A family-friendly site, Jeans Farm is a collaboration between the Learning Gardens Institute, Mother Earth School, Sunnyside Environmental School, Rising Stone CSA and Steve Johnson & Elora Cosper, whose family has 130 years of history on this land. Learning Gardens Institute and the rest of the Jeans Farmland partners invite you to support theexpansion of the farm’s outdoor kitchenarea to create richer learning opportunities for youth & children and increase kitchen capacity for hosting public events. Natural builder extraordinaire Eva Edleson will help us build a new and improved cob oven thatr euses all the materials of the original oven being taking down after seven great yearsof service. We’ll also work on building roof structures for this oven and future kitchen features and install a new sink station andwater system. There will be garden and farm projects happening throughout. Come during our public hours and help us build an educational kitchen and tend the learning gardens.
