Join us as we explore the farm organism at Camphill Village in Copake, NY. Beginning with an introduction to the community, we will then tour the various land areas: the healing plant herb and flower garden, which grows and processes herbs into teas, tinctures, salves, and more; Turtle Tree Biodynamic Seed Initiative, where Biodynamic seeds are grown, selected, cleaned, and sold to farms across the US; the Sunny Valley dairy, which provides milk for the community, possibly the only hand-milked herds of its size in the US; the vegetable garden, which provides fresh vegetables for the community; and the Forestry and Estate, which cares for the forests and wetlands that surround the village, doing many essential community land tasks, as well as producing firewood and maple syrup for the community and beyond. There will be many chances to ask questions from those managing the various areas and to get a view into the farm organism in our valley. Lunch will be provided from the Camphill Village Cafe.
Lunch is not included with any field day. Please either purchase a lunch option in Step 6 of registration or make other arrangements.
