Fall Gardening Series: Cover Crops and Wild Edibles

Date & Time
September 28, 2014
11:00 am - 1:00 pm

How do I add nutrients to my soil? What wild plants are good to harvest in the fall? Come out to the farm to learn about cover crops and wild edibles. We will also spend time understanding what it means to connect to the land and to develop a sense of place, reading and engaging with poetry and text by anthropologists, spiritual leaders, and poets, including Wendy Johnson (of Green Gulch Zen Center), W.S. Merwin, and Naomi Shihab Nye.

Our Fall Gardening Series is taught by veteran farmer, Ellie Lobovits. Ellie delights in teaching folks of all ages about the plant world, both wild and cultivated. Ellie has worked as the farm manager at Common Ground Farm in New York and Adamah (Urban Adamah’s sister program!) in Connecticut.

Tickets are $5-15 (sliding scale) in advance, $15 at the door. Signing up for both Fall Gardening Series classes is strongly encouraged, but not required! Readings and discussions will build on each other, but will be accessible to all.

Like all events here on the farm, we ask that you bring a canned food item to contribute to our food bank. Thanks for your support!
