In attempt to cultivate what we love both in and out of the field, we have begun hosting farm events. This has proven to accomplish honoring pivotal moments during the year, and bringing together community. These two things are what rest at the backbone of why we farm; connection to the earth, community, and the immense gratitude we have for the abundant world we are a part of.
August Farm teamed up with fellow artists, alchemists and visionaries to co-curate a Solstice Picnic Soiree. Margaret Hazletine, Ayla Mullen, Lily Smith, Marieclare Geyer and Marianne Copene honored the shift in seasons and the incredibly abundant growing season by hosting a farm picnic. Utilizing fresh locally grown produce we had a hand in raising and wild crafted plants to Marieclare and Lily crafted a seasonal inspired menu. Folks who attended were able to eat, drink and celabrate in this seasonal ritual and leave with a hand-crafted ceramic dish set made by Ayla and Margaret.
