About the event
White pine (Maine’s state flower) and Red pine are ubiquitous throughout the region and provide a vital pool of resources for human and nonhuman Mainers alike. Pine needles are beautiful, and strong! They can be coiled and sewn together to make hats, lovely usable baskets and/or adorably tiny ones.
Learn to identify, regeneratively gather and harvest, properly store and process, and weave with pine needles. We'll cover the basics of coiled basketry, which is a global, ancient human skill, and create a wonderful pine-needle basket. Every participant will make a basket to take home. $19 includes tools, materials and one fermented beverage.
Urban Farm Fermentory serves kombucha, jun, cider, mead, and beer with a focus on gruits (a beer style using few or no hops). Their tasting room features 22 rotating taps, with selections shifting seasonally. Pull up a seat, have a drink, and experience a taste of culture!
