Raising invertebrates for food and farming can be fun, entertaining and rewarding – and meet many different needs.
On August 26, join William Padilla-Brown for discussion and demonstrations as he takes us on a journey through many different invertebrates – starting with our two ancient aquatic invertebrates, Brine Shrimp and Triops, then our Subterranean Red Wiggler worms, followed by crickets, roaches, mealworms, waxworms, superworms, BSF larvae, hornworms, their beetles, moths, and flies!

Participants will get hands-on time, setting up small habitats to take home with choice of crickets, roaches, mealworms, and/or Red Wiggler Worms. The course will end with a demonstration on how to cook with edible insects and participants who wish may participate in an Entomophagy (the eating of insects).

We are having a party!

Healthy ecosystems maintain, fertilize, and renew themselves, naturally. Land management techniques that mimic such healthy ecosystems can produce food, fiber, medicine, and other products while simultaneously regenerating the landscape. In September, the Horn Farm Center is partnering with the Lancaster County Conservancy and Susquehanna Heritage to present Tending the Susquehanna Riverlands. Space is limited, register today!

Also in September:
Cooking Venison
Roasted Vegetables
Pawpaw Festival
Wildlands Immersion: The Art of Seeing and the Science of Observation
