Join the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy at our Community Farm, with SAHC’s very own Community Farm and Food Program Associate Chris Link. The 135-acre Community Farm provides a joint model for environmental sustainability and productive agriculture. Participants will take a brief hike around the farm’s Discovery Trail and enjoy a beautiful sunset on the ridge. While we wait for the moon to climb, Chris will share a brief lesson on nutrient cycling and vermiculture on the farm. Moonrise will occur at 7:27 pm — and  we can all wriggle around in honor of the worms whose soil is beginning to soften with the approach of Spring!
