What’s in a greenhouse? Well, here on Willie Green’s Organic Farm we have a vast variety of produce growing in our new greenhouses, thanks in part to Whole Foods and their Local Producer Loan program, and also to Jeff Miller’s relentless efforts towards making the farm even better.
An excerpt from Lynnwood Today, posted on February 28th quotes Jeff saying “As one of this year’s recipients, we felt it was important to use the money to start our business earlier in the year. We were able to build five greenhouses. As a result, we already have sugar snap peas that are 5-6 inches tall. We would never have been that far along otherwise”. UPDATE: I just walked through the greenhouses today and those sugar snap peas are now about 6 feet tall!
We are very thankful for Denise Breyley, Regional Local Forager at Whole Foods Market, and the team at WGOF for their extraordinary efforts made to better an already amazing organic farm!
