2022-AND A NEW SEASON BEGINS
Dear Friends of Abbondanza Farm
Thank you for visiting my web site
Last year at this time, as the pandemic still had us in it's grip, I wrote in this space that I was optimistic that we would come out of this with a better sense of what was valuable and worth holding on to and what we needed to permanently abandon because it never really served us or our beautiful planet.
Well after another difficult year, I still remain hopeful and I am looking forward to an exciting, productive and beautiful season.
Education and activism is an important element of what we do here at Abbondanza Farm and after an unplanned and unwelcome two year hiatus (Thanks Covid.) I am looking forward to being able to offer you a series of informative and practical workshops on a range of topics to help you learn to grow and transform your own food and provide you with the skills to live more sustainably.
Please visit the Workshop page for all the details on this seasons events.
OUR NEXT WORKSHOP:
GARDENING FOR CHANGE
Sunday July 10
10 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
2022 has been declared the year of the garden. Mark the occasion by learning how you can make our planet healthier and more beautiful by the choices you make about what to grow in your garden and how you grow it.
The workshop will be a mix of the practical and the political as we look at how and why we need to support and protect pollinators as well as heirloom and native plants by creating hospitable habitats for these valuable insect and plant species while making gorgeous, easier to care for gardens.
The workshop will be led by Lorraine Johnson and Gwynne Basen.
TO REGISTER FOR THE WORKSHOP
MANSONVILLE FARMERS MARKET 2022
I am happy to report that the market is open for the season and will run until Thanksgiving week-end, 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
Last year, in spite of the pandemic we still had a fantastic market season with so many people coming to show their support for our local producers, their delicious food and beautiful artifacts.
And this year I am happy to say that the music and special events are back.
Visit our Face Book page Marché Public Mansonville Public Market for all the great activities happening this season.
We will have some terrific new vendors this year and of course all the proper safety protocols will be in place. So come one and all!!
Take care of yourselves and your family. Better times are here.
