Restoring Heritage Grains | Richard Roberts & Eli Rogosa
Join us to learn the practical skills to grow heritage wheat - from soil prep, seeding density and disease prevention to selective seed-saving, harvesting, threshing and processing in your backyard or small farm.  Traditional peasants have grown heritage grains for millennia.  It’s easier than you think! 

Participants will receive a gift of rare heritage wheat seeds to grow.

Interested participants are invited to continue on the grain track by joining Jesse Cottingham for a scything demo and Lu Yoder for an informal talk about his pedal-powered grain equipment.
