It’s June! Thank you for joining the Red Clay farm team.
Many thanks to Tom Young, Keelin Jack, Krista Holman, Silas & Hilda Hanavan and Raina Young who all helped out in the gardens this past month of May.
From mounding zucchinis, to pinching beatles, to bindweed unweaving, it was a beautiful, warmer than seasonal month that got us thinking seriously about trying to grow cherry trees.

Clare will be journalling some of her work at the farm to share the work laughter and tears that goes grows the food we eat.
Thank the stars for April. Far from the cruelest month, April’s been a lovely lul before the furious storm of activity, though we’ve been busy: putting walls on the barn, strimming poles for the new green house, tilling the garden, hoeing the rows and turning the compost, fixing up the hen house, tending to the thousands of baby plants and as of yesterday the 40 temporarily tiny “meat-king” chicks.
Catie Doucette a veteran in the Red Clay gardens has been working her magic on the land again this month and for her we are truly truly grateful.
The White Rabbit project can be found at it’s web home: www.whiterabbitarts.ca
The White Rabbit Art Project is a micro artist’s residency in the spirit of a summer camp. The project invites 16 artists from all disciplines to spend a week working on installations at Red Clay, an art farm in Upper Economy, Nova Scotia. The White Rabbit Festival invites the public to camp out, explore the installations, and enjoy epic music and art presentations.
White Rabbit is an project run by the Red Clay Studio Society, a not-for-profit organization, separate and distinct from the residencies offered through Red Clay Gardens’ Honey and Salt 2016 program.
This year we are reaching wide and far to offer as many opportunities as possible. We are launching several new initiatives as well as old favourites: we’ll be running workshops, a series of independent residency week long residencies, a CSA to bring the good of the garden to Halifax weekly, and our classic weekend work parties.
