OTN:  Autumn Conference at Riveredge

  • Meet-up will be on October 14th , Thursday, in the Barn at Riveredge at 5:00
  • Pot luck dinner
  • Soil Health Demo and presentation with Andy Holschbach and speakers (to be named) from Clean Farm Families. - This presentation has received rave reviews and has influenced farming practices in the area. The Soils demo trailer will be outdoors. It is a part of a large initiative in our area to improve soil health - and everyone's health because of this.
  • Shameless plugs and networking as always.
  • Riveredge has a large, well-ventilated space, so we should be good if things are stable with the virus.

Our March 2020 Conference had to be called off because of the Covid 19 virus, which was not even on the agenda.  Who knew?  So, it has been a very long time since this group has had a chance to gather.  Rather than set a formal agenda, (our Steering Committee has not met either) this gathering will be about catching up, with out traditional Shameless Plugs being the focus.

1.  We have a date. a time, and a place (thank you Jessica Jens and Riveredge)

2.  Monday, June 7th, starting at 4p.m. with our meeting at 5:00 pm.

3.  Place:  Riveredge's old Sugar Bush building, now called River Outpost. There is both indoor and outdoor space to gather and eat.  Here is a map of Riveredge.

note from Jessica on parking: Please let everyone know we will meet at the River Outpost. Folks will need to park in the West Parking lot nearest Newburg and hike a short trail down to the River Outpost. If anyone has physical challenges, we do have a couple of parking spots at the River Outpost, but they are very limited. If you'd like to park at the River Outpost for the ease of anytype of unloading/loading, you certainly can.  We have 5 parking spots down there. 

4.  Marjie will let you know what CDC guidelines say near the end of May so we can plan.  It might be a "bring your own picnic."  We will see. 

Conference on hold until Covid 19 gets off our island.  Stay tuned.

Save the Date:  March 17th.  What greener way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day is there?  

"Sharing the Green"

Time:  5:30 p.m.  There will be plenty of time later after for going out that is your St. Pat's tradition. 

Where:  Mequon Nature Preserve, PieperPower Education Center, 8200 West County Line Road, Mequon, WI
