm with Tina about business development ideas, solve a problem related to supply chain logistics, and share a meal with our fun team members!”

We love our farmers!! They work so hard to provide beautiful, nutritious, and sustainably grown produce. This is David McConnel, a dear friend and a man of many talents. David runs @infinityhundredfarms, the largest urban farm on the east cost. He has multiple greenhouses and plots spread out over the triangle area. This one shown is the NCSU aquaponics house. The plants feed the fish, and the fish feed the plants. Its a beautiful thing! David maintains this learning environment for students in exchange for the use of the house. He grows our salad mix, kale, Bibb lettuce, and herbs. Thank you for all you do!! Come taste these delicious greens at our grand opening, TOMORROW FEB 19TH!! #sustainableagriculture #farmerfriend

After returning home at the end of Phase I, I battled with the thought of leaving this place once again for Phase II. It felt wrong to be abandoning my community that so desperately needs healing.

However, I also realized that I wasn't yet ready to be the change my community needs. Sometimes, you need to leave home to discover opportunities that will help you build and craft skills in order to best serve your community down the road.

So after a brief two months, I embarked on another transition. I headed to Staunton for my Phase II placement at AMI's Farm at Augusta Health. -Nick Hodgson, Phase II Fellow

Bringing the #circulareconomy to #sustainableagriculture #wastetoresource @volcanicenter
Lemme be honest with you, I’m not a fan of drinking coffee. I love the smell, but can’t down that bitter taste unless it’s some fancied up drink from @starbucks. #basic? Maybe. My point here isn’t coffee, but the mug I’m holding.
☕️
Use all the hashtags you want- #nonGMO, #naturalfarming, #organic - Food is still food no matter how it’s grown. I’m more of a Pro GMO person, but not everyone is.
🌿
I also can’t be the only one that gets a little bummed when I find cute farmhouse decor but ‘organic’ and ‘natural’ are plastered all over it in @hobbylobby. Of course, I don’t want ‘conventional farming’ plastered all over my #farmhousedecor either. I’m also not saying eradicate all decor that says those things, as I know many of you farm that way, and I respect your decision. Gimme more options, ya know?
🏠
Just because we farm and create our lifestyles in different ways doesn’t mean we need to go against each other, but promote however you feel in a positive way. You have your ways of marketing, I have mine. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll bridge that producer to consumer gap a little more, allowing consumers to make their food decisions with a little more confidence.
🐮
You’ll also find me still purchasing all those cute farmhouse goodies no matter what they say (because I love agriculture).

Yesterday we went with @Taylors to meet some members of Ejo Heza - a womens group that's part of the Kopakama cooperative in Western Rwanda. We heard how some women had used the revolving fund to start income generating projects such as opening a shop in the community and growing vegetables to sell at the market. Most the women we met had already repaid their loans and their households were benefitting from a second source of income.

It's #NationalDrinkWineDay 🍷🍷🍷
And like so many things we enjoy, we can thank those hard workers in the agriculture industry for wine. Grape growers in several states contribute to America’s successful wine industry. For example, California is home to 5,900 grape growers, creating 325,000 jobs across the state and 786,000 jobs nationwide.

Cheers to Wine and Cheers to California grape growers!🍇

Sustainable agriculture and reliable water resources needs to be established for people in third world countries. This would help provide more ways to produce vegetables and medicine plants. Having to walk miles for a little bit of nourishment and care is devestating for some. Carrying back these types of resources are hard. We need to fund a mission to help grow and expand their country-side. ·
