March 3, 2013 - the day after Seedy Saturday!
Join us at Ripple Farm for the first ever Comox Valley Young Agrarians potluck and learn-in!
Arrive around 3:00PM for a hands-on soil-blocking demo in the greenhouse. Soil blocks are an awesome alternative to using plastic pots and plug trays for seedlings. We'll have an array of soil-blocking equipment to show you and everyone will have a chance to test drive the blockers and help get some of the seeding done.
Everyone is welcome.
Soup potluck around 5:00PM. That means you can bring something that would go well as a side to soup. Please consider bringing something that accounts for common food sensitivities (gluten, dairy, nuts, etc.)
Eating, socializing and visioning together will happen till 8:00ish.
