    Spirit of Walloon Market Garden EDUCATION
    Sun, August 25, 2019
    THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

    We have rescheduled and reopened registration for our Flowers track for Field School Spring!


    Crosshatch Field Schools are hands-on, on-farm learning days—going beyond the basics to support intermediate learners, but friendly enough for homestead-scale growers. Field Schools rely on experienced instructors and small group sizes, with both classroom time and field work for an in-depth education. Included is a local food lunch and a post-workshop social hour to continue the discussion in an informal way.

    12:30 to 1:30 pm: Local lunch

    Cut Flowers with Rachel Cross of Spirit of Walloon Market Garden: The market for flowers is shifting toward the local. Learn how to add gorgeous, ecologically-grown flowers to your operation, either for wholesale markets, event-based sales, or just for your own pleasure. Rachel will cover selection, propagation and the all-important harvest and post-harvest handling techniques, and discuss growing tips for field, hoophouse and greenhouse. See the fruits of your knowledge you gathered with your own fresh cut flowers by this time next year.



    Pricing:


    Our scholarship rate is $48. We categorize this rate as applying to beginning farmers (first three years of operation, or a farm hand), students, seniors, activists and others with highly limited income. This is an honor system—you do not need to fill out a form or contact us to apply for this scholarship—please don’t abuse it.


    Our regular price is $87. If we sold every ticket at this price, plus our grant and sponsorship dollars, we would break even.


    Thanks to the USDA and other grantmakers, as well as business sponsors, the ticket cost to you is far below the actual cost of running this event. If we received no subsidies and relied entirely on tickets to cover costs, each person would need to pay $175 to attend. We recognize that that price is not feasible for many farmers, students, seniors and folks with limited income. However, if you are able to pay $175, know that you are helping to keep the cost down for those who can’t afford it, and investing in future Crosshatch events and programs. 

     

     

    Tickets for Field School Flowers are on sale until August 22nd.
