2013 Sustainability Schools About to Get Underway!

I Love Memphis/FlickrOur 2013 Sustainability Schools schedule is now posted!  Registration is open for our first workshop, “Soap from Scratch”, which will take place on Saturday, Feb. 23rd from 2:00-4:00pm. Registration is $6 for Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) members and $8 for non-members.

Students attend all workshops for free. Transportation via shuttle will be provided for students every month! (Thank you, Students Interested in Sustainable Agriculture!) If you are a student, please email  farm at dickinson.edu to register.

The Dickinson College Farm is one of several Pennsylvania locations hosting the workshops through PASA’s Sustainability Schools program, which centers on homesteading, homemaking and backyard conservation workshops for consumers interested in living more sustainably. Other locations include Greener Partners (Collegeville, PA), the Spring Creek Homesteading Fund (State College, PA), and The Home Grown Institute (Philadelphia, PA).

“We are excited for this partnership and look forward to empowering and inspiring others to grow food and help build a foundation for community-based education,” says Jenn Halpin, Dickinson College Farm director. “Farm-based educational programs provide hands-on learning and a means to exchange information that will benefit gardeners and food lovers alike,” she says.

A link to register for sustainability schools will be posted approximately 1 month ahead of each workshop’s date! Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to receive alerts when registration opens for each workshop.

See you at the farm!
