Workshops etc...

There's not too much going on in the local scene right now. Everyone is gearing up for SPRING! Here's to great gardens this summer! But while we're all browsing through seed catalogs there are a few events to note:

First is a pruning workshop at Butternut Farm.

From Seacoast Eat Local:

Wendy Berry has organized a small workshop on pruning fruit trees and shrubs:

Saturday, 9am-11am, Giff Burnap of Butternut Farm in Farmington, NH will offer a hands on workshop on pruning both young and old fruit trees. Snow depth and time permitting, the workshop will also provide instruction and practical experience pruning blueberry bushes.
There's a small fee of $5 and a class limit of 10 participants. E-mail Wendy at wberry@llfarm.net to reserve your spot.

Also, Yellow House Farm has opened a third Chicken School 101 class on March 21st as the first two sessions are full. I got in on the first class (Feb 28) and I'm SO excited to attend. For more info see my original Chicken School post but note the next available class is March 21st.

Lastly, this is the month to begin investigating local CSAs. You can decide which best fits your needs if you're unable to grow a garden this year or just want an extra supply of veggies. I'll be highlighting a local summer CSA in the next few days. Stand by for that bit of info.

Have a good Wednesday!

It's so great that Yellow House had to open a third session. I'm glad to hear that people are taking such an interest in being self sufficient. I'd love to have chickens, but somehow I don't think that my apartment's landlord would be down with it *LAUGHS*

Have a happy Wednesday!
