Hope Springs…

After months of work trying to get the ground prepped and ready, the new farm land out at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America is really taking off.  We had our first harvest in February, and since then one thing after another is starting to come up.   After all of the planning and work we have put into this new venture, it is so wonderful seeing that once hard, dry land showing signs of life.  Take a look…

The four acres of sweet corn doesn’t look like much now, but this will soon be a field of green.

The patient garden has a mix of everything from onions to calendulas.

Celery, kale and carrots all in leafy green rows.

The Hope Springs Organic Farm is starting to become everything we had hoped.  It is exciting to see it come together and even more so to share it with the patients, caregivers, and staff at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, along with our family of farmers’ market customers and restaurants that we have been working with for so many years.
