Second to Last Farm Stand of the Season!

That's right!

There are only two more farm stands left in 2015. Come see all the delicious veggies we have available.

What happens after the farm stand is over?

We have a Fall Mini CSA! Find out more here.

First farm stand of the season starts May 12th!

That's right! Tuesday, May 12th 4-7 pm,will be the very first farm stand of the season- we couldn't be more excited. Come celebrate the little squares of remaining green space, say hello, and get some veggies!

Just a heads up that traffic is more terrible than ever, so be patient if you are driving. There is parking on Cook right in front of the farm stand or on Williams before Pizza A Go-Go. You may prefer to walk or bike (the left bike lane and traffic light make for easy and safe stop-bys) if you can.


If you've been thinking, "Hey, what's it like to work and party at the same time?" Here's your chance.

On Saturday, May 16th we will be getting together to pull weeds, transplant starts from the greenhouse, eat lunch, and enjoy the farm in the full flush of spring. Drop in any time between 9 and 4, and stay for as long as you want. We will provide gloves, tools, and lunch. Please RSVP so we know how much food to bring for lunch.

If you can't make it for the work party, don't worry; we have volunteer drop-in days every Tuesday from 9 until 4 and Saturday from 10 until 2.

farming season has begun!

Work Party!
And here we are again. The beginning of another season at Blue House Greenhouse Farm. I don't think many people (including myself) thought we would be able to keep going at our location as buildings go up and down all around us, but here we are! And we are excited to be here for another year.

What's new this year? Well I am excited to say that there will be a few more folks helping out! I will be partnering with Adam Marx, Gentiana Loeffler, and Christopher Himes. I've learned that it is so much better to spread the work and learn from more brain power. Welcome aboard you three!

The greenhouse fixed and seeds started.
What else? This past Saturday we had our first work party of the season! I am really impressed by the dedication of our volunteers. The forecast was ugly. However the 15 people that attended were rewarded with sun! And a bunch of hard labor. And lunch. I think it was worth it! The lunch itself was worth it. Amy made a salmon quiche and Eileen made focaccia. Adam and Julie made chocolate chip cookies, Gentiana made spicy sweet potatoes, I made a veggie chili, and we had salad greens from the farm.Yum. I am just trying to entice you all to come to the next work party. So the weather and the food were great, and we got so much done! We fixed the greenhouse that was damaged by the wind back in December, cleared a ton of blackberries, made potting soil, started seeds, turned compost, spread wood chips, and things I don't even remember. Thank you to all the folks that came out to help! Stay tuned for more info regarding upcoming work parties and farm related fun. I promise to update more regularly then once every six months.
