Happy Winter Holidays everyone out there! Its been a snowy December so far and we are busy bees right now at Healcrest filling holiday orders, taking care of our little hens and keeping our little corner of the world in order over the winter months.
If you havent heard, Healcrest successfully entered an incubator program this November! The Idea Foundry Intersector Program will provide us with 3-4 months of business development support and we are utilizing that time to build new internal structures for farm and product management! We look for 2014 to be a great year for getting Teapops, Teas and a few other choice quality herb-based edibles into your lives! We believe strongly in the quality of our products coming out of Healcrest and are excited to get them into the world. If you have a store, a cafe or somewhere special you would like to see our Teapops or Teas, please dont hesitate to drop us a line!
On that note, the budding partners of Healcrest Urban Farm decided to take some time to build up on our relationships and plan for the coming year by celebrating and working deep in nature. We headed this past weekend to Cook’s Forest for some wintry walks, warm cabin work time and delicious shared meals! In building up a social enterprise that believes in the triple-bottom line of people, planet and profits – we are working to ensure that our values match our business identity and that each move, as we grow, reflects our commitment to the original Garfield lots we sit on and the greater health and wellness of the people we serve everywhere.
Thank you for watching our moves out there and supporting our continued work to bring quality, local foods, urban lot sustainability and community-engagement around food and health!
