On October 9th, 2021, community volunteers from the Olathe area helped plant the very first trees in the new Farmstead Eight orchard (check out pictures of the day at the bottom of this page!). These trees, which are part of our new community garden project, will start to bear fruit in just a couple of years, and will produce 200-300lbs of produce each growing season once they've matured!
This orchard would not be possible without the participation and generosity of those in our community who have and will contribute with donations of their time, efforts and financial gifts. If you are interested in sponsoring the planting and maintaining of our orchard, your financial gifts will help us to grow our orchard for years to come.
You may make your donation online through our giving page (choose Farmstead Eight from the "Fund" dropdown) or drop off or mail a check to the office at Heritage, noting Farmstead Eight in the memo line. Thank you!
GARDEN WITH US!
If you'd like to become part of the awesome team that cares for our
trees and plans out our new garden beds next season, please reach out! You can contact Darren Mattheson here about getting involved. We can't wait to use this land to cultivate community in our little corner of the world.
