9 Jan 2016 ~ Farm 85

Before we created this community garden, we visited many other community gardens. When we asked them where they get their vegetable seeds or seedlings from, many would say, “Go to Farm 85! You can get 100s of seedlings for only like $5.”

This was the first time we finally made a trip to Farm 85. Apart from an address, there was nothing else online to show that this farm exists. We decided to go and get some vegetable seedlings, so that we have nice big vegetables by Chinese New Year. The growing period would have taken longer if we start from seeds.

There’s no shop, you just approach one of the farm staff and tell them what you want.

While we were there, we met some ladies from another community garden. They came prepared with a table where different neighbours had made their orders for different vegetables! Seems like they are regulars.

Once we got our vegetable seedlings and packs of soil, we headed straight back to our edible garden to put the seedlings in.
