Bring a dish to share!
Join Gabe Cipes, Permaculture designer and Biodynamicist with Jade Shaman, master gardener/carpenter for a farm tour of Summerhill Pyramid Winery. This special farm is more than a winery! The farm tour will give you a chance to check out the vineyards, forest gardens, culinary gardens, glass house nursery, Pit house/Kekuli, bees and chickens. The tour starts at 4pm and will be followed by a potluck gathering at the estate house looking over the lake and vineyards.
Farm Tour, Potluck, Conversation
Gabe has been involved with the Young Agrarians from the start. He says: “I whole- heartedly support this movement and am exited to welcome new farmers and familiar faces to our home and experimental play ground to share some of our practices and produce. I sit on many boards related to food policy and organic certification and occasionally offer lectures and teach.”
Be sure to stick around for socializing! Gabe will facilitate a conversation regarding the concept of a Decentralized, Bioregional, food school to involve more individuals in the our food ecology and economy.
