lets grow!

summer is coming! And in preparation we have begun planting and setting up rain barrels. Most of the land is uncultivated but we have been clearing a few patches for lettuces herbs sunflowers and 8 or so tomatoes that Chris traded home brew for. If you would like to join us you can email us at novafarm.rcg@gmail.com . feel free to drop by any time (the gate on 25th st. between cherry and Columbia is unlocked if you would prefer not hop a fence) we have started having work party’s every Saturday around noon, so come and sow some seeds while the soil is warm!

abandoned sculptures

farm update. winter is leaving us slowly, as the 1.5 pounds of oyster mushrooms I harvested yesterday (in seattle) would indicate soon it will be time to start planting seeds of warmer climate loving plants inside. the first green buds are appearing on the rhubarb plants, and we have planted a handful of native conifers around the grounds. we are working on our zine FARM, LIFE. watch for it because it will be out there soon, featured in it is this poem  by a communard titled abandoned sculptures. 

Abandoned sculptures 

Half moon pennies 

Rust buttoned sunflower shade 

Grey age yawning 

 

Across memories scattered 

 

Golden in the grave 

  

  

Mild winter sun 

 

Popcorn bushes 

 

Next to scabbed rose thumbs 

 

And a young pear tree 

  

  

These pathways retain 

 

The scents of their scattered poetry and 

 

The seeds of coming spring 

 

Blossoms hiding under the wry smile of humility 

 

At their desertion 

  

  

Grass blades wear 

 

Blunted converse stitching scars 

 

And the indents of sun tanned toes 

 

Stretching out from the pressure 

 

The lost flannel sheet comfort 

  

  

Of mid afternoon 

 

Raggedy lollygaggin’ 

 

Teeth chattering 

 

Like piranha shadow puppets 

Drowning on top of the ice

winter update

right now we have quite a few small, but long term projects such as; working on planting a wood lot on the west end, for the beauty and ecological use of trees, also working on getting gutters hooked to rain barrel.  just the other day we made a compost bin out of wood pallets an old bike rack chicken wire, and the side of a building . we are asking for your help with resources, plants, soil, hoses, > 2 gallon pots, rain barrels, your time, gardening related supplies, and money. we will table at madison market periodically in 2010. we are still few in numbers if you would like to join contact us at novafarm.rcg@gmail.com

planning meeting + potluck

IMG_2462_edited 

the very first planning meeting and potluck, will be held november 14th at 3:30 pm at the nova farm (2410. e cherry st.). this will be the first meeting and potluck in hopefully an exponentialy increasing line. why? because as of now the nova farm is dormant, it is waiting to germinate, to build a strong commune of neighbors gathering to acomplish common goals. but before we decide what our goals are we need to decide them as a commune. I am determined that together we will be stronger than we are alone; the sum of the group is greater than that of its parts. let us gather so we can grow to be the change we wish to see
