Bloom Community Farm and The Hope Garden connect our community over the shared joy of growing good food. Through education and agriculture, these feel-good growing spaces help inspire a resilient future for all members of Blaine County.
The Farm is located on 1.5 acres of land that historically was stewarded by the Shoshoni and Bannock people. During the 1870s mining era, they rapidly lost access to traditional food sources, and their lifestyles were disrupted or destroyed. We honor their loss of land and culture through our commitment to stewarding this land for future generations.
To steward the land, we engage in attentive, care-full practices: permanent beds and no tillage, cover crops, mulch, compost, native species incorporation, and only use of certified organic inputs and disease/pest management. We aspire to continued learning and holistic care!
Special thanks to Quigley Farm for generously providing the land for Bloom Community Farm and to Blaine County for The Hope Garden.
Check out our Volunteer for Veggies Program if you’d like to get your hands in the dirt in exchange for a share of fresh, local produce harvested right on site — #V4V will be back in action in May 2020.
In 2019, over 200 Volunteers helped grow and harvest 9,750 pounds of fresh fruits and veggies that filled our food pantry, were cooked up by Bloom Youth Project interns, sold at discounted farm stands, or went home with volunteers themselves. Thanks to everyone who lent a hand. We look forward to farming together again next season! If you are interested in winter volunteer opportunities, please contact Cassi at 208-788-0121 for more information.
Every Wednesday 5:30-7:30 PM Dec 11 2019-April 1 2020 at Flourish Foundation 1030 Airport Way, Hailey
Women’s Group is a diverse, supportive, unforgettable group that meets weekly to cultivate friendships and to dedicate time to one another.
Volunteer for Veggies
Volunteer for Veggies provides access to fresh, healthy food for everyone in the community. Volunteers take home a share of the farm freshest, nutrient richest, most delicious fruits and veggies around in exchange for their time at Bloom Community Farm or The Hope Garden.
Time on the farm is spent seeding, weeding, and harvesting our growing spaces and we reward all volunteers with a share of produce fresh out of the ground.
Thank you, Friends of the Farm!
Partnerships are essential to the continued expansion of food production and programming at Bloom Farm, supporting the health and well-being of all community members and their families.
Without our Friends of the Farm, Bloom would still be a blank canvas. Instead, this summer it has produced 9,750 lbs of fresh fruits and veggies and growing – it also provides transformational experiences for local children, teens, and adults.
Thank you to the following Friends of the Farm for helping cultivate change and growth for our entire community:
