DCWFN - Farm tour and work party (u-pick cut flower farm)

Thursday, June 8, 2017 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Rustic River Farms, Roseburg, OR
Farm tour and work party (u-pick cut flower farm)

Join the Douglas County Women's Farmer Network for the morning and learn about cut flower production. Rustic River Farms started in 2016 as a U-pick sunflower and zinnia field along the Umpqua River in Roseburg, Oregon. Now in our second year, we are expanding little by little to offer more varieties of flowers and more ways to get them in to the community through local florists, farm flower subscriptions and seasonal bouquets available for purchase at "My Coffee". www.rusticriverfarms.com

We will start the morning with a tour of Rustic River Farms and then help Anna weed and thin her recent planting of sunflowers. There will be a variety of hand hoes available for you to try out. Sara Runkel the will give a short demonstration on the ergonomics of hand tools you can network with other participants over lunch by the river.
