Growing the Revolution Garden at Rogue Farms

Never content to rest on our laurels, we’ve decided we want to grow more — and in order to do that, we need some more space.

Back in 2016, when we were planning for the 2017 garden, we realized that the current location of the Revolution Garden just didn’t fit all our big ideas.

Planning for the Revolution Garden (don’t worry, we’re better farmers than artists)

In case its not already obvious, we’re consumed by our passion for farming, growing our own ingredients and challenging ourselves in the process. We chose another plot of land at Rogue Farms in Independence and we’ve begun building raised beds for our new ingredients.

We’re using cedar boards for the garden beds. Not only is the color rich and the scent penetrating, cedar doesn’t need to be weather treated and it is very durable, lasting 8-10 years.

One down, 22 to go

You can feel the hum of excitement around the farm as we get ready for spring. Soon we’ll be getting ready to split hives and replace aging queens in our apiary.
