"Working with the Wild"
An Agricultural Heritage Outing to Duckworth Ranch
November 5, 11am-2pm
Come spend the day on the ranch with the dynamic Duckworth family. We'll hear their stories and philosophy as farmers who work with the wild
on 80+ beautiful acres just outside of Sebastopol. Meet a variety of farm animals, and their wild neighbors, see fall foliage on the blueberries, and relax beneath the oaks on this beautiful property for a bring-your-own-lunch picnic. There will be an easy 1.5-mile hike through the oaks and along Blucher Creek to watch for birds and bobcats. Afterward, we'll teach wool-spinning by hand, using the Duckworth's own sheep's wool. This event will be wonderful for all ages, but especially great for children to come and get a full farm experience meeting animals and learning about where our food comes from.
Hosted in partnership by LandPaths and Gold Ridge RCD, this FREE outing is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who funded the Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District's work with a quarter-cent sales tax.
