Take a walk, have some fun, learn about edible plants.
Join Jan Wirth of “Nettles & Knotweed” at Heron Pond Farm for a monthly Plant ID/Foraging Walk on the farm beginning Sunday, July 24. Jan and local forager Rob Wolfe of Yellow Birch Herbs will lead a walk on the farm each month which will focus on identifying wild and not so wild edible and medicinal plants.
Plant ID/Foraging Walk – Sunday, July 24 from 10AM to Noon. $25
Our first walk will focus on mid-summer plants that are ready to harvest in July. Dress for a warm summer day; bring insect repellant and a water bottle. A wild snack and handouts will be provided. We will meet in the parking lot at the Heron Pond Farm farm stand.

Always wanted to know more about preserving all the amazing produce from Heron Pond Farm and your CSA share?
Jan Wirth of “Nettles & Knotweed” is a University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Food Preserver. She will teach a monthly food preservation class “The ABCs of Food Preservation” at the farm beginning Tuesday evening, July 26.
Food Preservation Workshop – Tuesday, July 26 from 6 – 9PM $35
This workshop is part of a monthly series “The ABCs of Food Preservation.” In this workshop we will discuss the basics of various methods of preserving the harvest using blueberries as our primary ingredient as they are currently ripe and abundant at the farm. Snacks and handouts will be provided. Workshops will be held at the Heron Pond Farm farm stand.
Come early and pick some blueberries from the U-Pick area next to the farm stand so you can re-create what you learn at the workshop when you get home. $3.50/lb.
Please call Jan Wirth at (207) 251-2333 to register for the workshop or for more information. We will be posting future workshops on the Nettles & Knotweed Facebook page – www.facebook.com/nettlesandknotweed
