“Springing into Nature”:

Organic Gardening for Beginners
Saturday, May 14 at 1pm
Boulder Knoll Community Farm

  • Want to start a garden this spring but dont know where to begin? Looking for some tips to boost your garden’s health and resilience? Come help us kickoff our “Springing into Nature” series this Saturday at the farm for a workshop on how to get started. You’ll participate in hands-on demonstrations and have a chance to ask your questions! We’ll talk about site preparation, sun and water factors, soil structure and health, and plant selection. All ages welcome.

Patterning in Nature
Saturday, May 21 at 1pm
Boulder Knoll Community Farm

  • Ever wondered why artists and poets alike are so inspired by nature?? In this art-themed workshop, we’ll take a look at some of the most common patterns in nature. We’ll use identification guides to teach us a few tricks, and sketch wild and domestic plants, insects and natural items alike. Bring your creativity and an open mind!

The Ground Beneath our Toes
Saturday, May 28, 1-3 pm
Boulder Knoll Community Farm

  • Join us as we plunge into the earth for a look at soil ecology, decomposition and soil makeup! Using GPS maps that indicate Boulder Knoll’s three soil types, we’ll dig soil pits at different locations, compare their makeups, and talk about how forests and farmers use different techniques for building soil. Bring your scientific mind and a willingness to get “soily”!

Learning Wild Edible Plants
Friday, June 3, 4-6 pm
Boulder Knoll Community Farm

  • Many of the plants we consider weeds are actually delicious salad additions, and native Americans used wild food stocks for hundred of years. We’ll walk around the farm’s perimeter and into the forest to explore what kinds of wild foods occur where, when and how to eat them. Participants will help collect ingredients for a wild salad! Bring an open palate, we will be taste-testing!

All events are free and open to the public. I hope you can join us! RSVP kindly requested to educator (at) boulderknollfarm (dot) com.

Stay tuned for more fun and educational events in the coming weeks and months.
