Spring Happenings

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Yay for Spring planting! Our winter hibernation time has been restoring, and it's been fun sharing the land with Ampersand residents Jessica, Brandon and Lisa.
Scroll down for a full list of classes and events through the end of May, and check out Earth Medicine, a new offering we are excited about. Many of the classes are at other locations but find the events at Ampersand by looking for the ALL CAPS. Thanks!
Thanks to Nicole Gilkey for apprenticing with us this Spring! Here she is crushing eggshells to add to our potting soil. Her intelligent help will be indispensable for getting all the seedlings raised and ready for our plant sales April 14th and May 12th.  Thanks to the Mine Shaft Tavern in Madrid for hosting along Hwy 14 in Madrid again this year!

Get Hands On!

Want to help out with our plant propagation, greenhouse, and gardening activities this spring?  Contact us and we can let you know of some dates that we will be open for volunteer help!

We are also now accepting folks for Work-Trade Positions starting mid April.

New Event! Earth Medicine
April 1

Treat yourself to a day deepening your relationship with our beautiful Earth.  Welcome a love for the Earth into your heart and open to her warm embrace.  Practical guidance can include information on composting, gathering wild foods, and caring for the land to encourage more connection with the Earth in daily life.  There will also be opportunities for reflection within an atmosphere of gratitude.   This gathering includes a tea-time steeped with plants on the land, and a hike to special spots.
