Upcoming Classes & Events


Bruce Bacon of Garden Farme has been a great friend and supporter of the herbal guild for many years. He is looking for a student or practitioner [or couple] with flexible living circumstances for mid-winter help at Garden Farme. "My housemate moved to town unexpectedly, my cousin was called to his family house in Idaho, and the resident intern moved back home. I am here solo with 2 sweet dogs, 2 scaredy cats and mostly wood stove.

I am hopeful someone will consider the possibility of temporary residence during Feb, March for household support and caretaking. I have a few medical appointments coming up, and legal appointments, and several evening meetings. No rent, 30 miles to downtown, bus and commuter rail lines to Anoka.
Clean guest room upstairs, indoor plumbing, Quiet, no tv, wi-fi, bird feeder, Pileated Woodpecker visits yard."
Check out Garden Farme on FaceBook to see many pictures.
Call Bruce Bacon for more information.
