On March 21st, the Live Earth Farm Discovery Program will host the 6th annual Sheep to Shawl event at Live Earth Farm. Professional shearer, Bruce Wool, will demonstrate his trade throughout the day, while his wife spins yarn alongside him. We are looking for volunteers to guide guests through hands on demonstrations of every part of the process of making wool into clothing and art. Come get involved in the community and facilitate the artistic experience of processing wool. All skill levels are welcome!

If you are unable to volunteer but would still like to support the Live Earth Farm Discovery Program, you can make a donation to our Spring Fund Drive that provides summer camp scholarships to low income and under served community members. These scholarships give young individuals the chance to explore, and discover how to be stewards of our land and community while learning to plant, harvest, and build a plate of real, mostly plant based food.
