Looking for something to do during President’s Week? We’ve got programs for both children and adults to learn more about our work and experience Hawthorne Valley in winter.
Registration is now open for the Climate, Soil, Food, Health – It’s all Connected! weekend workshop with Will Brinton, soil scientist and founder of Woods End Laboratories, and Gidon Eshel, Research Professor, Environmental and Urban Studies at Bard College. This interactive and experiential gathering at Hawthorne Valley Farm dives into the many different yet interconnected strands of soil health including physical, biological, and spiritual. What’s soil got to do with it? Everything! Registration for the conference is on a sliding scale ($100-$200). As part of the workshop, Will Brinton will offer a public talk on Feb 21 entitled, “The Mirror Crack’d: Climate, Soil, Food, Health,” and Gidon Eshel will lead a public talk on Feb 22 on the topic, “AgroEcology and Feeding Ourselves: Tensions, Promises and Future Potential” ($10 donation at the door for each talk).
For the younger set, our President’s Week Farm Day Program for ages 5-12 is now accepting applications. Children will participate in winter activities, farm animal care, and crafting. An organic snack and lunch is provided, and each day includes story time. The cost is $75/day for each child, or $300/week for each child registered in advance. The program runs from 8 am-3 pm daily.
