Tour scheduled Oct. 1 of Martinsburg’s Urban Farm

By Staff | Sep 16, 2016

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a tour of Martinsburg’s first urban farm on Saturday, Oct. 1. The tour will begin at 9 a.m. and last about an hour. It will be led by Matt Denton, the farm’s owner.

It will be free and anyone with an interest will be welcome. Pre-registration is encouraged; register on the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org.

The farm, called Herban Sprout, is located at 732 New York Avenue, at the corner with Buxton Street. Opened last spring, it concentrates on growing herbs, green and microgreens.

The centerpiece of the operation is an 18×18-foot greenhouse that operates on solar power and is completely off the grid.
