Bee Heaven Farm is growing!

After 10 years, Farmer Margie Pikarsky has outgrown the little shade house where she and her crew plant seeds and start growing seedlings. The little shade house doesn’t have much room to work for three people. It’s made of wood and plastic sheeting, is overgrown and falling apart. Many more seedlings are growing outside on stands made from wooden pallets, under the dappled shade of a royal poinciana tree. The pallets are falling apart too, in the tropical rain and heat. There’s a limited amount of space to meet the increasing demand for organic seedlings.

Margie wants — and needs — a new professional greenhouse. The one she has her eye on is 90 feet long and 60 feet wide. On one side, seedlings and starts will grow on metal stands (that won’t rot), and tender plants will grow directly in the ground on the other side. But something like that doesn’t come cheap. So Farmer Margie is turning to you — her faithful customers and CSA members — for financial assistance.

All the details on the project are posted on Bee Heaven Farm’s fundraising page. New video updates will be posted both there and on this blog. Help the farm grow! Give what you can!
