EVENT: “The Horse-Powered Market Garden” 5 January


January 5th ( Monday) , 7:00 Quimper Grange Program

Caitlin Arnold and Brandon Wickes spent eight months as draft horse interns
on a successful organic vegetable farm in Ontario Canada this past year and
will talk about working with the horses, and the tools and equipment they
used to grow vegetables for a 220–member CSA. They see draft horse farming
as a viable alternative to using fossil fuels and are hoping to start their
own draft powered farm business in 2015. This slide show will provide
attendees with a basic understanding of modern horse-powered organic
farming and will be followed by a Q and A. Resources will be provided for
those interested in learning more about and/or pursuing horse-powered
farming.

Quimper Grange is located at 1219 Corona St (North end of Sheridan)
A suggested donation of $5-10 is requested to help maintain and improve the
Quimper Grange hall.
