Are you a farmer or grower and would like to learn some basic carpentry skills to enhance your farm? Whether you're a beginner or an experienced grower, there may come a time when you'll need to build, repair, update or remodel structures on your property. Join us for part two of our Basic On-Farm Carpentry workshop where you will put your skills and knowledge to the test as we work together to build a simple on-farm (or in-garden) washing station. This workshop will be led by Brandon Iker, PhD, so bring your enthusiasm, questions and desire to learn! Don't forget to wear closed toe shoes, and bring a pair of gloves and eye protection if you have them. Additionally, please bring water and a snack since this workshop takes place during supper time!
