What is new for this season in 2013?
Check out our website lately? Google Earth released the newest photograph of the Wendron Moors Estate Farm from outer space! It was shot in approximately April of 2013.
You can clearly see the final phases of construction of our perimeter fence project. The fence is designed in such a way as to deter the dogs that share the yard as part of the Canine Sanctuary from digging around the fence or attempting to leave the perimeter. To visit this Urban Farm and Canine Sanctuary, contact us to schedule a tour.
In the new photo you can also see the new tarping that was placed on the garlic fields. That plot also known as "Plot 1" is now approximately 95% tarped and planted with cool weather crops. The tarps help minimize the amount of weeding that needs to be done as well as traps the water in the soil to minimize the need for watering. Using large berms of earth that are covered also insures that the warmed earth keeps the plants warm long after the sun sets on our sometimes chilly Smoky Mountain nights.

Recently the website got a facelift. A cleaner, and easier to use version of the website was release. As part of that redevelopment we took the time to rewrite and refocus the "About Us" section of our website. Making our mission as a educational urban farming system more clear, and more concise.
