April 25th – Plant Out Party at Factor e Farm near Kansas City, Missouri

Factor E Farm Plant Out!

Saturday April 25, 2009 11 am to sunset

Greetings Friends and Interested Parties,

Here at Factor E Farm we are very eager to grow more of our own food and complete our 5 Kingdom Community Gene Bank so that we can help others propagate their own edible landscape. As part of that plan we need to plant some annuals after the first frost. Planting a big garden is a lot of work, and we appreciate any help we can get. It’s a great opportunity to learn how to build a raised bed, check out the hustle and bustle of the farm and contribute to what will hopefully be the Best Harvest Ever. I can’t make any promises until things start to grow, but I hope to be leading lots of food processing workshops in the late summer and fall. Look forward to kimchi and sauerkraut workshops (take home your own crock of kimchi!), pesto workshops (take home your own homemade pesto!), wild fermentation workshops and much more.

We invite you all to come join us on Saturday April 25 to build a raised bed and plant our seedlings which have already started growing in the greenhouse.

Gardening Supplies: We have 4 hoes, 7 shovels, a few rakes, one wheel barrow and lots of good compost. I suggest you bring your own garden gloves and any tools you want.

Contribute to our Gene Bank: If you have any extra seedlings or seeds that you just didn’t get around to planting bring those too! We would be honored by any new additions to our gene bank. Check out our wish list for the 5 Kingdom Gene Bank (http://openfarmtech.org/index.php?title=Perennial_Agriculture) to see you can help us build our gene bank.

Food On Site: Please bring your own snacks and prepared food to eat. We can provide delicious rain water and lend you dishes and silverware, but we’re not yet able to provide food for the masses.

Fee: $40 for learning experience and introduction to Factor e Farm, for first-time visitors; others: free.

Thanks Again for your help and support,

Molly Danielsson Factor e Team

  1. !If you can’t pay the $40 feel free to say so. There’s no reason to keep people from playing in the dirt. If you come willing, able and with seeds to trade there’s no reason they won’t waive the fee. They’re also interested in trading trees they’ve grafted for seedlings if you have any.
