Horn Farm Happenings – November 17

glass gem corn cobsFrost has pushed us into fall clean up mode on the farm.  The 2017 CSA season is behind us.We hope you enjoyed your shares as much as we enjoyed ours! Early bird discounted registration for 2018 is available here. We are harvesting the last of the root crops: carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, dandelion and burdock root. The last of the garlic will be planted in those beds this week. We will still be foraging for wild edibles in December. Join us on December 2 for a field walk at the farm.

We are pleased to have been offer more than 65 classes and workshops in 2017 in the categories of Farming and Gardening, Cooking, Wilderness Skills, and Ecological Design.  Our last formal educational offering for 2017 is our favorite ecological design tool: permaculture. It’s the tool we use constantly on the farm and within the nonprofit business. Permaculture is a design practice that calls for deep observation, understanding relationships, and identifying goals. Learning to model our designs on the interconnectedness of healthy ecosystems allows us to meet our needs and those of future generations while respecting and caring for the Earth–our home.
