Event Description

BACKYARD BEANS & GRAINS PROJECT WORK PARTIES

HAND HARVEST AND THRESHING TECHNIQUES FOR GRAINS AND DRY BEANS
 
Learn how to hand-harvest and thresh grains and dry beans, important crops for year-round local food security. Work parties to support the Backyard Beans & Grains Project will be held every other Wednesday afternoon during harvest/threshing season. Each week will focus on different crops as they become mature in the field. The cost is free: we will share our knowledge and experience with you in exchange for your labor. Bring gloves, water, a snack and a hat.
 
When: Wednesday afternoons from 3-6pm: August 17, 31; September 14, 28; October 12, 26
Location: Broadleaf Farm, Robinson Road, Everson. Call or email for exact directions to the farm and our field.
RSVP Required: Weather conditions affect harvest so we need to know who is coming as cancellations or rescheduling may occur.

I know Travis, that's ok. I didn't schedule these to be friendly to working folks. There will be probably be a big bean threshing party at Riverhaven later in the season.

i wish I could attend, but by the time I could get out there, you'd be finished :(

All is a go for tomorrow. We'll be harvesting wheat, barley, and soup peas for sure, and probably some garbanzos. We can also thresh the first three.

Thanks!

Krista, I hope to join you one of these Wednsdays!  I'm getting ready to attend the NW Herbal Fair this week.  Maybe see you there!
