Events

All biodynamic preparation events take place at Zinniker Farm.

We will be hosting several preparation making events throughout the year. Preparation making has been taking place at the Zinniker Family Farm for more than three decades and we welcome you to participate in any or all of the events.

All of the events are hands on learning experiences, so dress for outdoor work.

 

Dandelion Picking

When

The date for this event is dependent on the flowering time of the dandelion blossoms. On an average year, the second Saturday in May is when they will reach full bloom, but we had earlier and later years, too.

The date is tentatively set for May 13, 2017 at 9:00am Please email us if you would like to be notified about any possible date change. This event is in the morning.
