Preparations for Spring planting take place throughout Autumn and Winter.
The 14 acre venue allows groups and individuals to farm and learn collaboratively or to manage a patch of land as their own.
The organic compost used to fertilize crops requires frequent turning and replenishing. Paper shred is often added as a recycled base.
Groups who can provide vocational training in the use of farm machinery are able to practice these skills at OASIS Farm.
General building and grounds maintenance is ongoing at OASIS.
Learning to care for crops is an important activity throughout the growing season.
Harvest time is a much anticipated and “tasty” learning experience at OASIS.
Paper firebricks and other salable shred products are the outgrowth of the document shredding done at OASIS year round.
