This past weekend we held our 2nd annual Regenerative Land & Plant Propagation Course at New Earth Farm & Goods. The weather was wet and rainy but it held off enough for us to be able to do most of the hands-on activities we had planned for outside.
We made Stropharia beds, made reishi, shitake, lion's mane, and oyster mushroom logs and stumps. We learned about living soil, compost making, and compost tea. We pruned, trained, and grafted a few trees, mulberries, apples, and persimmons. We learned how to read landscapes and and played/learned about tools and techniques. We didn't get a chance to get into the beehives, because of the weather, but maybe next time.
Also, and most importantly, we ate amazing farm fresh food and got to hang out with some great people.
We hope to make a few short videos from the event in the days to come. Thank you to all who participated and supported this class including the Midlands Community Foundation in Sarpy County.
