Horn Farm Happenings – January 31, 2020

Come learn about the land by looking through the eyes of the species that inhabit wild spaces! Join us tomorrow, Saturday, February 1, from 9 to 11 for an ecological adventure walk through the woodlands and the meadows of the Horn Farm Center. Time on the farm will spark your sense of wonder and teach you about all aspects of the land we call home. This month’s focus will be tracking, bird identification, tree identification, and winter survival skills. Find more information and register here: The Living Landscape

We believe that individual actions in great numbers are the way we will make make a difference in these uncertain times. That’s why we focus on sharing the skills and knowledge that empower people to be stewards of the land. We are offering three classes in February and March aimed at people interested in being better stewards of the yards and gardens where they live. On February 29, join us for Native Plants for Winter Interest and Wildlife.

On March 14, we will look at ways to save time and money by integrating native plants as groundcovers in your home garden! Check out:  Green Mulch: Native Plants as Groundcovers

Then we will look at ways to manage water during Stormwater Management 101 for Homeowners on March 28.

Become a skilled steward of the land! Learn to feed yourself and your community using farming practices that restore ecological balance to the land.Program participants in the Regenerative Farming Training ProgramThe Regenerative Farming Training Program kicks off in just one month! Over the years we’ve tweaked the name and the curriculum, but this eight month program has been valuable to all who’ve participated.  We teach farming practices that restore damaged ecosystems while producing food for our community. Emphasis is placed on learning to see the farm as a whole, highly integrated, agricultural ecosystem. We have started interviewing for this program which begins March 2. Click here to get the details or forward this newsletter to someone you feel might be interested!
