Pam Jones and Sarah Waybright met when working as farm apprentices at Potomac Vegetable Farm in Vienna, VA. They found a shared passion in sustainable agriculture, cooking and a desire to teach others about how to take their health and the health of the planet into their own hands.

We are getting lots done around here on the farm, in spite of many inches of rain over the past few days. It makes for muddy work but the worms are pretty dang happy… Pam, who wears an above average-sized boot, found this xxl worm today.

A sweet snow pup picture is the best way to formally introduce the newest member of the GSF team, and Norman’s new pup-patrol partner in crime, Vallon! Pam and Rob were delighted to re home Vallon with the help of @ridgesidek9_llc.

He has already settled right in to life on the farm, and is always delighted to meet farm guests, run circles around the garden at full speed and pose for cute photos.

Imagine making dinner tonight with THIS. This is just one example of a CSA delivery from last summer. Each week, our CSA members get a box like this to take home and serve their families.

If that looks like fun, then CSA may be right for you. We’re celebrating #CSAWeek all this week. It's the most popular week of the year to sign up for a CSA farm membership.

What would you cook with this? Beets, turnips, scallions, swiss chard, lacinato kale, fennel, microgreens and fresh sage and thyme... Comment below!

One of the best parts of being in our farm’s CSA is the “mad skills” you’ll learn about how to cook our veggies. Our community will help you discover fast and easy ways to eat and preserve a huge variety of veggies so that you stop wasting food and feel like a kitchen master.

This week is is National #CSAWeek. Now through Feb. 26, farmers around the country are promoting their CSA membership and encouraging farm lovers to get behind a specific farmer for one season. If you are local to the Northern VA area and want to join our farm this year and get a weekly box of veggies, head to https://www.gatheringspringsfarm.com/2022-csa-sign-up

If you are not local, get on the googles and find yourself a local farmer who you can support. Know where your food comes from and join the movement to EAT LOCAL!

Wow. Someone from our CSA farm membership made this from our veggies!⁠

Does this make you drool? ⁠

One of the things I love about our CSA is seeing what our members make every day with our food. This is stuffed delicata squash w/rice, onion, thyme, mushroom, and garlic, on a bed of arugula... If you’ve ever thought about joining our thriving farm community and getting a weekly share of our veggies, NOW is the time to join.⁠

This week is National #CSAWeek -- during this time, farmers from around the country are banding together to promote CSA. Join our CSA today and start taking some delicious pictures like this one! To learn more, go to: https://www.gatheringspringsfarm.com/2022-csa-sign-up

Do you know your farmer (part 2)?⁠

I’m Sarah and I am also one of the farmers who wants to grow your food! We started Gathering Springs Farm with the following mission at its heart: Healthy soils = healthy food = healthy people. ⁠

I am a Registered Dietitian and am passionate about working with people who want to maximise the health benefits they can get out of their food. ⁠

As a member of our CSA, you get more than just wonderful fresh vegetables each week, you also get our weekly CSA newsletter which contains recipes, storage instructions and facts about the food we are sending out, as well as a chance to come out to the farm to see it being grown! ⁠

We also have the option to opt out up to 3 times in the season (yay...vacations!) and have an online member portal where you can manage all this. ⁠

This week is #CSAWeek and its the time to get yourself signed up: https://www.gatheringspringsfarm.com/2022-csa-sign-up

Are your kids healthy eaters?

When Pam became a mum (she is English don't you know?!), she knew one of her job's was to create healthy eating habits from the start. No soda or juice. No processed food. Lots of veggies. Pam's son Harry is 2 years old, and some days it is a struggle to get him to eat ANYTHING! But each day he is more and more interested in healthy farm-grown food, especially if he gets to go out to the field and pick it himself!

We hope our CSA farm members experience the same success with their own kids. Healthy eating habits start at a young age! Surround your kids with all kinds of vegetables. It is a gift you are giving them.

Do you know your farmer?

I’m Pam, one of the farmers from Gathering Springs Farm. I know what it feels like when you don’t know where your food comes from. It’s one of the reasons I decided to farm. I don’t just farm because I love to grow vegetables. I do this because I want to help my neighbors reconnect with their food.

I want people to know the hand that feeds them.

This week, we’re celebrating National #CSAWeek. It's the most popular week of the year to sign up for a CSA farm membership. CSA farmers across the country (including us!) need your support now for a successful harvest this year.

Will you join our farm? In doing so, you’ll get a weekly share of veggies from the fields and the chance to make something truly delicious in your kitchen. (Plus you’re supporting a local farmer!)

It’s amazing to see the beautiful variation in shell color that our chickens produce. These kind of “anomalies” would be pulled and likely discarded in industrial egg operations. Yet another reason to eat local and support your small farmer. Less waste, less miles from field to fork.

As we sit here in the depths of winter, with hazy plans for the coming season drifting in and out of our brains, looking back on another year and recognising the successes and failures of a time we poured ourselves into.

Finally catching our breath between the waves of an exacting but beautiful dance with Mother Nature, whilst being Mother to beautiful but exacting children.

Feelings of excitement of spring and dirty fingernails, the first taste of a sun warmed tomato straight off the vine conflicting the need for more time, more rest, more space to mother and hibernate and stay indoors.

But damn, if this doesn’t make me gaze in wonderment of the journey we have been on over the last 4 years.

Thanks for joining us on this journey so far!

Harry is mighty grateful for all the pumpkins dropped off with @worm_works and @foodloopcompost - his chickens are already loving the treats! If anyone has in-carved pumpkins that they want to see go to a good cause and not just fill up the landfill, get in touch about dropping them off on the farm for our creatures to turn into delicious eggs!

Meet the farmers...

Sarah Waybright and Pam Jones are friends and farmers who together founded and run Gathering Springs Farm.

They met in 2017 whilst working at the local stalwart sustainable farm, Potomac Vegetable Farms. They were both working at PVF for similar reasons, to learn more about where their food comes from and how it should be grown for optimum health. But they both had very different journeys getting there...

Sarah grew up on a dairy farm in Pennsylvania and earned her Bachelor’s degree at Franklin & Marshall College in 2006, a Master of Science (MS) in Human Nutrition at Drexel University in 2010, and a dietetic internship through Utah State University’s distance program to become a Registered Dietitian (RD). A longtime DC resident, she has been featured by many Washington media outlets, including the Washington Post, The Express, DCRefined, WUSA9 and as a regular contributor to ABC7’s Good Morning Washington. She’s also been featured by local bloggers including fANNEtastic Food, Boderstan, and LadiesDC and health websites including The Active Times and SheKnows. She has appeared as a guest on the podcasts Foodie & the Beast, Beautiful Life Self Care, and RD Real Talk.

It was Sarah’s love for food, cooking and learning that lead her to farming, firstly as market staff at 78 Acres Farm and then as a farm apprentice at Potomac Vegetable Farms.
