Towards the end of 2016, we have started to contemplate about what our resolutions are for next year. Here are some of the things on our agenda to improve Blueboots Farm and to make what we do more impactful.
Improve farm capacity At the farm, we have been discussing about how we can fully maximize the capacity of the farm. Whether that would be through making better composts and fertilizer; as well as building more infrastructure for effective farming. The idea is basically to improve our techniques to increase productivity and quality of the produce.
More farm events From running our Farmseries01, we realize how impactful it is to actually bring people the farm. Blueboots Farm is planning to hold more farm events to attract more people so lots more can get hands on experience on farming. To educate and connect to where and how food came about would be one of our main resolutions for 2017.
More fresh produce In 2017, we are hoping to intensify and diversify the produce of the farm. Hopefully we can produce more exciting local and sustainable products and share them to the market. Therefore local plants would be more appreciated and get their well-deserved popularity.
Attract young farmers What we realize from running Blueboots Farm is also that there are not so many young people interested in agriculture. There are a bunch of people that we know, who are so into it, but lots of our other friends haven’t been exposed much to farming and how their food is produced. By attracting more people to get into farming (even small urban farming will make lots of difference!), we hope that we can breed more young farmers to make changes in the community.
Have fun Take more challenges and just have fun! Farming is never an easy job even for us. There are many challenges and learning curves that we had, but those things didn’t stop us to go further. We simply enjoy our time at the farm and sharing our values to the community, which keep us going. Nevertheless, we will not forget to have fun and enjoy our time with our farmers and friends.
