Virtual Field Day: Mulberry Moon Farm

Wednesday August 25 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Venue: Online

Online via Zoom - link will be sent to registrants

Members $10 Register
Standard $20 Register

Alex and Kim have run Mulberry Moon Farm near Strathroy since 2010, but moved the farm to its current location in 2016. Now, Alex, Kim and their team (including daughter Rosemary) are working on building infrastructure while running a CSA and (usually) selling their vegetables at farmers markets. Join Alex and Kim to talk about some of the infrastructure investments and plans they have made during their transition to the new farm property, including a barn that they took down piece-by-piece and rebuilt. Participants will be sent a pre-recorded video and then join the farmers for a live discussion, question and answer session.

 

This event is offered as part of the Ignatius Farm New Farmer Training Program. Educational content is geared toward new farmers, but is open to all farmers who might be curious about a certain topic, wishing to expand their farming knowledge, or in need of a refresh.

 

Anyone wishing to attend the full Term 3 can register here. Registering for Term 3 does not require you to register for each individual session.

 

In order to make our training and community building events accessible to all farmers (and future farmers) in Ontario, the Ignatius New Farmer Training Program strives to cover registration fees for anyone facing financial barriers. Need assistance covering the registration fee? Let us know!
