Come learn how to build your very own cold frame at the Grange Farm School on Riddgewood Ranch!
Saturday, March 21st

Using reclaimed windows donated from the Little Lake Grange or bringing your own, we will be splitting the day into two work sessions;
9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm with an hour lunch, and lecture on the Vernal Equinox and Rituals surrounding the first degree "faith" of the Grange. Takashi Yogi and Annie Waters will be leading the lecture.

You will be learning and constructing a cold frame of your own to take home with you the same day.
If you're not familiar a cold frame is a transparent-roofed enclosure, built low to the ground, used to protect plants from adverse weather, primarily cold. Used for season extension!!

We are giving an option at $50 dollars to participate in the workshop with all materials included; windows, hardware, 2x2's, siding, and tools. Although, tools may be limited so we suggest that you bring your own measuring tape, cordless drill, and pencil.
There is also a second option to attend the workshop at $30 dollars and bring with you your own materials or to just watch and learn without building anything if you so choose.

Both options include informative and instructive workshop, lunch, tour, and lecture.

So come celebrate your Spring Equinox with us here at the Farm School and take away some new found knowledge and an awesome cold frame to extend your growing season!
We look forward to seeing you there!
