Bicycle Maintenance Potsdam Farmer Market 5-16 2-3:30 Gazebo is reserved if needed.
Sheep Shearing @ Vanessa Bittner’s TBD ?? This was supposed to be in the Fall but might be possible at another farm, not hers, in the Spring she says - talk to her more about it.
No-Till planting with Martin’s May TBD ?? try to time this to be a couple if weeks after the Seedlingsa as a follow on. Have never managed to do the Beginning Gardener series - this might be a good year to work on that - one session or more per month on what's up next in your gardening schedule. Could be another one for Flip n Bob too, a specific thing that we could do a work party type learning event too.
Something with John Kordet? TBD May or June, possibly at Pots FM? Or his greenhouses. Give him a chance to redeem himself. :-/ Also ask him about when is the latest his students could be lined up to build the woodsplitter we've been talking about on FB. Put that on the schedule if any possibilities there! I can do more to solicit donations from Jeffords Steel etc. if he's game to do it as a demo project for us to keep and use as an educ and instructional tool with the rocket mass heater...
Composting TBD mid to late month with Janet Lomastro
