When Nate Kleinman and Dusty Hinz, founders of Experimental Farm Network, led our SEED SAVING TO FOOD SOVEREIGNTY meeting in September we knew it was just the beginning of something very special.
This is THE autumn event we’ve all been waiting for! We get to visit the Experimental Farm Network–we’ll get to tour the farm, help with any farm chores that are calling that day, and see for ourselves this unique and groundbreaking (pardon the pun) initiative. We will learn about seeds, seed saving, the rare perennial crops they’re growing and so much more. Those of us who attend this event will become a “seed group” for sustainable gardening in New Jersey/Philly, for we can see that so much more will grow out of our kinship with Nate and Dusty.
Your window of opportunity is from noon to 5pm but feel free to come for any portion of that time slot. If you plan to be there for a long stretch or over lunchtime bring a packed lunch. Also bring water to drink and sunscreen if you need it.
IMPORTANT! Note that this event is listed as having no physical location. We are unable to list the address, so the following info is for all who plan to attend:
The farm is about a 40 minute drive (south) from the Philly/Collingswood area, but please contact me, Barbara, at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a private message through Facebook for the exact address and other important details.
This is a child-friendly event.
