The rooster crows and our summer crew heads out to the field to begin harvest for the week. Thursday we’ll bring our vegetables to market at APU, where student farmers will sell their product and practice direct marketing. More fresh produce will go straight to the dining hall, where kitchen staff will use it to prepare delicious, seasonal meals. A portion of everything we grow at Spring Creek Farm also goes directly to those in need. We help address hunger in our community by serving the elderly, homeless youth, and the most food insecure, and linking the growing experience of students to food access, and food system resilience.
By growing food, and growing farmers, Spring Creek Farm works to strengthen the Alaskan Food System. Food can bring the community together, and we welcome students and alumni to come get involved in a number of ways. Students can join us for onsite practicum in ecological horticulture, and full season farm internships. Supporters can help us grow food, farming, and sustainability programing by purchasing a CSA share- a weekly subscription of vegetables grown by our student farmers, or stop the market on Thursdays and pick up some of our fresh, delicious, Alaska grown produce there- ask for Megan! Also, keep your eyes open for potlucks, workshops, and events!
