The gardening workshop drew more participants than we saw in the last two years combined. Victor led a 1 hour long exploration of hugelkultur complete with wonderful illustrations. Kurt spent an hour described in detail how he assembled his current root cellar and provided many hints on how others could do the same successfully. I followed up with another hour of fruit-talk (my favorite, though the other presentations were super informative) and Victor provided dozens of photos of fruits that he has experimented with. And, the audience provided numerous examples of thought-provoking questions. I think everyone went away with a head full of ideas and useful knowledge. It looks like we may see more than a few hugel beds pop up around town.
A big thanks to all the participants for making this such a huge success (and helping set up and clean up)! I personally want to thank Victor and Kurt for taking the time on a beautiful Sunday afternoon to share their wisdom with all those in attendance. I also want to thank the Golden Valley Lions Club for allowing us to hold the workshop in the Ken Kunkel Community Center.
Did you miss the workshop? No problem, the hugelkultur and fruit growing presentations are on the farm website. Unfortunately, you had to be there for the root cellar presentation.
We are already thinking about ideas for next March at our 4th Annual Gardening Workshop. If you have suggestions, drop us a line using the email address on our website.
Thanks again everyone and happy gardening!!
