Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education

Horn Farm Happenings – June 2

Horn Farm Work CrewWould you like to spend a few hours helping us on the farm? In response to multiple requests for opportunities to volunteer in return for some ‘farm therapy’, we’ve organized two ongoing events– on Tuesday evenings from 4 to 7 p.m. and mornings on the first Saturday of every month from 9 to noon. You’ll have the chance to experience the farm up close and personal as you help us with planting, mulching, weeding, and harvesting–whatever the season requires. Please let us know you plan to attend by signing up here. Thank you!
Speaking of volunteering, we are looking for people to help us prepare and serve the post-ride meal for Cycle the Solstice happening on June 24th. We need help on both June 23 and 24. More information and sign up is here.

Other events in June:
Foraging for Wild Edibles
Jams and Jellies
Weed Identification
Edible Flowers

See you at the Farm!

Coming this summer: Bowmaking!
Maybe you’re an archer who loves hunting with a bow and arrow. Maybe you’re a woodworker who would love to learn a new skill. Or maybe you’re someone passionate about learning techniques for survival and self reliant living. Whatever the reason, this is your chance to learn how to make hunting-quality, wooden bow and arrows from scratch with your own two hands. You will leave with your own finished bow.
