We welcome a market gardener who wants access to land to run their own business independently, and who enjoys collaboration and sharing land. We welcome someone to come as soon as possible to start prepping now for a strong start in spring 2023.
This is the garden as seen from the barn. It is about an acre. It is made up of 84 garden beds made Jean Martin Fortier style so they are 100 feet long, 30” wide with 18” paths. The beds are raised a bit from the paths. The garden is in four quadrants with wood chip paths forming an + through the middle. There is a mix of perennial beds (asparagus etc) and open beds for annuals. The soil is Harriston Silt. We have a rainwater drip irrigation system.
We are also willing to work out an arrangement to share our walk in cooler, shed space and other infrastructure as well as land for a dwelling and greenhouse. We can work out something suitable for the gardener’s needs. We are a pick up location for Eat Local Grey Bruce and have a nice set up for CSA pick ups.
This photo shows the making of one of the paths with the EdgeHill grade three class.
We are so excited about the changes happening here and have so many dreams for the near future. It will be so wonderful when we can celebrate all together again!
