Composting 101 Series will be held Sunday from 10 a.m.-noon at Carter Historic Farm. This is part one of a composting journey that will be taking place throughout the summer, and watch as compost transforms into an organic “black gold” for plants to thrive in. Learn the fundamentals of composting, various forms of composting, how to make a successful compost, and why composting is important for the environment. This will be a hands-on event for those interested in getting a little dirty, but attendees are welcome to simply observe as well. Attending all three sessions is encouraged but not required. Leader: Stephanie Ross
Buckwheat Planting will be held July 5 from 11 a.m. until noon and 1-2 p.m. at Carter Historic Farm. Watch historic equipment in action and learn how buckwheat was planted using an early wooden 1900s grain drill. Leader: Chris Dauer
