Hide Tanning Workshop

October 17, 2018 – 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center. Join MOFGA and local instructors Trevanna Grenfell of The Wildwood Path and Sean Murphy of Murphy Family Farm for a day exploring the ancient skill of turning animal hides into soft leathers or beautiful furs. For farmers and hunters through the ages, the hide has been one of the most valuable parts of any animal – but only if they know how to treat it! We'll spend the day learning the basics of hide tanning in the traditional way, and you'll go home with the know-how and skills you need to start tanning on your own. Bring your questions and your willingness to learn, but please contact us if you would like to bring your own hide so that we can determine whether your particular project fits with the workshop. We'll work on rabbit hides together and you'll have a chance to see demos of other types of hides so that you can get a feel for how to work with different styles. We will approach this skill with sensitivity and compassion, but hide tanning isn't for the faint of heart! Be prepared to see, touch, smell, and talk about raw animal hides – and to experience the magic of turning rawhide into leather! Registration

Tour Pine Root Farm in Steep Falls, Maine

Talk with farm owner Ruby Nelson about her work on food access

October 17, 2018 – Wednesday, 5 p.m. Pine Root Farm, 1000 Pequawket Trail, Steep Falls, Maine. Join us for a tour of Pine Root Farm and a conversation with Ruby Nelson about her work on food access.  Ruby uses five different models on her farm to share fresh produce with low income Mainers. She'll provide an overview about how her work developed and open up the conversation for others to share their models, experiences, or questions. We'll also discuss the UMaine Extension Harvest for Hunger program and how Master Gardener's and other volunteer groups are working with farmers like Ruby to address food security. Farmers, community partners, volunteers, and any other interested parties are welcome. Potluck supper. For information email alibby@mofga.org.
