“Black Gold” at the Farm…

Matt Joy and his crew delivered 60 cubic yards of wonderful compost this morning at the Farm.  Cultivated at Longwood Plantation in Newington, Georgia, this filtered compost has been the proven secret ingredient for successful harvests in the Farm’s first two years!

Farmers arrived at 7:00 in the morning to begin moving their compost via wheelbarrow to their plots.  The steam that rose from the pile in the parking lot was testimony that the microbes that were still at work in the mix…a good sign that this compost would supply much needed nutrients to plants and sub-soil alike.

It was quite a bit of work… but oh, so very worth it!  Thanks to Matt Joy for organizing this project.  (9/15/12)
