Guided Farm Tour at littleGrasse Foodworks
September 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join farmers Bob Washo and Flip Filippi for a tour of their diversified gardens to learn about their Homestead Share, which grows bulk amounts of vegetables and herbs for participating shareholders to preserve for the off-season. This session will focus on how littleGrasse plans and manages dozens of vegetable and herb crops in a subsistence gardening model that feeds participating shareholders throughout the year.
Join us to learn more about this approach from farmers Bob and Flip as well as special guest speakers with their own homestead gardening and preserving experience, and about how this way of growing food fits into long-standing regional traditions of living off the land. This session is part of a season-long partnership between littleGrasse Community Farm and area non-profit TAUNY called Grow and Tell. This event requires registration and space is limited.

littleGrasse Foodworks is a “diversified small-scale farm 1 mile from the village of Canton. Using zero pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers, we grow vegetables, flowers and herbs for people living or working in the Canton-area. The model we follow is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Our CSA encourages a meaningful connection between YOU the shareholders, US the farmers and THE FOOD that is naturally grown in the 3 acres of gardens. Our share options are unique and delicious! Individuals can sign up for one or all of the three complementary options: Summer you pick share, Fall (we pick for you) share and Bulk Share. Join us for healthy fresh produce, family-friendly learning opportunities and the pleasure of community building through food.”
