For those of you new here, we run a multi locational urban farm called @chainreactionurbanfarm. This style of operation has its perks but the one challenge we must always be prepared to deal with is change. This year has been no exception. Here is a post that we just shared with our farm family. . It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to one of our plots this week. This growing space is a bit small, shady, and far from home, and we have parted with land before, but we are feeling a little sentimental about this one because it is the plot that started it all. Five years ago, a kind man offered to share his backyard space with us and we began experimenting with growing our own food. For us, this small gesture was the gateway into urban farming and greater self sufficiency. . The space certainly didn’t look like this in the beginning. That first year, it was absolutely packed with weeds (Photo 2), but it was all the land we had, so we hand dug, chopped, and mulched our way to what would become a very productive and weed free vegetable plot over the next four years. This year, the same owner decided to move and sold the property so we packed up our gear one last time and moved out (Photo 3). Sadly, the new owner will likely cover up the now weed free and fertile soil with a double car garage. Like it or not, there are only so many things within our control. So, like the Littlest Hobo, I guess we’ll just keep moving on. Thankfully, the many lessons we learned here can still be applied as we take our vegetable mastery to another location. .
