The cover crop we planted last month – winter wheat – is coming up! And the seeds we harvested at September’s work party are dry and ready to sort.
This month we’ll be tackling the following:
- Sorting the seeds we collected earlier this fall, using the farm’s greenhouse which is large and well ventilated (but face covering would be recommended while working in there)
- Potting up some herb starts
- Carrying on maintaining and pruning in the society land
- Taking up the society land’s irrigation lines for the winter
- And probably weeding and laying down some more wood chips where the weeds are coming through.
Please email us back at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to come, and we’d love it if you could pass the word to anyone you think might be interested! Please review our Covid protocol before coming (see below).
Good idea to:
- Dress warmly
- Bring a hot beverage and/or water bottle (hint: tea goes nicely with our post-work party snacks!)
- Bring or wear boots and gloves if you have them.
