Krokowski set up the farm from scratch seven years ago. It’s right next door to the Ploughshares Nursery. You can see it from Main Street, but the entrance is at 2600 Barbers Point Road.
The program is called Farm2Market, and it provides individuals with a list of job skills. The program sells produce on a subscription basis, and the proceeds are plowed back into it.
Coming up on October 18, the Collaborative is holding its annual Harvest Festival. The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and all are welcome!
