Micaiah Hall of Free Haven Farms presents how to sustainably gather, store, and use rain water to irrigate crops. We will discuss principles, and techniques, and study a functioning rain harvesting, irrigation system. Hands on demonstrations, and personal consolation on building your own will take place on-site.
This event will take place at Free Haven Educational Farms in Lawnside, NJ. Free Haven Farms was established in 2017 in Lawnside, N.J. Lawnside is a suburban community, located in Camden County; not exactly where most people would expect to find a farm. But Micaiah had a vision before the couple purchased their home in Cynthia's hometown to create a homestead farm where they could raise their children and also be able to show others in their community how to grow their own food. Their location allows them and their produce to be accessible to their community. They started out in 2017 by operating a farmer's market on site on Sundays. This year, in 2018, they've been distributing their produce using a CSA model and providing educational experiences on and off the farm.
