Hello again! 

Another beautiful week has gone by. Last week was a special one because it consisted of all the longest days of the year, with Summer Solstice being in the middle on Thursday.

Not only do the days feel long and warm, but we are experiencing signs of the sun in many other ways around the farm. Carrots are finally filling out and shouldering out of the earth, so we had our first carrot harvest of the season on Wednesday! We have also been over the moon about all the seasonal bursts of colour found on flowers and veg around the farm, and have taken a particular interest in edible flowers. To celebrate Solstice, our student Farm Hand Mikaela made salad wraps with all the warm coloured vegetables we harvested for the Wednesday market. See featured recipe on how to make your own!

Loutet Farm internships!

We are looking for some lovely, hard working individuals who want to taste a piece of what urban agriculture is really like.

Summer Camps:

This summer Loutet Farm will have half-day and full-day summer sessions available for children and youth. Our programming will explore the biodiversity of plants and insects on the farm. We have programs for those interested in crafting with flowers, and plants found on the farm, and programs for those interested in studying the insects responsible for keeping our plants healthy (and those responsible for eating our plants!). 

Coming up:


1. July 21st, 1pm: Beekeeping 102 – Integrated Pest Management with Brian Campbell 

2. July 25th, 5:30: Seed Saving 101– Curcubits with Michael Denhamer
