December 27, 2010

Here is what we’ve planned for the Spring 2009 growing season!

April 25: Visioning the Garden
Discussing siting, planning, and approaches to setting up the garden.

June 13: Weed Identification
Learn about a variety of weeds common in our area – beneficial and otherwise!

July 11: Insect Tour
A day to identify, discuss, and celebrate the wide range of insects around us.

October 17: Herbal Apothecary
Identifying beneficial herbs, and preparing them as tinctures and decoctions.

All of this year’s Home and Hearth workshops will be held at Clearwater Acres in Damascus, PA. Driving east on 371, turn left onto Galilee Road. Bear left immediately at the fork, to continue on Galilee Road. Drive 2 miles, and turn right onto Swago Road. Make your next right onto Diehl Road. The farm is the first house you’ll see on your right, surrounded by fencing. A $25 donation is suggested for each workshop. Each workshop will last two hours, beginning at 9am.
