Giving Tuesday at Long Beach Creamery
When we started this farm 7 years ago, we had the simple idea to grow produce and flowers for the people. We had no idea what the bigger picture was - it did not even occur to us that Long Beach was so hungry for a farm. Since those humble beginnings we've produced 1,000's of pounds of produce and taught as just many in our Living Classroom.
This past year has shown us all many challenges. Farming, which is quite arduous in itself, with the addition increased pest pressure, weed management, vandalism, theft and destruction.
This year we are asking for you to help us Rise Up! We've hit the point where we are not beginner farmers anymore. We need to upgrade our equipment, improve infrastructure and make the farm safe once and for all.
The City of Long Beach is partnering up to help us with the electricity which is just the beginning. Security lights, fence improvements, cameras, a refrigerator and equipment upgrades will help us thrive for the next 7+ YEARS!
Thank you for sharing your giving dollars with us and helping secure Farm Lot 59 for the future.
