The Tenth Acre farm started in a backyard, where large raised beds were constructed. The farm soon expanded onto an unused basketball court at a nearby church. The farmers use a CSA and market stall to disribute their produce.
The raised beds at Tenth Acre at .5 to .75 meters high. It seems likes a lot of soil for a raised-bed vegetable garden. One of the important aspects of these project is the partnership with the church of St. Cecilia – connecting growers with unused space is critical for this types of projects. Because the garden is sited in an old basketball court owned by the church, it was important for this garden to modular. The beds are constructed on site, and the soil can be removed and beds taken apart if the church requires the site for another use in the future.
