An Afternoon At Sweetwater Farm, August 13
Sunday, August 13 from 4 to 7 pm
Wander through rows of organic vegetables, peek into greenhouses filled with John Karlik's wondrous inventions, and visit Lynn Crosby's hens. It's all there as John and Lynn host an afternoon at Sweetwater Farm and Nursery.
For our repast, John and Lynn will roast vegetables picked minutes before and serve pizzas fired in their wood burning oven.
Iris Hill winery will serve a glass of wine (included in the price). Additional beverages will also be available, including Lynn's ginger soda made from fresh ginger.
This is a kid-friendly event, so bring yours along. We'll have activities to help them get to know the plants and animals. IMPORTANT FOR PARENTS: Sweetwater is a working farm, so parents need to supervise and keep track their children.
The farm is located west of Creswell. (From Eugene, go south on I-5 to the Creswell exit (6.7 miles from the 30th Street on-ramp), turn right (west) on Oregon Ave. which becomes Camas Swale Road at the edge of town. Continue 7 miles. Just as the road starts going uphill, turn left on Weiss Rd. Sweetwater is the first driveway on the right.) DO NOT USE COMPUTER GENERATED MAPS!!! They will get you lost.
Sweetwater's phone number is 541-895-3431.
Buy your tickets at Long's Meat Market, Newman's Fish Market, and Pepperberries. There are only 30 tickets available, so don't wait until the last minute.
Tickets are $15 for anyone 12 and older. Kids under 12 are free. The price includes a glass of Iris Hill wine. Beverages and really great tasting food will be provided.
When you buy your tickets, there will be a sign up sheet so you can tell us the number and ages of children who will be attending. This information will help us plan appropriate activiities.
If you have questions or would like to help, call Sally Mann: 541-344-4607. If you have questions about the kids activities, call Ed Durkee: (541) 501-1208.
