March 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$5
Science Saturdays at the LBIF partner with local experts to tackle today’s most pressing scientific, environmental, and sustainability issues that directly affect our shore community and the Barnegat Bay. On Saturday, March 30, join Tina Mueller, owner-operator of Sassafras Hill Farm in Barnegat, as she discusses Farming in the Pinelands. What is so unique about our Pinelands soil and ecosystem? Take a visual tour of Sassafras Hill Farm and learn about the process and seasonality of growing food from concept to consumption, creating a self-sustaining ecosystem, the role that bees play on the farm, and the importance of farming to carbon sequestration. Become more familiar with the terms Organic, Naturally Grown, and Biodynamic.
