Perennial Plantings and Farm Funding at Deep Roots Farm


May 1, 2021, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Location:

Saturday 5/1 10:00 am – 2:00 pm Join Future Harvest at Deep Roots Farm in Upper Marlboro, Maryland to learn from farmer Ann Sutton. On this former tobacco farm, Ann is building high tunnels, a poultry pasture, planting a fruit orchard, and putting in perennial crops like strawberries and asapargus. We’ll do some hands-on tasks, tour the farm, and learn about the complexities of funding such an operation. Come prepared for some hands-on work in the soil: it’s transplanting time. We’ll end the day with socially-distanced snacks – please bring your own. Pre-registration required; no walk-ins accepted. $40 non-member, $20 member. Free for 2021 BFTP Trainees. REGISTER HERE
