“Ewwww!! AWESOME!!!” is something you might hear children scream during a typical Soil and Compost lesson.
It all starts with soil.
Gardens. Seeds. Roots. Fungi. Bacteria. Compost. Every plant you eat has needed to stretch their roots in that nutrient-dense topsoil.
At our upcoming Family Farm Day, we invite you to dig into our Worm Bin and explore the world beneath your boots. Meet some creepy-crawlies and all the slimy, moldy, fuzzy friends responsible for transforming rotting death into nutrition for the living. Every worm bin is an ecosystem unto itself.
Registration $5-$15 suggested donation is requested, but not required.
We’ll be outside, on a working farm, all morning. Please dress appropriately!
Our Field Address at Topaz Farm is 17100 NW Sauvie Island Rd, Portland, OR 97231
See you there!
