Be a "locavore" and visit two farms in the area
Oct 4, 2008
Meet your local organic farmers in their native habitatand learn about where your food comes from and what is involved in producing it. We will travel to Ashlin Farms, a local ranch of grass-fed cows and Down to Earth Farms, an organic vegetable farm. Farmer Brian of Down to Earth Farms has given us the additional option of working for "a spell". If you are interested in this part of the outing, wear your best farmer jeans and bring gloves and a lunch.
No reservations are necessary. Contact leader Janet Larson for event times.
We will meet at 9:00AM at Ashlin Farms
