Intro to Permaculture & 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! Stick around afterwards for our Home Herbal Apothecary class!

Herbal classes are amazing, but the number one takeaway most people are looking for is how they can apply herbal medicine to their life and family. This class will address the most common “home apothecary” issues such as headaches, colds, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, allergies, mild insomnia, cuts and scrapes and more- think all those little things you know how to treat with OTC drug store items. We will discuss adequate herbal substitutes and strategies for combating these common complaints and go over dosages so that you leave feeling equipped to tackle these pesky complaints through the farmacy instead of the pharmacy. Options for purchasing the class include the class alone OR the class plus the “Home Apothecary Starter kit” featuring 5 of the tinctures your family is most likely to use plus our healing salve!
