On April 27 we’ll be hosting a “field day” here at the farm, as part of a series of events being hosted by the farms that are members of Chemical-Free Farms of Southern Virginia. We’ll also be attending the events hosted by Our Father’s Farm (on April 20), Strawberry Creek Farm (on May 18), Herndon Family Farm (date tba) and Chandler’s Gardens (date tba).
We haven’t finalized the details yet, but there will be fun activities for children as well as farm tours and gardening demonstrations. If the event is a success we’ll try to do something similar in the fall.
Later in the year we hope to start hosting gatherings of folks who share our commitment and passion for sustainable living. We’re hoping for something similar to what our friends at Land and Table are doing. The gatherings will be potluck get togethers at our old farm house and we’re hoping they will involve some combination of music, films, book discussions, poetry and most of all fellowship, oriented around sharing ideas, stories and life in the journey toward living better and more sustainably.
Hoping we plant those seeds well…
