Transplanting Field Day
We had a fantastic transplanting filed day at the True Roots Organics' farm. With a team of 8 people planting and 6 people triming and prepping, we were able to transplant nearly 13,000 red and sweet onions and 3,000 leeks.
Buy Extension is thrilled to have been part of this field day event, and to meet some fantastic people. Thank you True Roots Organics and everyone who was able to volunteer for the event. To read more about the transplanting field day go to: http://www.buyextension.org/blogspot

On October 17th, Buy Extension (BE) and True Roots Organics hosted a harvest field day, the third and final field day of the growing season. During this event nine participants learned how to harvest four different varieties of potatoes: yukon golds, fingerlings, purple vikings, and reds.
After harvesting we all enjoyed a chef prepared dinner out on the farm, while watching a fall rain storm.
This was the last field day of the growing season.
