Join Joanna Mann as we walk around the farm looking at wild or easy to grow medicinal herbs, discussing the basics of herbalism, and how to utilize our plant allies. Then stay for an Intro to permaculure and farm tour!
At Walden Farms we engage in a type of regenerative farming known as permaculture in which we believe in the intelligence of natural systems and thus try to mimic the way in which ecosystems grow. We see ourselves as the conductor, choosing which plants will come together to create the symphony of our land. Permaculture farms don’t look like what one may expect a farm to look like, but we love to share what we do with the public in hopes it will inspire!
Join us for an indoor presentation on the basics of permaculture followed by a tour explaining how we implement these practices on our farm, after which we will have catering available from our friends at Sorelle along with drinks from Walden Farmacy available for purchase. Bring a blanket or chair to sit on, or feel free to take food and drink to go if need be!
At Walden Farmacy- 290 Porter Rd SE, Bessemer.
