Enjoy a tour of the late April Folk School Garden. The tour includes a look at early cucumbers, melons, zuchinni, and summer squash. We are still harvesting salad greens and the beets are almost ready to pull up too. The tomatoes are planted and strawberries are just turning from pink to red. We are still using some hoops to cover some of the crops on chilly nights. The new cut flower section is looking good with early cosmos, zinnia, and snapdragon starts.
Can you guess how many feet long the Folk School rows are? Also, we just planted 1200 plants of one type, can you take a guess at which one? Watch the video to find out!

Although we have suspended classes and events until further notice, Folk School staff are working at home and individually on campus to ensure we’ll be ready to welcome you back as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so. Maintenance staff are working on routine maintenance of studios, houses, and grounds. Farmer Teddy is tending the vegetable and dye gardens. Registration staff are accepting registrations for 2020 classes. Programming staff and resident artists are planning hundreds of classes for 2021, while Marketing staff are creating the next Folk School catalog, mailing in mid-July.
