Being sustainable means using fewer resources, but it also sometimes means paying a little more to get something that was made better. At Hollyhill Hummingbird Sustainable Farm, we use sustainability to cut costs by:
- getting used items donated to us, rather than having to buy them new
- re-purposing materials to make what we need
- feeding the chickens vegetable scraps from the garden and kitchen, which cuts down on the feed requirements
- using the chicken manure as fertilizer in the garden
However, there are still many expenses to make the farm run.
When you donate to Hollyhill Hummingbird Sustainable Farm, you get the option to state what you want your donation to be used for! We will then send you a picture of your donation being used to pay for the intended purpose.
