Horn Farm Happenings – June 28, 2019

Many people come to the Horn Farm for the first time because they want to learn more about edible wild plants. Our June Plant Walk takes place tomorrow, June 29. June is a time of abundance so there will be plenty of plants to get to know. We’ll do a general plant walk this month, looking at both herbaceous and tree species. The class is two hours in duration. Beginners and experienced foragers are welcome. Be prepared to walk, often at times on muddy or uneven surfaces. Dress for the weather and season! We meet at the pole barn. Register here: June Plant Walk.

The Horn Farm Center has the facilities and instructors for many types of indoor or outdoor classes on a range of topics: cooking, foraging wild edibles, ecological design, gardening and farming, landscape restoration, or wilderness skills. Would you like to be able to identify the wild edibles on your property? How about a specialty cooking class for you and a group of friends? Or perhaps your Cub Scout or Brownie troop needs a fire making badge? Is your organization looking for a unique team-building opportunity for employees? We can help. Get the details!
