Here's an excerpt from a recent post on the Urban Farm School blog all about the good stuff they have planned for us this year. Very cool stuff!
In the spirit of new opportunities we are introducing a new series of classes this summer called “Primers” that will focus on a small classroom environment, intensive instruction and lots of hands-on/take home activities for preserving in-season foods from your garden as well as local sources. These classes are a great opportunity for people to decrease their grocery bills while increasing good, healthy, local food for their families while supporting their local food community. We look forward to seeing you at a Primer!
We are also excited to re-establish our relationship with Sherian Wright, the local native bee lady. Her website can be found at: http://www.mountainbugs.com and is a wealth of native bee information, box designs, easy how-to lessons and more. We are also excited to form a new relationship with ecolutionnw, a local Vancouver business that specializes in green building products, floors, counter tops, insulation and more. Join us for our first chicken class of the year March 10th at their store. visit their website at: http://www.ecolutionnw.com for store and product details.
For our second year we will be participating in the Marshall Center Earth Day Celebration, April 18. We’ll be conducting two basic canning information classes as well as having a booth. We’ll be available throughout the day to answer your questions and just talk gardening! This is a great family event with lots of information for all ages.
For the first time we will be participating at the Home and Garden Idea Fair at the Clark County Fairgrounds April 24-26. We will have an informational booth in the Exhibition Hall and will be conducting a “Food Gardening for Small Spaces” lecture Saturday at 1pm again this year. We are excited to be exhibitors in this annual event; it’s one we always look forward to visiting as guests!
