In 2020 we will host a number of workshops, open farm days, and work parties at the farm. The best way to not miss anything is to follow us on facebook and sign up for our newsletter where we will have details and updates. We are still working on this year's calendar, and will be posting events soon.
Listed below are the descriptions of some our 2019 events.
Saturday, October 26, 2019 - Open Farm Day and Yoga! Free outdoor Yoga class with Emily Gilmore (Dillsburg Yoga) from 9:00 to 9:45, followed by Open Farm Day from 10:00 to 4:00. Come join us for the day to explore our permaculture-focused farm. Farm tours will be held at 10:00 and 2:00, and will offer an opportunity to see our Scottish Highland cattle and calves, Katahdin sheep, Idaho Pastured Pigs, laying hens of several breeds, along with our Shiitake mushroom yard and the rest of the farm. (There is a golf cart available for anyone with mobility challenges.) We are also planting lots more trees this fall, so join in to plant a tree or two anytime all day!
Saturday, November 9, 2019 -Riparian Buffer Tree Planting Come join us anytime between 9:00 and 3:00 to help fill in our Riparian Buffer with more trees and shrubs! We will be planting tulip poplar, tupelo, river birch, hackberry and more, continuing to diversify the wild life habitat along Little Chiques creek. Thanks to Chesapeake Bay Foundations Keystone 10 Million Trees Project for facilitating the regeneration of the Susquehanna river valley! Join us for soup and bread if you are helping to plant over the lunch hour! Remember to bring boots, work clothes that can get dirty, gloves, and a water bottle. Please bring your favorite shovel if you have one as our supply is limited.
Saturday, November 23, 2019 - Tree Planting pt 2 Come along and join us in planting willow trees in a low section of our pasture. Together we will add to the riparian buffer and create a coppice patch, or copse (trees that are managed for wood by pruning without killing the tree)! Again, join us for soup and bread if you plan to be here over the lunch hour, and bring appropriate clothing and items listed above.
