Tassione Farms | Rocky Tassione is our resident farmer at
Harvest. Rocky runs his private farm operation out of the greenhouse
where he grows specialty lettuces and micro greens for over 30 high
end restaurants in DFW. Rocky also manages our community crops and
gardens and provides education, classes, tours and a great sense of
humor to our residents and school children in the area.
The Community Crops | Harvest has two community crop areas
that will produce 2 or 3 harvests per year. The summer harvest will produce crops for the community to use for special gatherings
(i.e. gourds, watermelons, pumpkins), while the winter harvest will
produce a crop that will replenish the soil with nutrients .
The Community Gardens | Harvest has raised garden beds for
rent to the residents to grow their own food under the guidance of our
resident farmer, Rocky Tassione. These plots rent for $60 per year, and
allow residents to have organic food for their family on a daily basis.
Families gather to water, plant and exchange ideas at the gardens and
all are welcome to head to the Community Farm
House for some fresh tea afterwards.
