Thank you for an AMAZING Season

We want to thank everyone that has been involved in the farm this year for helping make this our most productive season yet. Our accomplishments this year include harvesting over 5,400 lbs of produce, hosting over 20 interns and regular volunteers, hiring an assistant production manager, educating over 30 students through our Cecil Elementary School Garden Club program, working with 5 high school students through the Youthworks program, delivering vegetables weekly to 11 families through our Community supported agriculture (CSA) progam, starting an herbal CSA,  attending a new farmers market, selling to local restaurants, creating a cookbook, and hosting our first ever cooking classes.

This year we continued to expand our production allowing us to increase our yields and provide more fresh produce to the community. We added 8 new rows to our St. Ann's site and increased our growing intensity allowing us to reach our sales and harvest goals. Each year we are able to improve our efficiency and learn new techniques helping us work towards creating a sustainable farm business. Through grant funding we were able to subsidize the cost of our produce to community members and people receiving nutrition benefits allowing us to sell our produce at our weekly farm stand at an affordable price. We were also able to purchase a tool shed which will cut down on a significant amount of travel between the office and the farm allowing us to spend more time working on growing great produce.

As many of you are aware we had an independent developer place a bid on our 21st street lot putting us in danger of losing about 25% of the space we are currently growing on. Thank you to everyone who signed our petition and showed your support of the farm. We were able to place a counter bid on the land and are now waiting to hear the outcome. During this time we can still use all the support we can get. Please consider donating to the farm during this holiday season to help us secure the rest of the land we are growing on and provide support to continue to expand our production and programming. For online donations visit ourwebsite and use the paypal link under the donate tab or send checks to Boone Street Farm, 2701 St. Lo Dr, Baltimore MD 21213.

Look out for information about 2016 programming and how to join our 2016 CSA early next year. We hope everyone has a happy holiday season and New Year!

  2. HOW I GOT MY LOAN (Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com)!!!

    My Name is Nicole Marie, I live in USA and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now and i really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life, As i am a struggling mum with two kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my husband encountered a terrible accident last two weeks, and the doctors stated that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again and i could not afford the bills for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that i have no credit card, from there i ran to my father and he was not able to help me, then when i was browsing through yahoo answers i came across a God fearing man (Mr Martinez Lexie) who provides loans at an affordable interest rate and i have been hearing about so many scams on the Internet mostly Africa, but at this my desperate situation, i had no choice than to give it an attempt due to the fact that the company is from United State of America, and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $82,000.00 USD and i payed for my husband surgery and thank GOD today he is ok and can walk, my family is happy and i said to myself that i will shout to the world the wonders this great and God fearing Man Mr Martinez Lexie did for me and my family; so if anyone is in genuine and serious need of a loan do contact this GOD fearing man via Email: ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ) or through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958 thanks
