What is Tay's Farm?

The three key components of Tay’s are:

  • physical resource assistance

  • education programming

  • commercialization assistance

 

Tay's Farm, an ENA membership program, is dedicated to supporting growers with a resources.  We are actively developing a workshop schedule and assessing needs to cater to both beginners and experienced growers, aiming to enhance their skills and knowledge.​ Physical resource assistance programming will include the construction of teaching gardens, community compost piles, seed and cutting giveaways, and help with the installation of homesteading infrastructure in qualifying residents’ yards. The ENA will also fold The ToolBox (a tool sharing program we have operated for many years) into Tay’s, so residents can borrow garden tools.

 

Education programming will be carried out in conjunction with Kalamazoo Valley Community College, and local experts. Education programs will be available to the Kalamazoo community on a sliding pay scale. Program participants will receive instruction in growing produce at home for the entire possible growing season. Education programs will also teach participants how to preserve food, and how to save seeds for future plantings.
