C.R.A.F.T. United Piedmont October Farm Tour and Potluck
20 October, 2013
Join us Sunday, October 20, at Ever Laughter Farm from 1pm-5pm for our CRAFT United Piedmont October Farm Tour and Potluck.The special topic, led by farmers Will Cramer and Sam Hummel, will be: Tool-Sharing and Fall/Winter Season Extension
2921 Open L, Hillsborugh, NC 27278
Register here: http://octobercraftup2013.eventbrite.com/
Ever Laughter Farm is a small, diversified farm that uses sustainable methods to grow a wide variety of vegetables (including ginger, turmeric, and collards) for market year-round. Laying hens are also raised as part of a rotational system that produces some of the farm's organic fertilizer inputs naturally and on-site. The farm began in 2008 as a collaboration between Will Cramer and Sam Hummel.
Participants in October's CRAFT tour at Ever Laughter Farm will explore fall season extension as well as the workings of the Sustainable Agriculture Tool Lending Library, of which Ever Laughter Farm is a member. Thanks to a grant from RAFI-USA, ten young farmers formed the tool cooperative to purchase expensive but high-quality tools that they could not necessarily afford on their own. Tools include tractor implements such as a tiller and a plastic mulch layer, hand tools such as transplanters, and precision seeders, and a leaf vacuum used to collect mulching material. The tour will include demos of some of the tools, as well as discuss the logistics of starting and running the cooperative.
For fall season extension, Ever Laughter Farm utilizes low tunnels and low-cost "caterpillar tunnel" hoop houses to raise a variety of greens through the winter. Participants in the tour will hear about what has worked best for the farm and what mistakes shouldn't be repeated on your farm.

Workshop: All Things Peppery with Mike Carpenter
14 September, 2013
Some Like It Hot!!! Join us Saturday, September 14th from 10am-11am for a Hot Pepper Sauce Workshop with IFFS Incubator Farmer Mike Carpenter.
Mike has been spreading delight and pain around the farm lately as he pursues test subjects with plates of peppers cut into tiny slivers urging them "Here! Try this one!." Some of Mike's fermented pepper sauces are surprisingly smooth and mild and good sources of lacto-bacillus pro-biotics. Others are being studied as candidates for materials to initiate fusion energy.
At the workshop, Mike will share his expertise in pepper farming and beneficial insect conservation and some of his recipes for making his magic pepper sauces. A walk through Mike's incubator plot is a veritable pepper garden of eating with many strange and wonderful varieties. Across the road we will tour Food Shuttle Teaching Farm's commercial pepper production under black plastic. If you are going to have a pepper crop in the ground from April until October, you want to have a plan for controlling weeds.

Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is very excited to announce CRAFT United Piedmont's second farm tour and potluck of the 2013 season, which will be held on Sunday, July 21st from 3-7pm at LL Urban Farms in Raleigh. The special topic will be Indoor and Outdoor Hydroponics.

All experience levels welcome. Come ready to learn and share!
The Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT) is an international model of regionally-organized farmer training rooted in the belief that farmers learn best from each other. Through CRAFT United Piedmont, local farmers host educational tours on their farms once a month from June to November. Each tour will focus on a special topic and will be followed by a community potluck.
