Sustainable Plant Nursery
Grant Award: $6,000
Chip has established a sustainable, low-tech plant nursery to produce naturally grown plants for sale and to offer workshops on growing food, medicinal plants, organic farming, including livestock and homesteading skills.
Chip added a 12′ x 24′ solar and wood heated greenhouse, along with a 12′ x 24′ multi-use potting and workshop shed with picnic tables to use for outdoor workshops.
With over 40 years of experience in the horticulture and agriculture industry, Chip aspires to impart his vast knowledge and skills to others with interest in growing, making and using plant medicine, growing heirloom varieties and developing homesteading skills.
Sugartown Farm and Nursery will be the only family farm in Caldwell County to provide educational agritourism opportunities.
