Tree Planting: Catoctin Creek Watershed

Date:
Saturday, November 4, 2017
Time:
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Location:
Frederick County

Help CBF plant more than 800 trees on a beautiful, diversified farm that grows organic vegetables, 100-percent grass fed beef, pastured pork, and pastured poultry.

But planting isn't the only thing on the day's agenda. The Barnett's purchased this 140-acre farm a little over a year ago. They have converted corn fields to permanent pasture for their multi-species grazing operation and have constructed hoop houses to grow organic vegetables.

  • Join us for a farm tour to see sustainable agriculture in practice and learn more about it first hand.
  • After the tour, purchase items grown on the farm and place your order for a pastured turkey in time for Thanksgiving!
  • Chesapeake Buy Fresh Buy Local food guides, Amazing Grazing Directories, as well as the Consumer's Guide to Pastured Based Meats and Dairy calendars will be distributed at the event.

CBF's Headquarters office in Annapolis hosts a monthly Buyers Club with pastured meats from this farm. To join the Buyers Club or for more information, please contact info@openbookfarm.com.

This project is part of CBF's partnership with WGL Energy and Sterling Planet to sequester carbon through regenerative agriculture, converting cornfields to pastures for rotational grazing and restoring forested stream buffers.

We're sorry, the deadline for registering for this event has passed.
