First Planting Celebration at The Farm

The chickens were nesting and laying eggs in their new homes. Children were running free in what soon will be corn fields. Some were learning how to plant a potato. Neighbors were meeting for the first time. The day felt good.

The sun came out and the winds died down. Almost 130 folks gathered under a large white tent on Saturday, May 7th for the First Planting Celebration at The Farm.

Sitting on hay bales, sipping sweet tea and lemonade, each family heard the heart and vision behind The Farm from Mike Rusch, one of the founding members of the Cobblestone Project.

The elders of New Heights Church were on hand to pray for this large endeavor and dedicate the land to the needs in Northwest Arkansas.

Families purchased Harvest Share subscriptions and 30 more volunteers signed up to add to the over 200 that have volunteered at The Farm since March.

A special thank you to our partners & sponsors who made this dream become a reality!

 

Amazing things are growing at The Farm – cabbage, sunflowers, and real community.

Won’t you ‘Be the Farmer’ and take part in this beautiful place? You can volunteer and share in the harvest.
