The Amigo Farm tour is always a good time. We meet in Cedar City early in the morning and enjoy hot beverages and pastries before we load the shuttle bus. Symbria Patterson, a founder of Red Acre Center, will be aboard as your guide enjoying an organic lunch and snacks along the way.
So if you are up for a full-day adventure, join us.
In this hands-on workshop, Alison will spill the saucy secrets of canning to be ready when the urge to call grubhub hits. You'll learn all about canning veggies in season – and no, it's not just a summer fling. Even in the icy grip of winter, local farms are dishing out a root vegetable extravaganza, and we're seizing the best from Red Acre Farm's winter storage crops - beets, carrots, radishes, kohlrabi, and turnips. Hone your culinary skills, foster self-sufficiency, and savor the flavors of preserved produce long after the workshop concludes.
A short overview of different pruning systems and discussion of pruning wounds. Followed by sensitive observations of the trees of Red Acre Farm in response to their pruning during 2023. Decisions will be made on the future pruning cycle for the trees and pruning will hopefully take place the same day. Lunch break from 12 PM - 1 PM.
A 90-minute nerd-out on small-scale, no-till-market garden tools.
Mark from BCS will give us a demonstration of Red Acre Center's new BCS 749 and flail mower, which are being incorporated into the Center's tool lending library.
Kim from Johnny's Selected Seeds will show and demonstrate the latest and greatest tools they are offering.
