We had an amazingly productive day here on farm today, thanks to a crew of staff from JP Morgan Chase who took the day off from work to help us make sure we have a strong fall harvest this year! With there help we tilled some newly available garden beds and planted baby mixed greens, watered each garden bed by hand with a special fish emulsion fertilizer, separated our strawberry plants and gave them mulch to make it through the fall and winter, and even took cuttings of sedum flowers to spread to areas of our walkways that had gotten thinned out due to the drought. All of these little acts of care on our rooftop farm will bring us a healthy harvest to distribute to residents in the building through the end of October. Today was a global volunteer day at JP Morgan Chase, and we can only imagine what else they made happen across the globe with their powerful teams.
