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.

Due to the nice weather we've had the past few weeks, this will be the last scheduled harvesting work party of the year. Some pole beans will remain to be harvested but will have to be scheduled around the rainy weather. Please come today if you were holding out, as this may be your last chance. A threshing day will be held a bit later, probably Sunday Sept 25, at Riverhaven as well. Thanks!
