Open Farm Day & Gardening Workshop!
Sunday 5/4, 12-4 pm, Jericho Settlers Farm
We're participating in the Northeast Organic Farming Association of VT CSA Open Farm Day and invite you to come and tour our farm! Whether you are considering joining a CSA, are already a member, or are just interested in getting to know a farm in your community, please join us for an afternoon of farm tours and activities. We'll have fun events going on all day:
- Organic Gardening Workshop (2pm)
- Tours of our hoophouses
- See baby lambs and chicks
- View our new biomass furnace
- Kids' seed exploration (bring home a potted seed)
- The Emile A. Gruppe Gallery, our historic barn and art gallery, will be open too
We will have fresh vegetables, eggs, and meats available for purchase in our farmstand and information about our CSA programs.
Free Organic Gardening Workshop:
Come learn the secrets to organic vegetable gardening from the local experts at Jericho Settlers Farm! Mark and Christa will discuss the varieties of plants that grow the best here in Vermont and offer advice on ways to get the most from your garden. They will cover tips for maintaining your garden: soil basics and fertilization, transplanting vs. direct seeding, weeding, pest management, season extension, and vegetable harvest and storage techniques. Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the farm, explore the hoophouses, and ask their hot-burning gardening questions.
This event is free and open to the public. Please register so we are sure to have enough space. It will happen rain or shine in our historic barn / art gallery at 2pm on Sunday, 5/4.
