Seeding & Sprouting

Tomato seedlings sprouting up.  You can keep up with us on instagram @goodheartfarmstead.  And get a taste of these tomatoes when they’re full grown when you Become a CSA Member and share in the bounty all summer long.

Growing has begun at Good Heart!

It’s happening: tomatoes and peppers are sprouting up from the soil, and onions, leeks, and herbs are on their way.  I love this time of year: when the scent of potting soil fills the air, when we set our days to the rhythms of seeding and watering.
Spring temperatures are on their way this week, and though I won’t go so far as to predict and early spring, I will invite it with all my might.  At this point, my hopes for a nice ski through the woods has shifted into dreams of seedlings and sunny spring days.

As we approach the summer harvest season, we are looking for a handful of CSA members to become part of a CSA Core Group.  What’s a Core Group?  It’s 4-8 members who meet a few times a year with the goal of strengthening the CSA by increasing transparency between the farm and it’s members, by helping grow the CSA membership, and helping the farm meet its mission of increasing local food to low-income Vermonters.

The core group will meet twice this spring, ideally once at the end of March, and again at the end of April, and each member will commit 10 hours over the course of the season to core group work.  This year, we envision the main goal of the core group as increasing CSA membership by tapping into new networks and being “Good Heart Representatives” to help us strengthen the CSA community and the many ways local food and CSA benefits individuals, families, and the community as a whole.

If you are interested in being a Core Group member, please email us at  

On that note, we invite you to join us for another season of fresh, local food that feeds both our families and our community!  Now is a great time to sign up for your 2016 CSA membership.

We wish you a healthy & happy week!

In Good Heart,
Katie and Edge
