This past spring, the Farm Hub began growing melons (watermelons, cantaloupe, and a Charentais-type specialty melon) inspired by feedback from colleagues working in the emergency food system. Our production team also used this opportunity to experiment with growing melons in a no-till system.
Month: December 2021
Over the course of the 2021 season, we grew a variety of vegetables, field crops, and cover crops across the farm. Production included edible dry beans, small grains, spring canola, and corn varieties produced for community food initiatives including tortilla trials.

A busy season at the farm including welcoming new staff in finance and human resources. Our Community Food team staff began selling flour and beans at the Kingston Farmers Market. Staff joined Soul Fire Farm for a work day and a day of cultural exchange. “The Wonder of the Bobolink” screened at the Princeton Environmental Film Festival.
How can a farm be of service to its community? Ag Education Manager Sara Katz uses Grow Well Kingston as a platform to tell stories of the various community initiatives that the collective encompasses.
