Spring and Summer Workshops at the Farm

Spring and Summer Workshops at the Farm

Spring is in full swing at the farm! Flowers are bursting out of the earth, the breeze is warm, and the bees are out in the gardens and fields. Our summer programs are just around the corner: a suite of workshops that include historic beer brewing, herbalism, sustainable gardening, beekeeping, and music.

Roots N’ Rhythms Community Drumming Circle

Friday, June 2nd, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Our summer drumming circle is back! The drumming circle is a space for participants to make music, release stress, and enjoy the beauty of nature at the farm. The circle creates a powerful group drumbeat while the sun sets. Come experience the communal rhythm and music.

 

Garden Structures Workshop

Sunday, June 11, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Garden structures are an essential part of our permaculture garden. Structures contribute to a garden’s aesthetic and help plants like climbing flowers and tomatoes reach adequate sunlight and maximize the efficiency of their plot. This workshop will provide tools to quickly put together simple, beautiful garden structures.

 

Knitting Night

Thursday, June 15th, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Knitters, crafters, crotcheters, and other fiber artists! This monthly gathering is a space to develop ideas and share your latest project in our historic farmhouse. Participants are welcome to explore the grounds and take in the beauty of Towne pond as they craft their latest work.

 

Planting for Pollinators

Sunday, July 9th, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

It is a heartwarming feeling to look over the ifarm gardens and see (and hear) the buzzing of hundreds of pollinators. Bees and other wild pollinators are amazing, essential cogs within our ecosystem. Participants will delve into the importance of wild pollinators and the ways we can design our gardens to support (and be supported by) our insect allies.

This event promises to be a fun experience. Lauren Clark, author of Crafty Bastards- Beer in New England from the Mayflower to Modern Day will be speaking about the history and brewing practices of American beers, from the pilgrims onwards.

The Buzz About Bees

Sunday, July 23rd, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Are you noticing a pattern in our workshops? Pollinators are a favorite topic at ifarm. Biologist and beekeeper extraordinaire Anita Deeley will be leading The Buzz About Bees, a workshop for anyone interested in becoming more involved with bees. It will offer tools, strategies, and knowledge perfect for the aspiring beekeeper or the conservationist who wishes to support our local pollinators.

It’s going to be a great spring and summer – we hope to see you at the farm!
