The 6+acres in Lutz was owned by the same family since the 40's, so we could determine how the property had been used for over 70 years. We have a lovely farm house that we have renovated keeping much of the original charm and construction on the 2 acre community farm being developed. It has wonderful trees that will not interfere with gardening activities and provide a great "canopy" for our education area. The parent track includes frontage on beautiful Lake Hobbs, one of the cleanest and most popular lakes in the Lutz area.
Read more about our original vision:
Unlike traditional co-op and CSA offerings, our emphasis is on raised-bed gardening, whereby people will be educated and given the opportunity to grow their own food in their own raised-bed at the farm or at their home. We also have several exhibits for growing with hydroponics, hugelculture, microgreens, etc. We are planting a wide variety of fruit trees around the farm for use by all members. We have developed our educational area, greenhouse, composting, hydroponics and large community raised-bed and herb gardens and chicken coop. In 2017 we would like to begin renovating our 2 bedroom bungalow for interns, start our wind/solar exhibit, rainwater collection, goat farm, blueberry project, and experiment gardens.
