My daughter had an awesome time at camp! They cooked, they gardened, made soap and created one of a kind jewelry out of clay. I have already signed all 3 of my kids up for the next one and a few their... friends will be joining them. They ladies are the sweetest and extremely talented. See More

Lucky to be a part of something so awesome in my community. See More

Awesome moments at the farm yesterday during our good bugs class with the little ones.


SMARTS Farm hosted our last class of our little farmers series with 2 First grade classes from UDA yesterday. We reviewed flower anatomy, organic vermicomposting, the importance of knowing good and bad bugs in the garden and most important, the absolute THRILL of harvesting their own food! Next week the students get to show off what they’ve grown with their families. 👨‍🌾 🥕

Our Ms. Rosie kicked off Valentine’s Day this week at the farm with Good Bugs Bad Bugs. The bug scavenger hunt was an absolute blast with our first graders. Truly unique for kiddos to find a wide variety of critters in a short period of time on our urban farm. Farm sampling of fresh grown beets and diakon radish by all.

What are some of the coolest things about red wigglers?
“They don’t have teeth.”
“They live in a worm hotel.”
“They don’t like the sun.”


Question from one little First Grader.
“Do red wigglers eat pig slop?”

First Grade student responses. 😉🌻👨‍🌾🐛

Yesterday we hosted our first 2018 community garden volunteer day and we are thoroughly amazed and touched by the hard work, dedication, and love for our little urban farm.

Check out the little parking lot, fully transformed thanks to Christine, Neven, Ilija, Frank and Bill. Our perimeter is thriving now thanks to Donna, Resi, Kerry, Sali, Daniel and Diane - THANK you! Jeff and Mary - thank you for sweeping our production area - sparkling now! Pam, not only for your consistent weekly love but thank you for tending to all the City Magnolia leaves. Nimesh and Sindana, can’t wait to see your seeds pop. Zoe and Ginger, our farm support dogs kept an eye on all members with love.

And not to forget our farm signs are finally placed - huge thanks to Frank, Ilija and Bill!

Yesterday, SMARTS Farm welcomed e3 Civic High ‘Civic’ students in for a day of volunteering and learning. Students planted Spring seeds, picked weeds, thinned carrots, harvested worm castings, and planted microgreens to name a few. Such a great day around the farm!

Today our first graders wormed their way into the wonderful world of vermicomposting! We just can’t get over how cute the kiddos drawings are — this little worms name is Elly. 🐛

Busy Day around the farm yesterday. Ms. Rozanne taught parts of flower anatomy and how pollination makes the world of urban farming possible. Little ones were released to explore various flowers and to draw their favorites, they planted their garlic and spinach starts, and harvested rainbow carrots, red and green leaf lettuce, mustard and kale. They wait patiently each week for their wonderful farm goodies they planted during their seed to harvest program.. working towards a farm showcase. Humane Smarts
