The Harvest Dinner

Sunday September 11th, 2016

Gather with us around a farm table in the orchard to enjoy the harvest at The Chittle Homestead at our very first annual harvest dinner! Connect with community, tour The Chittle Homestead, and eat delicious gourmet food fresh from the garden. It all begins with summer beverages in the garden and tours of the various projects we are working on at The Chittle Homestead. Dinner will be served as the day cools off and will include gourmet food picked straight from the garden next to you (menu provided soon. Our meals most often cater to common food intolerances without you even noticing!). We will finish off the night with a gourmet s’mores (think homemade marshmellows !) campfire under the stars.

Seating is limited. RSVP HERE!  SOLD OUT!

(get on mailing list at top of this page for future dinner invitations).

Permaculture Workshop: Tree Guild Workday

Saturday October 22, 2016 – 9-1pm

Fall is the perfect time to plant trees, bulbs, and perennials…and all these come together perfectly when you plant a tree guild made up of plants that work together to help ensure their health and productivity. At The Chittle Homestead we have 16 fruit trees that are surrounded by grass. Grass is not a good friend to trees so we want to dig it out and replace it with plants that work together with the tree to promote health and create a mostly edible food forest beneath the canopy of the fruit trees. We will teach you the basics of the permaculture concept of tree guilds and fall tree/bush/bulb planting. Then provide you with an array of plant starts/bulbs and let you loose with to create your very own tree guild around one of our fruit trees. We will also eat a farm meal together (bring your own picnic and we will provide lots of special treats from the homestead too!) and maybe even do a little yoga in the meadow.

It’s a workday. It’s a workshop. It’s a moment to gather in community and put our hands in the soil together. Did you know soil has microbes that act like antidepressants ? So yeah, it’s also a therapy session.  🙂

Menu

Breakfast- Apple cider donuts (gluten free!), hash brown quiche with seasonal veg, Apple pie overnight oats, homemade chai/mulled cider/pumpkin spice lattes.

Lunch – roasted  squash soup with sage and hazelnuts, fresh baked gluten free bread, kale salad, and secret farmstay treats 🙂
