Last Friday, a couple folks from No Limits attended an educational workshop held at Perennial Roots Farm on “Permaculture Profits: Integrating Specialty Crop Production & Livestock Management”.
Steward Lundy, one of the owners at Perennial Roots, teaching us about specialty crops! Thank you Stewart for hosting this event! This on-farm workshop was held at Perennial Roots and presented by Future Harvest’s Foodshed Field School, VSU Small Farms Outreach, and the Eastern Shore Resource Conservation & Development Council.
Amy says “the daddy pig found his crew and his house!” Livestock management for small farms can be fun!
Brandon chatting to some geese on the farm!
Feed on Brandon, feed on! The piggies say “Oink oink! Yum!”
Movable chicken coops?! Very cool. Brandon thought it was interesting to learn that they keep chickens, geese, turkeys, and ducks on this farm!
Brandon really enjoyed “aerating” or “chopping up” cow poop to make manure! He says “he was happy to make food to feed the plants on the farm.”
We think that there was a really good turn out for this event! Thank you to Perennial Roots Farm for being part of educational events like these on the shore! A special thank you to the Eastern Shore Resource Conservation & Development Council for sponsoring No Limits’ participation. It was really cool and we hope to see you again for another event soon!
We also celebrated David’s birthday this week and we didn’t want to forget to include that! Happy Happy Birthday David, and many more!
