The field is being planted right now! more information as the season progresses.
Welcome to our third season growing vegetables on City owned open-space in Arvada.
Everything we sell, we have personally planted, grown and harvested with the help of our excellent volunteers. It is all grown LOCALLY right here in Arvada using organic methods, free of pesticides and herbicides.
Here is the link to our 2016 End of Year Report. Last year we exceeded our goals and grew almost 2 tons of vegetable! Thanks to everyone for their support. Ken is working on tabulating all of the harvest sheets and will update the 2016 results soon:)
Our Percheron draft horses, Pete & Caine, are back in the field again. This week they prepared the soil for Onion planting. They can work even when it is too wet for other equipment.
Project Background: On September 22, 2014 the City of Arvada approved our proposal for an Agricultural Lease for approximately 2 acres at the historic Kennedy Farm Property at 7000 Garrison Street! We are excited to continue farming on this historic Arvada property to produce LOCAL FOOD :)

Here is a link to the original 1998 Majestic View Community Park Master Plan. This document gives a little history of the property and why we now have the opportunity to grow vegetables on City owned land.
The Agricultural Lease at the Kennedy Farm Property also serves to fulfill a goal set by the Arvada Sustainability Advisory Committee. The committee is served by citizens of Arvada appointed by the City Council. One of the goals under the Community Vitality category is to “Encourage more community based agriculture within the City of Arvada”
