Happy World Soil Day!

Did you know that 1 tablespoon of soil has more organisms in it than there are people on earth? Or that there are 5,000 different types of bacteria in one gram of soil? Or that it takes nature 500 years to build one inch of topsoil?

Here at Urban Futures Farm we are giving Mother Nature a hand. The beautiful Crimson Clover and Cayuse Oats that blanket our farm this time of year will be cut and tilled in next Spring, adding nutrients, hundreds of pounds of organic matter and providing food to those organisms and bacteria that help us build and maintain healthy soil – which means nutrient dense, delicious, nutritious food for our friends and customers.

To enjoy the bounty of our soil, sign up for a 2021 CSA share.  Returning customers can sign up beginning later this month, with new customers welcome in January.  More details soon!
