2015 Farm Reflections

January 11, 2016

Thanks to our great student staff and Antioch community, we have had many successes on the Antioch in 2015. Following are some fun ones to share. Curricular Ties

Seed Saving and Stewardship

November 02, 2015

By Elaine Bell ’16 As mornings grow darker and afternoons heighten with a crisp scent in the air, the Antioch Farm approaches autumn by seeding winter crops, planting garlic, and harvesting the end of summer’s bounty.

June in bloom

June 26, 2014

By Charlotte Pulitzer ’16 Every year, spring’s energy seems to come in like a tidal wave. In the blink of an eye, comfry, sorrel, gooseberry and daffodils fill up the food forest, and thistle and dandelion always get a head start on us. After a cold, cold winter here in Yellow Springs, we were especially happy to see our fruit trees and perennials bud out in time for Admitted Students Weekend and Reunion 2014.
