Farm & Homestead Day at MOFGA is a free, volunteer-driven event offering hands-on workshops based on re-skilling for resiliency. Please bring a dish to share for the Potluck Picnic Lunch– and something to add to the Stone Soup Kettle (fresh or dry ingredients).
Come dressed to participate and ready to get your hands dirty! Bring family and friends! Many activities are kid-friendly or specifically for kids. Learn skills that will allow you to throw off the shackles of consumer dependency and be more self-reliant.
The ever-popular fiber-arts area will feature spinning, weaving, carding, and felting, as well as treadle sewing machines. Other workshops this year include splicing rope, tying knots, making round poles, scarfing wood joints, riveting, goat-milking, cheese-making, blacksmithing, knife sharpening, and much more!
Gates open at 7 a.m. for sunrise mowing. No pre-registration necessary.
A complete listing of workshops and details will be listed before the event.
Join Chef Frank for a wild food walk at 10am! Plus a wild food kimchi workshop at 1pm in the kitchen classroom.
