IMBY, Misty Hollow shareholders have the option of contributing to the farm with their time and effort in numerous ways. Many find taking care of the soil and crops through seeding, planting, watering, weeding, etc. to be a rewarding and meditative experience. Other jobs include organizing activities, collecting off-farm orders, preparing for pick-up, and more. In this way the initial price of their share is worked down to the lower price which is listed in "Share Price." Children are welcome - garden activities can include them or they can simply play. We have run a children's morning day camp; it is a yearly decision.

At In My Back Yard, Misty Hollow we grow, gather and explore nature's bounty for food, flavor and health. We grow from heirloom seeds; we practice seed-saving; if we spray, they are natural & organic sprays, we provide food use and food preservation workshops free to shareholders. IMBY Misty Hollow accepts a very small number of both full- and half-shareholders each year at a price that can be reduced with a variety of jobs that contribute to the farm and to shareholder experience, information & existence. Shareholders' fulfill our mission - by working with us, many find they acquire the information necessary to grow their own family garden in their own back yard. Thru' the working-member Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and hands-on workshops, IMBY Misty Hollow extends the reciprocal relationship of human and earth health to our members.
