Tour the Greenhouse at Midsummer Farm
We have a small greenhouse but we make a lot happen in it! The entire theme of the greenhouse changes dramatically as the year progresses, moving from propagation, to summer harvests, to winter harvests. We also couldn't help ourselves but add some warm-climate perennials and like Pride of Madeira and Ginger and Tumeric as well as a jungle of Fig Trees and other tropical fruit trees. This tour is limited to 8 people.
We do Garden-Farm Tours and Herb and Weed Walks throughout the Spring and Summer. Check our Current Schedule for Days/Times.
Purslane, Plantain, St. John's Wort...
We'll forage and find a wide diversity of wonderful edible and medicinal "weeds" that have sprung up and volunteered around our garden-farm. (We did encourage them a bit!) These same "weeds" are probably growing in your yard and garden too! And now you'll be able to safely recognize and identify them.
Early April Weed Walk
Mid-June Weed Walk
Summer July Weed Walk
Seed Hunting Autumn Weed Walk
A tour through our herb beds, gardens, and greenhouse. Meet the herbs that you have been reading about and that we talk about in our herbal workshops. We grow many of our herbs in groups according to herbal family or use, and we also grow our herbs in communities or guilds of mixed species and varieties for optimal growth. You'll go home with a clearer vision of how to grow a variety of herbs and lots of inspiration.
Garden-Farm Tour of Midsummer Farm
We get lots of requests for farm tours but we have found that we have to be efficient with our time management during the growing season. But we do try to reserve a couple days for doing farm tours in the spring and summer months. These tours are very seasonal in nature and focus on organic food production, sustainable and intensive growing methods, permaculture concepts, and microfarming.
