CSA Farm in Action
As part of our newest project, “Tanom, Fatinas, yan Sustansia,” one goal is to develop and operate a Community Supported Agriculture Model Farm (CSA). The yield of the farm will be combined with the produce of other small farms and distributed via a subscription service with regular subscribers, by the end of 2014. Below you can see the progress of the farm, beginning with day one of our first planting!
Planted seeds of basil (cinnamon, lemon, genovese and Siam Queen), mizuna (mustard greens), komatsuna (mustard mix for salads), rainbow chard, pak-choi, and hon-tsai-tai (Asian broccoli grown for the stems).
