PASA Sustainable Agriculture at Saul Agricultural HS
www.pasafarming.org

PASA provides education and resources for farmers working in harmony with natural ecosystems.  Our grant will enable them to demonstrate how to increase the productivity of the existing orchard at Saul HS by installing vegetable crops and woody stem crops between the rows of fruit trees, and how to extend the season with both early (asparagus, ramps, rhubarb) and late (Asian pears, paw paws, winterberry) crops.  The produce is used in the school cafeteria and is sold at the CSA Farm Store.
