Wild Ginger Farm is a queer and woman run regenerative farm in Central New York State co-owned by me and my wife. We grow a variety of open pollinated vegetables, herbs, berries, and eggs for our local community on ¼ acre. Environmental stewardship is at the core of our mission and our growing practices prioritize soil regeneration, land conservation, and the integration of native plants to bring in pollinators, beneficial birds and insects, and support wildlife. We will be using this grant money to buy in high quality compost for a variety of crops as well as materials needed to protect the 14 garlic varieties that we grow from the new invasive pest the allium leaf miner. We are very grateful to the National Young Farmers Coalition and the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation for supporting small local farms!
