About your teachers: Jordan & Melissa started Moonrose Farm in 2015 in Massachusetts on family property. Their small market garden grew into a bustling 3 acre farm when they moved to Hurricane Hill Farm (also home to cluck!) in 2017. Moonrose supplies 60 families weekly with vegetables and cut flowers in the Cranston area with their summer CSA and sells to many restaurants across the state of RI. Jordan & Melissa feel passionate about sharing the knowledge they have gained from the farmers they have worked for with other folks interested in growing their own food.
