WILLIAMSTOWN -- Get ready to garden! Spring is right around the corner; and to help get the garden off to a great start, Wild Oats Market is offering an informal Q&A session with local organic farmers Lisa MacDougall of Mighty Food Farm in Pownal, Vt., and Jamie Snyder of Happenchance Farm in Eagle Bridge, N.Y. This interactive session takes place on Wednesday, March 13, from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Wild Oats Market café.
Bring your questions about seed selection, green composting, organic pest control, soil health, raising backyard chickens, and anything else you’d like to ask about growing a gorgeous, flourishing organic garden in 2013.
This is an excellent opportunity to pick the brains of two seasoned organic farmers, who although they are young, have decades of organic farming experience between them.
Jamie of Happenchance Farm raises vegetables, greens, melons, flowers, berries and more using certified organic methods. Two of his farm’s largest crops are mesclun mixed greens and tomatoes. Lisa and her crew at Mighty Food Farm grow a wide variety of certified organic vegetables, greens and berries, in addition to offering fresh eggs in their farm store and offering a year-round CSA, which provides a variety of share options for individuals and families. There is no cost or need to preregister for this workshop, which takes place on Wild Oats Market’s Winter Member
The co-op is located at 320 Main St.
