September is a busy time of year on the farm, and that's no exception at Lydia's Fields! We'll start this field day with a tour of the site, including the annual vegetable fields and perennial asparagus patch. We'll also take a peek in the fig tunnel, where fig trees reliably overwinter. Farmer Robert Schubert will give an overview of the farm, including decisions around field placement, and talk about his general farm management decisions, including pest management, weed control, and soil fertility. After the tour, we'll all participate in a hands-on task. (Task TBD depending on weather and crop conditions).
Please come prepared with gloves, water, sunscreen, and closed-toe shoes. $5 for members, $10 for non-members, free for BFTP.
