Where: Enderberry Farm, 64 Springbend Road, Enderby, BC V0E 1V3
When: 1:00-4:00pm, Sunday April 23rd, 2017
What to bring: A snack to share! Extra shovels, levels, and long measuring tapes would be useful, but are not required.

Join us for a tour of our farm, and then a hands on “workbee” to set up a new propagation hoop house. We’ll be able to get the site “level” and square, anchors in, and ribs up. We may or may not have time to get the plastic on.

 

I’m not an expert, but we just put up a 90ft hoop house.  It is fresh in my mind, so I thought it would be a good time to set up our smaller propagation house with anyone interested in learning. The site levelling and squaring is probably the most challenging part, but I think we’ll be able to break it down into some simple steps!
Farm tour will be quick because there isn’t a lot growing yet, but we can check out the market garden, berries, future orchard site, existing hoop house, post-harvest area, barns, chickens, and goats. We’re still in start up mode, so many of the spaces are being worked on and improved – you may need to use your imagination!
Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook Event!

About Enderberry Farm

2016-06-20 11.14.14-1

Enderberry Farm is a new organic farm that includes berry production, a future orchard, a market garden, laying hens, and some charismatic home-dairy goats. This is our second season on the farm. We’re farming co-operatively with two families living on and working the land, and operating both separate and shared enterprises. 

We’re located between Enderby and Grindrod – about 30min north of Vernon, and 15min south-east of Salmon Arm.
