Upcoming Day Trips 2022

I love providing opportunities to go to places and events in the Northland, to learn, and build community.

Thanks to those who went on the April farm tour to Canosia Grove farm.  We saw lambs, adult Icelandic sheep, learned about making cider, keeping chickens, and the local farm buying system of REKO.  Learn more about REKO on their Facebook page where you can buy from multiple local farms.
