Holistic Spray Workshop
April 16th, 2022, 8am - 9am
Ever wondered about the mysterious 'Holistic Spray' we mention? Learn all about it in this workshop. Join us bright and early to discuss spraying, the ingredients in a holistic spray, when and where, and most importantly, why! We will show you our set up and offer advice to make your own spray, for your own localized pest and disease pressures. Rain date TBD if needed. Email email@example.com to get your name on the list - space is limited so let us know asap. Cost: pay-what-you-can, up to $20/person, funds will go to our test orchards.
London Seedy Saturday
April 23, 2022!
Stop by the Silver Creek Nursery booth to buy trees, orchard supplies, or ask questions. There will be lots of other interesting vendors at Seedy Saturday, as well as free gardening workshops, children's activities, and seed swap.
Apple Grafting Workshop
BOOKED for 2022
This is a hands-on workshop where you will learn to graft and take home 5 apple trees at the end of the day. For pricing or to sign up, contact us and we'll send you a registration form.
Annual Fruit Tasting Open House - Saturday Oct 15 2022
Note: this is a free event, but please consider supporting our hard working vendors. Please also consider the extra strain the pandemic puts on us all, and have patience while we safely muddle through this event!
Have you ever wished to sample some of our interesting varieties before buying a tree? Stop in during our annual fruit tasting open house! You can sample various apples and pears and take a self-guided tour of our holistically-managed test orchard.
The Tasting: this year, the tasting will be held in and around the sales area as in past years, but this year we will have the white hoop house set up for you to get your samples, then take them to the seating area to enjoy there.
Making Cider: We'll be doing cider demos throughout the day, approximately every half hour. This is an interactive activity, with children (and adults!) helping toss fruit in or turn the crank. All helpers must sanitize their hands first.
Self-Guided Tour: This hasn't changed much, though since we pastured the pigs through the orchard recently, the ground is considerably less even; stick to the main driveway in the orchard for smoother walking.
Other Vendors: The following vendors will have some wonderful goodies to buy!
- Huckleberry Hives (honey and candles made by my sister)
- Lynn River Farm (charcuterie boxes and baked goods with local, organic emphasis)
- Momma Bear's Quilts (quilts and quilted things made by my Momma)
- Wayne and Rosanna's succulents and eggs (grown/raised here)
- Tim's Veggies (organically grown here at the nursery: beets, squash, potatoes, pumpkins, etc)
- and of course, us, Silver Creek Nursery; we'll have a shared booth with Lynn River Farm's foods and Wayne and Rosanna's goodies.
