Are you interested in learning more about organic gardening? Check back for more updates and green living tips in weeks to come. Our greenhouse will soon have plenty more things growing. You can also take a look at The Frost Valley Farm and Farm Camp, one of our amazing summer programs.
At the beginning of the winter, our greenhouse was given a complete renovation. The plastic has been replaced, and everything inside has been cleaned out. This has allowed us to begin the process of replanting for the upcoming season, and has given some of our staff the chance to improve their understanding of planting and gardening.
Once everything is in place, we hope to start having guests help out in our greenhouse in order to learn more about organic gardening and ‘green’ lifestyle choices that can help in protecting the environment. Although there is nothing growing just yet, it won’t be long before the long beds of fresh soil have small spouts appearing. Stop in on your next trip to the Valley and see what progress we have made!
