At Glynwood, we believe that helping to put land back into production—even if it’s as small as a patch in your backyard—is an important part of our mission to help save farmland in the Northeast. At Glynwood Farm we have a passionate, seasoned staff who test, innovate, and teach techniques that demonstrate environmentally sustainable farming on a commercial level. But we want local backyard gardeners, future foragers, and those from our community who just want to learn more about the connection between the land and the food we eat—we want them all to have an opportunity to learn from our expertise. And so our workshops were born.
Some of our workshops are two hour overviews to get the novice started, others are full-day, hands-on, in-the-fields classes for farmers and those who want more. All of them take you outdoors, whether for a nature walk in the Spring to learn about the local flora and fauna, for an afternoon of mushroom foraging, or a day-long adventure with bees. And they are all taught by experts in their field.
