Horn Farm Happenings – November 8, 2019

There are two opportunities to join us at the farm tomorrow! On Saturday November 9, we will be braving the cold for Foraging: Roots. Now is the time to begin digging roots – as the plants begin to drawn their energies into the ground to store them for winter, we can begin to take advantage of this and dig them. They can be used as tasty root vegetables, or dried for coffee, tea, and medicine. We’ll demonstrate the process of taking them from root to coffee, and sample a warm brew at the end of class. The class is two hours long, from 9 to 11 a.m. 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.

In the afternoon, from to 2 to 4 p.m., we are hosting a free workshop called Foundations of Soil Health.

This is a free event and all ages are welcome! Please let us know you’ll be coming on the Facebook event page.

– Soil (Identification, Fertility & Nutrient Cycling, Creation)
– Compost (Basics, Tips for Winter months)
– Bed Prep (BioIntensive, Synergistic, Raised Beds)
– Cover Crops
– Planning a garden for 2020!

This hands on workshop takes place this Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. and is a great opportunity to get some great hands on experience digging BioIntensive beds. We will look at various methods we use here at the farm to regenerate the soil, close the loops, and encourage healthy plants.

This won’t only be about the farming/gardening methods. We will also be talking about and exploring how physical movement (or maybe the lack thereof) is incorporated into our lives, and how making small changes in our daily routines helps us to become better movers. The goal is to move well before we move often. Plan on meeting at the farm house at 2.

We hope to see you soon!
