We practice sustainability at the farm. Crop rotation, use of drip irrigation and re-using the flower water each week are some of the ways we are being kind to the earth.
As of March 11th we are sold out for our coming season of harvest boxes. If you are interested in joining us for 18 weeks of our beautiful flower share, please email Lorrie at shadymaplefarmcsa@gmail.com. We have 3 flower shares for the season available.

Our harvest boxes are on Tuesdays with pickup between 4:00 - 6:00 pm at the Farm. 8005 Portland Rd. N.E. Salem, Oregon.

Planting Day March 5

My niece Anna and her young man prepare holes to drop seeds.

Additional helpers enjoy the warmth of the greenhouse. In the back corner, my sister Lisa, nearest to the front is my friend Mary, 2nd from the left is my mother in law, Mary, in purple is my cousin Faith. Lots of seeds spread out on the table to plant. Chatter with family is fun, occasional rain on the greenhouse roof. 

My great niece who lives at The Farm, has been helping! Look at those farmgirl hands.

This plethora of seeds await planting.  

Florencio fills up seed starting flats with a soilless, sterile seed starting mix. He wets the mix as part of the mix repels moisture so it needs to be pre-watered.

Dirt movers at work. :)

Tiny coleus seeds.
