Announcing a new Meetup for Community Green Meetup!
What: Reskilling with Transition Newton - How to Sharpen Anything
When: Sunday, June 6,[masked]:00 PM
Green Quest Farm
231 Pequest Rd
Andover, NJ 07821
Come learn the timeless art of sharpening at Green Quest Farm.
Sunday, June 6th, 2pm workshop, potluck to follow.
Pete Tischler, local craftsman, woodsman and furniture maker, will guide us through how to sharpen anything. From garden tools (if you don't sharpen your shovel, you're working too hard) to scissors (if you can cut paper you can cut anything), we will sharpen anything. Feel free to bring antique tools as well... that big old buck saw on your front porch or the ax from your grandfather. Depending on the group's interest, we may learn how to fell a tree on the property, saw it into stove length pieces, and then split it by hand. Due to the nature of the workshop, please do not bring children under 12 or pets. But do bring work gloves!
This workshop is the first one of the season for Transition Newton and Green Quest Farm. There is no fee for the event but donations are welcome towards Transition Newton. Join us afterwards for a potluck dinner, where we will host an open dialogue regarding the interest in future reskilling workshops, such as Water Catchment the Permaculture Way, Bio-Char, and Working with Cob, to list a few. Bring any food you'd like to share, and a guitar or drum and enjoy our riverside garden and the company of friends.
Green Quest Farm is located on the Pequest River and is the site of the historic Tom Wolverton Tavern, an all stone structure built in 1750 which also served as the county seat in 1755.Transition Newton
