We’ll be hosting a Young Farmers’ Mixer on Saturday, October 19th to facilitate an enriching community building experience, provide networking opportunities and have fun. We want to provide young farmers and young farmer recruits with access to examples of financially viable business models for new farms, homesteading resources and land link organizations. We also want to facilitate connections between landowners who want their land in cultivation and land-less farmers. There will be opportunity to link farmers with food justice organizations and illustrate how food justice activism can play into a small farm business.
The event will begin with a tour of Southern Exposure’s seed and trial gardens and a demonstrative seed-saving workshop. The day will end with our second annual Fall Festival complete with dancing, home-grown music, apple folk tales, food, drink and good spirit. If interested, please RSVP to applefolktale at gmail.com for directions and to let us know what you’d like to bring for the potluck!”
