Hosts

T.D. & Sarah Holub | Garden Oasis Farm

RSVP required*

T.D. and Sarah Holub are working hard to create a diverse and sustainable farm to improve the health of people in their community. They started farming vegetables at Garden Oasis Farm in 2013 on a half-acre. Now, their farm is a 10-acre operation that includes high tunnels and greenhouses. T.D. and Sarah also have a pasture-raised broiler operation to further diversify their farm. They market through a CSA and farm-side pick-up program, and sell their produce and meat wholesale to grocery stores and restaurants. At this field day, you’ll have a chance to learn about and test a variety of hand tools, gain in-depth experience with transplanting crops and more.

*Due to the hands-on nature of this event, attendance is limited to 20 participants and registration is required. Complete event details will be provided upon registration.
