Our Summer/Fall 2015 Let's Grow Calendar and Newsletter is at the printer, but you can get a sneak peak of it now! We are excited to offer many of our favorite classes again this year - like Cheesemaking and Animal Day for Families - but we also have many brand new offerings!

For families and kids, check out these great new workshops and classes:

Dad's Day Survival Skills

Sunday, June 21, 10 AM - 3 PM

Spend a day learning survival skills with your dad! We'll learn to purify water, build shelter, and build fire. Plus, we'll enjoy time in the woods and with each other. Bring a sack lunch and your sense of adventure! Moms and other loved ones welcome, too!

4th of July Family Campout

Friday, July 3, 2 PM to Sunday, July 5, 12 PM

Start a new family tradition with a 4th of July camping trip on the farm. We'll play games, do farm work, hike to the creek, and enjoy evening campfires. We'll even cook up meals with ingredients straight from the farm. Bring a tent and gear, plus clothes you don't mind getting dirty.

New Adult Skills weekend workshop:

Wild Edibles WeekendWild edibles, wild crafting, Angelic Organics Learning Center

Saturday, August 8, 10:30 AM - 6:30 PM and Sunday, August 9, 8 AM to 4 PM

Learn how to identify, harvest, prepare and eat wild edible plants at this hands-on weekend workshop for the future forager. We’ll spend time learning to identify wild plants in different ecosystems, including woods, wetlands, farms, gardens and even lawns. We’ll also learn how to wash, process and prepare wild edibles by making them into meals. If you’re new to wild food, this weekend will change the way you see the natural world; if you’re an experienced forager, you’ll deepen your skills and bring home new recipes. Bring a sack lunch on Saturday. Light breakfast and snacks are provided, and we’ll prepare dinner Saturday and lunch on Sunday as a group.
