Over the last month I (Andrea) have been starting to pencil out the next six months to year on the farm and what we would like to accomplish and offer to the community. I am excited to finally offer a "mug and brunch" event in a couple weeks, which will be the first time I get to use the kiln for an event. I am hopping to expand on the pottery side of things and offer some pottery workshops in the near future, and really get that kiln fired up!
Besides workshops and classes that have already been given, we are tentatively planning another floral design class in April with our awesome friend Nancy who taught the Christmas florals class. This spring we are hoping to have a southern style farm to table dinner, with barbecue pit pork, sweet tea and some great live music. Also, I have been in the beginning stages of planning a summer fiber arts retreat that would be right here on the farm. This would be a two day event for those interested in spinning, natural wool dying, needle felting and more.
In the garden it would be wonderful to offer a gardening workshop (btw...I am working towards being a Master Gardener...exciting!). Also, we will have our now annual lavender wreath making workshop, which is really fun!
Here is the deal....I need your help to make these events even better! Please take the survey below to help us plan our future for you. I will draw a name from survey participants and the winner will win a basket of Black Acre Farm goodies!
