Denver Farmer's Market & CSA 2021 Options
Make City Park Farmer's Market part of your play as we'll be on Colfax each Saturday.
Wheter joinging our 10 week CSA from mid-June through August, or just grabbing full biology compost to make your garden the *hottest*, we'll greet you with a smile and listen to your stories. We want to know you even more-ies (sorry not sorry, it rhymes. Ha!)
We grow delicious, highly nutrient dense Microgreens, Mushrooms, and Market Produce. We strive to work with our local community in order to help actualize expressions of Food Sovereignty.
We grow with techniques that sequester more carbon. We grow using a Soil Foodweb focused and Korean Natural Farming skillset so that we require ZERO synthetic chemicals. We hand make all of our farm sourced amendments and all of our amendments are safe enough to eat! We build soil; we do not till it.
We seek out techniques and partners that encourage a circular economy, that divert food waste from landfills, that help protect clean water, and that leverage Nature's most wondrous composters (hello- red wrigglers!)
We believe that Collaboration is more mighty than Competition and focus on spreading the knowledge. When you have and idea for a project- call us!
We are Hugelrado Farms. We show up with shovels when there's work to be done.
Adding 1% organic matter to your soils increases their water holding capacity by 20,000 gallons per acre. Mulching is a great place to start. Keep your carbon (aka: fall leaves & grass clippings) ON your property for your soil's sake! Bonus: beneficial fungi love to munch on mulch!
Bacteria, Fungi, Protozoa, Nematodes, and Micro-arthropods are the heroes of the soil! When their ecosystems are in proper balance, they extract the nutrients locked inside the crystaline structure of the soil so that your plant gets what it needs. No additional fertilizers needed!
97% of food "waste" in the United States winds up in land fills where it turns "anaroebic" (without oxygen,) and releases green house gases. When you Aerobically (with oxygen) compost your wastes, that carbon goes back down into the ground, instead of into our atmosphere.
Fertile soil loss in the United States occurs 10X more quickly than the rate of natural regeneration AND we only have about 60 harvests worth of fertility left in our soils. It didn't take long for us to tear the soils down, and it doesn't have to take long to build them back up again. #GoTeam
80% of a Prarie's Biomass is under the ground where roots travel 15-40 feet deep. The Soil life living on the roots actually eat carbon sugars and put them back into the soil for us. When you focus on your soils, your plant health follows.
News from Hugelrado:
This summer is a great time to transform your lawn into a living garden. This could be an edible garden, an oasis of native plants, a permaculture forest, or some other kind of regenerative land care project...Read more
