River Road Gardens
The biodynamic farm is a classroom at Tucson Waldorf School
News from the Farm – March & April 2013
There are blossoms on the wee small apple trees that we planted with our 3rd grade class. The cottonwood tree is nearly fully leafed out, the yet naked mesquite trees around the campus are swollen and ready to burst with new life. The onions have taken root and are growing, the potatoes have emerged from the dark downy earth. We are as busy as bees trying to keep up with the pace of spring.
You are invited to come to the farm anytime and lend a hand. We always welcome the community’s hands in farming opportunities like thinning beets and carrots or weeding – some of our crops need your help to avoid being crowded out. We will also be seeding summer squash, cucumber, and melons.
Feed the Soil – Fill our Biobin with your Kitchen Scraps
Recycle your compostable kitchen waste in our Biobin located on the south east corner of the River Bend campus parking lot. You can pick up a kitchen composting container from River Road Gardens for only $10. Your kitchen scraps reduce waste and are used to create nutrient rich soil for our beds.
Eggs, Goat Cheese and Barrio Bread:
- We have eggs available -fed organic soy and corn-free feed along with a healthy serving of our greens. $5.50 per dozen.
- Chiva Risa Goat Cheese shares may be made available upon request.
- We offer fresh Barrio Bread Wednesdays from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. Come early for the best selection.
