FARMING 102: COOL SEASON CROP SERIES Our Farming 102 classes are offered a la carte or sold as a package (only on the event page of the first class in the series). Each of the 3 classes includes classroom time and hands-on field labs at Wild Willow Farm, where many of these crops are being grown. Students will be taken on a plant family journey learning the history of the plant and are instructed step by step from starting your seeds/plants, maintenance, and harvesting. Topics include the level of care required, level of fertility, watering needs, common pests and diseases, and yield. Special attention will be paid to seasonality, as students identify the appropriate season for specific crops.  Each class includes a cooking demo and tasting samples of what Wild Willow Farm grows. For lunch, students are asked to bring a potluck dish representative of the plant family being discussed! Led by farmer Paul Maschka, a highly respected seasoned farmer and instructor in holistic agriculture. You are sure to learn a great deal no matter what your experience level is!
