2012 Summer Program

What is a sustainable farm? It's a farm built with careful choices. It avoids unnecessary chemicals. It avoids long distance shipping. It chooses to respect its land, its plant, its animals, its people. Build a model farm with careful choices. Construct cows, sheep, ducks and chickens from wood cut from trees that have fallen on our land. Make all natural stains to color them. Construct a Barn from rescued barn siding. Build a small planter and plant vegetables to enjoy later in the summer. Preserve locally harvested food. A primer on the arts, traditions and science of making good food. Shape, detail, color, build, cook, plant, play.
