We are trying to capture those so that if you have a similar project maybe we can help. Let me make the mistakes so you don't have to. This months feature is how to build a wooden frame for your broken metal canopy cover. Wooden Canopy Frame
RCV Blog on blogspot.com: I do not BLOG. However, Elizabeth is very good at it, when she has the time to think and write. She will give you an insight to the personal trials and tribulations of keeping the farm going, various "How-To" articles and general all-around farm stuff. We are archiving the articles now on our site on the blog page and on the library page.
EDUCATION: The 2013 schedule will be on-line by Feb 1. Class Schedules ALWAYS REGISTER FOR CLASSES so we will know how many to expect; some of the classes have limited seating. Classes are subject to change without notice. Most of the classes are two hours in length and the normal cost is $20.
I started this last year and it was so successful I am offering past students a chance for refresher courses again this year. Providing the class is not already full, any class that you have already taken YOU CAN TAKE AGAIN FOR FREE. I usually offer new information in each class plus it's a great way to reinforce what has been presented before. ALSO, if you take three classes in one calendar year, the forth one is half off! Call or email me to register. YOU WILL HAVE TO TELL ME if it's a free class for you that way I don't have to keep track of everyone! (The optional make & take fee is extra.)
APPRENTICE: Rocky Creek Valley Farm is starting from scratch, building a sustainable, viable, self-supporting farm. Contact us for information if you are interested in learning chemical-free gardening, raising wholesome chickens or growing, wild-harvesting and using herbs. Participate in fixing fences, cleaning barns & chicken houses, shoveling compost, and pulling weeds. You will get sweaty, dirty and tired, but your heart will be happy and you will have a smile on your face. You will re-connect with the Earth. You will sleep better, tone your cardio-muscular system and get plenty of vitamin D. And, we'll feed you.
