Farm Education Workshop & Honey Jar Update

Ever dream of starting your own small farm? Future Harvest – The Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture will be hosting a workshop series on small-scale and urban farming. Nine workshops for only $50 (the three urban farming workshops are $30)…and it starts next week! Check out more info here: http://bit.ly/1CjNkrD.

In other news, today WSB’s 5th grade worked on labeling the honey jars. Each student designed a label, so you will have a variety of artwork to choose from. We still have a bit more to get done before our honey will hit the market. We’ll be selling 1.5 oz and 3.75 oz jars to raise fund to our honeybees. Pricing and selling will be the next topic of our honey business discussion.

Adult Workshop on Indoor Anaerobic Composting 5/27 @ 8:30am

Bokashi Composting is a method that allows you to compost indoors, at a rapid pace, with only a small amount of outdoor space. Come to the Waldorf School of Baltimore on Tuesday 5/27 @ 8:30am for a 1 hour workshop that will give you the confidence to tackle this great feat on your own! Your WSB student knows how to do it — now so can you!

One lucky participant will win a WSB Composting System; and twelve participants will be able to purchase a WSB Composting System for $30. Bring a drill if you have one! If interested, please bring a check payable to Waldorf School of Baltimore. All proceeds will benefit WSB’s Green Projects.

Clay Mountain

IMG_0568We got clay this week. 10 tons of it! Big thanks to the Stancill family for their generous donation. The Stancills have been part of the WSB community for a long time and donated clay to build the earthoven many years ago as well. We’ll be using this batch to fix up the earthoven and build a cob bench in the garden this Spring! I would like this to be a community workshop & project. Please let me know if you’re interested in getting your hands & feet muddy! Have a nice weekend.

Permaculture Landscaping Event

workshopThis Tuesday, December 4th at 7pm, our neighbors at Cylburn Arboretum will host a permaculture workshop by Michael Judd. The lecture will focus on garden designs that harvest rain water, grow gormet mushrooms in the shade, espalier fruits, create herb spirals, develop food forest, and more, all with a permaculture twist.

Mr. Judd has worked with agro-ecological and whole system designs through out the Americas for the last 18 years. He is the founder of both Ecologia: Edible & Ecological Landscape Design and Project Bona Fide, an international non-profit supporting agro-ecology research.

Remember: Events such as this will be posted in our event tab in the upper right corner of the page. Tuesday’s workshop is free and open to the public.
