Just a friendly reminder that this weekend at the Acadia Farm we are hosting a workshop on Food Forest Design (info attached, and below). Thank you to those who have responded and already signed up! We’re looking forward to meeting you.
Additional information to note:
- Rain date: Sunday July 8th, same time and place. An email will be sent out if the workshop is moved to Sunday.
- There is likely going to be a “work party” after the workshop to continue planting, if necessary. This may be a good opportunity to stick around and ask Graham more questions, get more practice with the concepts, etc. If you plan to stay, bring a hearty snack. We’ll have a quick break with refreshments, but not a meal, for you.
