How to Take a Leek: A Ramp Stewardship Workshop

Join us for our third annual workshop all about ramps! We'll find wild plants growing on our farm, discuss how to sustainably harvest and propagate them, and taste some ramp snacks! Every participant will go home with ramp bulbs for transplanting in their own woods.

About the Event

For this special workshop, we'll be teaching about the odoriferous ramp/wild leek (Allium tricoccum): the plant's lifecycle, best harvesting practices, and how to plant and grow it. After a hands-on transplanting demo and some ramp-based snacks, participants will return home with ramp bulbs of their own for transplanting (a $35 value just on it's own)! Bring comfortable clothes and shoes for walking, and a trowel/digging tool, if you have one. This workshop will take place entirely in the woods.

Note that the timing of this workshop is towards the end of ramp season. This is strategic because ramp bulbs are best transplanted when they are dormant. By waiting till the tail end of the season, we get the best of both worlds: we can still show people ramps growing and we can offer high quality ramp bulb transplants for participants to start their own patch!

Advance registration for this event is required. Please do not attend if you are feeling ill or have been exposed to someone with COVID.
