Tour of Simple Hill Farm and Two Local Woodshops - Register by August 21

Members will gather at Park View Mennonite Church at 9:30 am to carpool to Simple Hill Farm. We will start with a tour of the sheep farm. Learn about farm practices with rotational grazing and regenerative farming and the processing of the merino wool into yarn and the natural dyeing process. Lunch will be in Park View at Fajita Factory or Traditions. Following lunch we will gather in the parking lot there at the restaurants to divide into two groups for the woodshops at John Augsburger and Dave Weins.

Parking is limited at each place so car pooling is essential. Lunch is your choice of the suggested Park Veiw restaurants for ease of reconvening for second part of the tour. For the afternoon we will break the group into two and swap sites.
