We’re into December, and it’s going to be a mild winter, they say. Temps have been in the 80’s for most of November, sometimes high 80’s. More recently we’ve been enjoying 70’s, but still not much rain since Hurricane Irma in Sept.
It was way too hot for a garden in the summer (high 90’s most days…even the plate flowers wilted! ) The Fall garden looks a little better, if we can keep ahead of the wild rabbits and the ants!
Here’s a peek at some of the goings-on at Bent Pine Farm this past Fall 2017…
So much we’ve learned and so much to learn! Join us in the New Year for our ‘Lost Arts’ Workshops. Try your hand at some of the artisan crafts that are almost lost to the younger generations. Needlecraft and handwork, papermaking and bookbinding, clay arts, creative writing and storytelling.
Our Teddy Bear Project will be going strong and we’ll be looking for people who like to sew to join us as ‘Teddy Bear Crafters’. You don’t have to be local to Bent Pine to be a Teddy Bear Crafter. Folks from all over are welcome to join us for this great “sew-in”, sewing Teddy Bears for hospitalized kids. And getting paid to sew Bears! A Win-Win!
And watch for more news about our family vacation events…”Fam-Cations” on the Farm.
In the meantime…
