Field Trip to EarthDance Farm in Ferguson

June 10, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join the Climate Action Now! team on Saturday, June 10th, at 10 a.m., at Earth Dance FarmLocated in Ferguson, EarthDance is an organic farm school.  During our guided tour, lasting about one hour, we’ll learn about the benefits of local small scale organic farming and how it differs from “big agriculture” mono cropping.  We’ll hear about sustainability as we tour the herb garden, “7-Generations” garden, rain garden, and production fields.  We’ll also visit the greenhouse and harvest house, so that we can get a sense of how the packing process works, in advance of the produce’s journey to restaurants, markets, farm stands, and, ultimately, plates.

This is a great opportunity for people of all ages—adults, teens and children—to learn, to have fun, and to spend time outdoors with Ethical Society friends.  The cost is $10 per person, payable in advance, to Bob or Cathy Pickard or Brian Vandenberg.  If interested, let us know no later than June 4.  If you have questions, please reach out to them in person or via the CAN! email.
