Come celebrate harvest and community at Germantown Community Farm's Fall Gathering: October 13 th and 14th. Join us for skillshares, workshops, field work, and woods walks by day. A sampling of the expected delights: a wild edible plant walk, 2- and 4- cycle diesel engine basics, firewood 101, intro to welding, a tour of the csa garden, mushroom hunting in the forest, kid's crafts, digging potatoes and more…Also, feasting and contra dancing by night. We're asking interested people to pitch in with shared childcare if they are around for a chunk of the weekend. If you will be here
for only a short time, childcare will be available. Food contributions are definitely appreciated.
Folks are welcome to spend the night camping in our orchard. Bring bedding, tents, flashlights and anything you'd like to share. Please RSVP if you know that you need an inside sleeping space.
Again, we are at 4872 Route 9G in Germantown, NY 12526.
Come for a minute, a meal, a couple days. We'll pass the hat if you want to pitch in, but IT’S FREE. We're excited. See you there!
