Get started growing food at home

Angelic organics 2Celebrate Earth Day by learning techniques for organic soil preparation and planting on Saturday, April 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We’ll teach adults and teens about soil texture and soil life, plus how our Biodynamic farm tends and feeds the earth.

We’ll cover the basics of double digging, prepare a garden bed, and learn about seeding and transplanting through hands-on projects.

Dress to work in the garden. Sandwiches for lunch included.

Grow food with funky style 

You don’t need a ton of space to grow food, just curiosity and creativity.

All are welcome to this make-and-take workshop that teaches you how to plant vegetables in unusual ways, like seed bombs made from old mail, and using found or recycled containers to grow whatever your heart desires on Saturday, April 30 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Kids will love growing their own food in weird ways that they actually eat it. This event is taught by guest instructor Amanda Thomsen, author of Kiss My Aster.
