The story of That’s A Plenty Farm & Pollinator Habitat

We are Michael and Cathy Katz, both of retirement age, beginning our 10th summer of farming. Our family supports and inspires us in this project.

These are the essential questions of That’s A Plenty Farm:
• How much is enough?
• What does it mean to have a secure future?
• What would it entail to become contributors to the system, giving back more than we take?
• How can we, on our three acres, work to heal the planet?

We hand farm, and build soil. We grow compost, follow protocols to grow nutrient-dense food, and save seeds. We believe in permaculture and perennials. We installed a small solar array. We downsized. We moved to a community where we can ride bikes or walk for work and errands. We aim to grow nutritious food for a family of 6 through 4 seasons in New England (unheated greenhouses). We are learning to need less. To aim our energies at healing the planet. To learn cosmic rhythms.

In 2011, we discovered the resources available through the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), through which we received grants to establish the first NRCS-funded pollinator habitat in western Massachusetts. Now in our sixth pollinator habitat year, we are proud to share seeds from our habitat.

We wish our leaders would lead us all in making a transition to sustainability.
