What happens to our raised bed veggies in the snow? The snow will insulate winter crops from freezing temperatures and protect them until harvest. A killing frost or freeze will do more damage to winter vegetables than snow.

Crops in our raised beds like Carrots, turnips, radishes, Swiss chard, and head lettuce can be harvested from under a blanket of snow. Plants also respond to the cold by converting their starches to sugars so our veggies are a bit sweeter in the winter.

We are so grateful for your support and can’t wait for another season with you all!

Today we have a match for all donations to the JK Community Farm, which means you can double your impact! https://www.facebook.com/donate/1057700421674599/

Last year during Giving Tuesday, the Farm raised $180,000, and that funding allowed us to grow the equivalent of $1.3 million worth of produce and protein for food pantries in our region. This year our goal is to raise $500,000 to diversify our crops and offer a larger variety of fruits, vegetables and protein – and to feed more people.

11/29/2021

Tomorrow is GivingTuesday and we have a match for all donations from JK Moving Services. Join us in doubling your donation to provide hundreds of thousands of lbs of healthy food to our local food pantries.

Food insecurity and insufficient access to healthy foods have been associated with negative health outcomes, including an increased vulnerability for micronutrient deficiencies and a higher probability of developing chronic diseases. Join us on @givingtuesday to ensure our community in need had access to the foods their bodies need to thrive.

11/27/2021

In 2021, with the hard-work of over 4,800 volunteers, we have been able to donate over 220,000lbs of produce and protein to food pantries throughout our region. On Giving Tuesday, will you join us in fundraising to grow more in 2022?

People are truly amazing, this morning it was 25degrees out. The farm was frozen, and 100 individual volunteers ages 1-80 filled our parking lot to prepare the farm for winter and harvest 4244.1 lbs of cabbage, broccoli, kale, lettuce, Swiss chard, beets, radishes, onions, and spinach so that our local food pantries have healthy food for thanksgiving.
We are immensely grateful, and will never stop being in awe of our volunteer community 🥰 Thank you all!

Our Sound Stage (JK/K) friends enjoyed their holiday at the JK Community Farm today picking various vegetables; feeding, petting, and holding chickens; and identifying herbs before enjoying a picnic together! The food grown at the JK Community Farm is picked by food pantry partners for immediate distribution. Harvests are picked up daily to ensure the food is reaching families as fresh as possible. We are so proud to be a part of this great cause, and thank you to the Macpherson family for inviting us!
Mobile Hope's first harvest of golden beets, red beets, radishes and kale from our bio-intensive raised beds courtesy of our deep partnership with Google! Our staff, clients and volunteers spent last Thursday at JK Community Farm picking and packing vegetables for delivery into neighborhoods on Friday through #ListenfortheHonk. Farm to bus to table within 24 hours...and for several of our clients, it was their first time picking vegetables. Thanks WDVM for highlighting the partnership this summer. #foodinsecurity #homelessprevention #fairfaxcounty #loudouncounty #farmtofork
