**The rescheduled January Membership Meeting is this Saturday 1/25 from 1pm-3pm at the Ann Arbor Rudolf Steiner High School. See the Events page for agenda items**
The Community Farm of Ann Arbor has come to a time in its journey that it needs to take a fallow year to regenerate and reform. During this chrysalis year, the land will rest and be replenished with pasture rotation, extra compost and cover crops, but will not support a vegetable CSA. There will be many ways to continue to connect with the community and support the farm during this year including: monthly membership meetings, potlucks, volunteer work parties, study groups, and outreach events. We are currently searching for a farmer to carry on the CSA in such a way that is fulfilling for both them and the community. If you are interested in helping sustain the farm and be part of its future, attending the January Membership Meeting noted above is a great place to start.
The Community Farm of Ann Arbor is looking for a farmer to lead an established community devoted to biodynamic agriculture as soon as possible.
The Community Farm of Ann Arbor is a 30-year old biodynamic CSA (community supported agriculture project) which has been in its current location in Chelsea, MI for 25 years serving the greater Ann Arbor area. It encompasses a supportive community of about 60 member families who enjoy celebrating the gifts of the earth and community, 7 acres of cultivated fields, a 20-acre hay field, pasture, 2 heritage barns (that have housed cows and goats), a chicken coop, bees in an apiary, several tractors (including a solar tractor) with implements, a greenhouse and cold frames.
We are looking for a devoted biodynamic farmer to begin no later than early spring 2021, who can feed the member families while caring for the regenerative health of the earth, manage day to day finances, and help maintain the farm as a center of well-being.
If you are interested please send a letter of introduction and description of experience, intention, and contact information to:
If you have questions you can call Karen at 734-475-7451.
Biodynamic Agriculture works in harmony with the natural world to leave the soil and the entire farm ecosystem healthier year after year.
The wide variety of produce grown is nutrient dense, trace mineral rich, and flavor saturated.
The community supporting this Sacred Agriculture is vibrant, creative, supportive, educationally focused and economically diverse.
All things grow with love!
