Join us at Wakeman Town Farm to celebrate Mother Earth and sustainable farming.
Learn from local fiber artisans how to spin and weave. Wondering where the wool comes from? Watch our friends from Alpacaboose Farm shear our sheep, Cookies and Cream. Local Master Bee Keeper, Jeff Schwartz, will share their wisdom on saving the honey bees, and how kids can help. Learn about how to return nutrients to the soil through composting, either creating your own compost bin with advice from a UConn Master Composter, or channeling your food waste into commercial compost, via the experts at Curbside Compost. Hear from C-Tec Solar how solar energy can help you be more sustainable every day. And, of course, we'll all take part in the traditional Maypole dance with local caller Bill Fischer at 2 p.m. We'll also have a fab local food truck serving lunch!
