Gather & Grow: Tour KiwiHill Farm
August 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for a tour of Kiwihill Farm in Sidney, Maine! You may have seen Tom swapping treasures at the Seed Swap & Scion Exchange, at the Common Ground Country Fair teaching about garlic, or lending a hand at the Maine Heritage Orchard. Now you can join him for a tour at his place, where he and his family grow a 1/4-acre garden, which combined with their extensive fruit plantings, produce much of the food they consume.
The gardens are set up with drip irrigation, a seven year rotation system, and extensive use of trellising. Their owner-built, passive solar, stone house keeps them warm in winter, cool in summer. Their root cellar stores food for the year. Tom is knowledgeable about seed saving, creative growing techniques and more.
This event is part of our Gather & Grow series of homestead tours.
