Thank you Terraforma Church💚

As we gather around a table full of family and food tomorrow, let’s give thanks to JK Community Farm which makes it possible for even the most vulnerable of families to do the same. Because of JK Community Farm and it’s volunteers, Loudoun County residents facing food insecurity will have nutritious and organic produce and protein sources again this Thanksgiving!

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!

This season we hosted a few incredible interns who developed what we encourage as intern “passion projects”, our interns research a project that they are interested in and believe will make a sustainable impact on our mission, they fundraise for the project and set it in motion.
Projects included things such as a 3 tier composting system, and the installation of water meters to track the water usage of each plot throughout the season. We are amazed by these awesome students, and their impact on our community.

As we begin to wrap up our season, we get a lot of questions about how we spend our winter…while there are a few cold tolerant varieties (like kale) that will continue to grow, we spend our winter fundraising as much as we can so that we can grow to serve our food pantry partners the following season. The more funding we raise, the greater access to healthy food we can provide to our community in need. Would you like to join us?

Congrats to Loudoun Laurel awardees Punkin Lee and Chuck Kuhn! Punkin was selected for her years of community service to Town of Middleburg and Loudoun County, and Chuck for having permanently protected thousands of acres in Loudoun through conservation easements and for supporting local food pantries with an abundance of locally grown food from the JK Community Farm.

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
