Spring is a busy season at UTC. Between finishing high tunnel and rainwater catchment construction, building the washing pavilion, and preparing all of the gardens for spring planting, you’d hardly know we’re still in the middle of winter. And this spring, we’re adding another two beehives to the farm to pollinate crops, teach kids about insect-ecosystem relationships, and produce golden, treatment-free West Philly honey!
Despite the recent cold temperatures, crops are still growing (spinach, lettuce, kale, collards, carrots), and production space is expanding with the construction of the high tunnel. Photos by Sue Witte.
