Posted by Bernard Soubry on May 05, 2015

The Farm Apprentices and Workers Network is delighted and super-duper pleased to announce its first gathering on May 17, at Four Seasons Farm in Maitland, NS!

What: Hügelbed Hootenany, Potluck and Farm Tour (Facebook event)

When:  May 17, 2015 (Sunday), 11:00-15:00

Where: Four Seasons Farm, 8244 Hwy 215, Maitland, Nova Scotia (Map)

What you should bring: Food (for the potluck), work clothes (for the workshop), and a hankering for some fun

Join apprentices and farm workers from across the Maritimes for a fantastic day filled with food and glory as formidable farming duo Owen Roberts and Sina Wagner from Four Seasons Farm take us through the basics of herb production through hügelkultur! The workshop will be followed by a general introduction of the Farm Apprentices and Workers Network; a wonderful potluck lunch (black bean brownies, anyone?); and a tour of one of the most successful salad mix and mixed vegetable operations in the Maritimes.

All are welcome! Fun will be had! Come and meet your fellow new and young farmers, find out each other’s hopes and dreams, and discover the wonder of farming throughout the Maritimes.

The work party will take place rain or shine (or snow?!) so please bring appropriate work clothes. Since lunch is a potluck, please also bring a dish to share!

Please contact Bernard Soubry ( for more details.

See you on the 17th!
