On Sat. June 17, 2017 Marla and I will host our very first farm day right here at Lil Bitty Farm in Elverson PA.
The purpose behind the farm day is to encourage, help and empower anyone who is interested in learning more about vegetable gardening and backyard farming/homesteading. Do you have the desire to begin growing some of your own food but don't really know how to get started? Interested in raising animals on a very small acreage? Want to learn how to raise you own chickens for eggs or meat? How can I begin to build healthy soil? These topics and so much more will be covered at the Farm Day.
The agenda for the day will look something like this:
9:00 - 10:00 Welcome / The Dominion-Stewardship Mandate / Building Healthy Soil
10:00 - 12:00 In the garden: exploring different types of vegetable garden models, different vegetable crops and taking a look at compost.
12:00 - 1:00 Lunch will be provided
1:00 - 3:00 In the barnyard learning about raising chickens, cows, pigs and goats. Walk the pasture to learn about different types of pasture grasses.
Don't be fooled into thinking that this Farm Day is for people with "lots" of acres. Lil Bitty Farm consists of only 2 1/2 acres yet we have a fairly large garden and raise all our own chicken, beef and pork right here. This Farm Day is geared primarily at those who have anywhere from 1/4 acre to 10 or 15 acres and want to make it wonderfully productive. Even if you own 0 acres but are interested in learning you are welcome to join us.
The cost for the day is $25. This includes lunch and a door prize for every person that attends - one dozen Lil Bitty Farm fresh eggs! ! Registration is limited to 15 people and closes on June 10. If you would like to register you can Facebook "message" me or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you know someone who might be interested in attending this event please pass this information along to them. Thank you! !
Looking forward to seeing you at LIL BITTY FARM DAY 2017
Agrarian Blessings to you my friends,
