Crops’ CalendarProduction practices: Among the pioneers of organic certification in the 1990s, the Lien Family Farm has always used organic and ecological farming methods. Seed to Spoon continues this tradition and is working with EcoCert Canada to offer certified organic produce in 2016. Following the Canadian organic regulations, we use only certified organic inputs which includes finished compost, animal manure, kelp, bone meal, and shrimp meal. Our regular soil tests indicate high levels of fertility and organic matter. We only use untreated seeds, which includes saving our own varieties, sourcing organic seed where possible, and prefer to support equitable and local seed companies. Pest and Weed Control: We rely on exceptional plant health to reduce pest and weed problems with our crops. Techniques include crop rotation, row cover, hand cultivation, and compost tea. We use certified organic products which include slug pellets, Bt, and diatomaceous earth. Community Involvement: Seed to Spoon is member of Newfoundland Horticulture Producers Council, Atlantic Canadian Organic Regional Network (ACORN) and St. John’s Farmers Market.
