Category: Milkwood Farm Field Day
Date: Apr 1 2012 - Apr 1 2012
Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm
Join us at Milkwood Farm for our annual Field Day on 1 April 2012. Come explore our fabulous small 'beyond organic' farm and education center, and sit down with us for a delicious lunch made with organic produce from our farm.
This year we're excited to have Craig Sponholtz as our special guest. As part of the field day Craig will be talking on applied watershed restoration and erosion control, as well as taking folks on watershed walks, where you will learn how to read the landscape.
Nick Ritar will be on hand to give an overview of the farm and take you on a farm tour, explaining Milkwood's many features including water harvesting, grazing, natural building, alternative energy, beekeeping and animal systems.
Stephen Couling will take you for a tour of our organic market garden, and Dan Harris Pascal will lead you through our forest garden systems...
In between all this walking, exploring and doing, join us for a beautiful organic lunch made from as much Milkwood Farm fare as we can squeeze in...
Places are limited to 60 people to ensure a fantastic day for everyone. For more info about Milkwood Farm check out our farm blog here.
Further details about the day, food preferences and what to bring will be forwarded to you after booking...
This field day is offered at cost, with your ticket fee covering our special guest speaker's fee and the catering. As a result, this is our best fair share rate and no further discounts are available for this event.
**Please note that the farm walks part of this day is NOT suitable for anyone with limited mobility, as there is a small amount of steep hill walking accessed by rough walking tracks.
However if you do have limited mobility, there is still plenty to see, do and participate in during the field day, you might just have to give some parts of the farm walks a miss.
If you can't make this date, your might like to join us for a farm tour as part of National Permaculture Day on May 6th.
This event will comprise a simple farm tour followed by a cuppa and scones, and takes about 2 hours. Please see our listing on the National Permculture Day site for more info on this event.
