This Weekend

Picture 251 Fernwood will be participating in the Belfast Creative Coalition Cultivate: Arts and Farm Tour this weekend ( both Saturday and Sunday, October 11th and 12th from 10:00- 4:00). Rick will be giving a native plant talk on both days at 1:00 p.m. I will be providing a wool dyeing demo ( also on both days) at 11:00 a.m. Picture 254The tour is free, and for folks wanting to get out on a beautiful fall weekend to explore some local farms and art, check out this site for more information and a tour map ( Belfast Creative Coalition). We’ll be here at the nursery talking plants, gardening, wool, and sustainability. We’ll also be pressing apples throughout the day using our 1800’s cider press . If you plan a visit to Fernwood today, you are apt to see lots of what happens here in the fall. Garden beds being turned over and amended, seeds being harvested, leaves raked and spread into the gardens, garlic being planted. Come ask some questions and see for yourselves what chores take place this time of year at Fernwood. The weather should be great and perfect for getting out to explore all that Waldo County has to offer. Come join us!
