Golden Earthworm Farm
In the darkest days of the winter it is easy to forget the bounty of Summer. Many members of the Sea Cliff community have been preparing the Kinder-garden for planting season, some classrooms have begun to compost their food scraps whille others carefully nestled bulbs in the earth. We can start looking for signs of Spring in early March when the paper-whites and other early bloomers make their initial magical appearance. I've been planning my vegetable garden and spending time with the White Flower Farm seed catalogue. Now is also the time to sign up for a share in a CSA (community supported agriculture). Golden Earthworm Farm on the east end of Long Island has a wonderful website with lots of activities for children and a drop off point at Roots Restaurant in downtown Sea Cliff.
