Modern Homesteading Workshop Series - Hugelkulture: Reshaping the Land to Create Microclimates

Ecosystem Farm at the Accokeek Foundation - Accokeek, Maryland

By combining robust instruction with service projects, the Modern Homesteading Workshop series teaches participants the skills and practices that can contribute to a more sustainable, self-reliant lifestyle. Reconnect with your community and share the lost arts that (not that long ago) used to be a part of everyday life: food foraging, kitchen gardening, composting, bear wrestling (just kidding), canning and preserving, fermentation, seed saving, and season extension. Each workshop will begin with a one-hour skills workshop, including walking tours of the farm site, and conclude with hands-on work on the farm that makes a valuable contribution to a healthy, locally grown food source for residents of Prince Georgeâ?™s County.

Participants should wear suitable clothes and shoes for working outdoors, hiking trails, and getting dirty; bring a water bottle and snack! Each workshop will take place once a month, on Sundays throughout the season from 2 â?“ 5:30 pm (unless otherwise noted). Participation is free; registration is required.
