Open Heart Farming


Open Heart Farming is a special annual edition of Open Heart Forgery. Since 2012, Open Heart Farming has published food and farming themed poems by residents of Nova Scotia. Open Heart Farming poems are poignant, passionate, political, reminiscent and frolicking. We believe that submitting a poem should be a positive experience. We believe in making poetry easily accessible in print and online.

Open Heart Farming wants to re-kindle a love for written and spoken poetry. We love to share the stories of the poets and their poems, and give poets opportunities to read and perform their poems publicly. Poets have read at events and venues including farmers markets, libraries, and food gatherings.

We invite you to fall in love with Open Heart Farming and the poetry of the land!
