Our challenge for this weekend will be getting the foundation of a farm started. We will build upon this project during subsequent weekend challenges!
We hope you enjoy part 1 of this challenge, we will have an Easter themed Part 2 for next weekend. Let us know if there are things you want to learn how to do and you may see it in a future update!

Join your Minecraft world and find a plot of land where you’d like your farm to be.
Map out how large you’d like your farm to be by placing a fence around it. (You can find a variety of different fences in your inventory)
Now that you have a farm, you need water before you can plant carrots. Dig up the land and pour a water bucket into the hole. (Farmland that is 4 blocks or less away from the water source will be irrigated).
Now its time to prepare the farmland for the carrot seeds. Take a wooden hoe from your inventory and till the land. You’ll notice the tilled land becomes a dark brown as it begins receiving water.
Obtain a carrot from your inventory and you can begin planting it on your tilled farmland. Sit back and wait for your carrots to grow.
Pro tip: Include torches around the perimeter of your farm so your crops can grow at night as well!
Protip – use bone meal to make the carrots grow faster http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Bone_meal#Fertilizer
