New Entry Sustainable Farming Project: Annual Open Farms Tour and Edible Plant Walk

August 7, 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Naturalist and Edible plant expert John Root will lead an edible plants walk at Ogonowski Farm prior to the Farm Tour. Learn how to identify nutritious and delicious edible wild plants. Distinguishing characteristics, seasons of availability, methods of preparation, and medicinal uses will be presented. This event is for all ages and admission is free. Immediately following the Edible Plant Walk, we will begin our Open Farms Tour.  Enjoy an insider’s view of our beginning farmer incubator training sites. Learn from project farmers and staff about our beginning farmer training programs, our farmland preservation efforts, and farm employment resources. Discover what motivates New Entry farmers and learn steps that New Entry farmers take to mitigate risks on their farms. Hear first hand challenges and joys of starting a small farm business.  Explore where your food comes from! Meet and network with other project supporters who believe in New Entry’s mission. Enjoy delicious appetizers made with locally-grown produce from the farms.
