Please join us for our new series of Homesteading Classes. These classes are meant to reunite us with the land that supports us through traditional craft education, skill building workshops, and field experiences. Using Weir River Farm as our classroom, our partners will lead participants through in-depth and hands-on educational programs to teach new skills and inspire appreciation for New England's natural resources.
