Tuscan Sunset Dinner

How to Start a Survival Garden

​Are you self-sustainable? You may need to be soon. Learn to grow your own food, whether in soil on your property, in containers, or in a community garden plot.

 

We will discuss seeds, soil, tools, plant care, harvesting, seed saving, medicinal herbs, perennials, and even good weeds that are edible that you may not want to kill.  Bring a sandwich and a drink and enjoy a working lunch on the farm.

Flower Power 60's Dance

​This will be a music extravaganza of your favorite sixties dance songs, with a gorgeous view of the Kittatinny mountains, our now famous flower fields, and our Tuscan-style farm.

Light refreshments provided! Dance to the music or just listen and sing along with lots of nostalgia. Period dress optional, but highly encouraged, even if you just add beads!

There will be lessons of popular 60's dances, some easy line dancing, a "guess the band" contest, and free flower bouquets gifted throughout.

Our farm is a magical place. Come chill with us!
