Forest Farming with Ryan Huish

August 22 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

If you are interested in getting back to your Appalachian roots, what better way to do that than Forest Farming?

Ryan and his family have been gardening/farming for several decades at various places. At their current location, they steward a forest farm (growing edible, medicinal, and handicraft plants), and practice permaculture, no-till, animal rotation, and alley cropping. They also raise dairy goats, chickens, pigs, cows, and livestock guardian dogs. Sustainable agriculture and native food/medicine plants could be considered their specialty.

During this class, students can expect to learn about this specialty as well as funding sources to begin this important work.

The cost is $10/class or $50/all 8 classes. It is available for free to military veterans, but also available for free to anyone interested in trading the cost for 8 volunteer hours. For more information click the ticket link above.
