Carrie Jones, Peaceful Belly Farm, Boise, ID
Carrie Jones manages the Hidden Springs CSA in the Hidden Springs Planned Community in Boise. Peaceful Belly Farm is the managing farm for this new CSA which has 85 members. Carrie hopes that within 8 years, the CSA program at Hidden Springs can grow to 600 members. The farm, located within the community to serve the residents, hopes to accomplish several goals including preserving the agricultural traditions of the area, putting a face behind the food, helping residents feel connected to their food, and showing how urban farming can succeed. Hidden Spring’s residents and directors have a vision of sustainable agriculture as a sustainable culture.
