WE GIVE FIELD TRIPS & TOURS FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS

One of our goals moving forward is to help the next generation realize the importance of local, sustainably grown food. We hope to do this with more school gardens, garden education programs, edible school yards, and more. We can schedule trips and tours for your group. Email us about setting up your group trip where you can observe and participate hands on in how growing more of your own food can be incorporated in your lives.

ADULT OVERVIEW

We offer tours for garden clubs, church groups, corporate groups or just a group of friends. In our tours we show you a variety of fruit and berry bushes we have found sucsessful. You can buy a fruit tree at any nursery but seeing mature fruit trees being grown for production gives you a feel of what It’s going to look like and how to better take care of it. We show you multiple perrinial vegitable plants as well as fertilizer and fodder plants. We point out understory cropping stratigies, compainion planting ideas, pollinator planting ideas and more. We explain aquaponics ideas and show you techniques for creating healthier soil as well as ideas for preserving your crops and saving seed.

Children experience worms from our vermiculture operation, see our breeder tilapia that help provide the next years fish harvest. They learn some of the culturally importaint plants from other parts of the world. They also learn some of the plants that have historically been an importaint part of healing and medicine. They discover smells of many plants that can be used as tea plants or just to spice up a dish for the dinner plate.
