As part of our Bring Back the Bees partnership with the Burt’s Bees Greater Good Foundation, we’re working with a group of farmers this year to establish significant areas of pollinator-friendly plants on their farms to sustain bees and other pollinators. We’re excited to have Hickory Meadows Organics as a participant in the project. We also appreciate their willingness to let us use their farm as a living, natural laboratory to experiment with incorporating these types of crops onto working farmland.

The Eastern Triangle Farm Tour is happening this weekend! The event runs from 1 to 5 PM on Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th. Our friends at Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA) have been instrumental in promoting the local farms of the Triangle through these tours over the past 10 years. We are happy to add that several of the farms on the tour this weekend are recipients of an Agricultural Reinvestment Fund grant from our organization.
