Farming Off-Grid, One Earth Farm tour October 12th

October 12, 2012. 10am – noon. Farm Energy Field Day Series: Farming Off-Grid. One Earth Farm.  Berkshire NY. Erika and Mauricio Medina will give us a tour of their small off‐grid permaculture farm. The farm provides vegetables, eggs, raw honey, turkeys, chickens and wool from a small flock of Finn sheep. A 3kW solar photovoltaic (1.5PV is currently installed) system powers the family and farm’s current electrical needs (including water pumping). Erika and Mauricio have a small CSA and offer workshops at the farm in sustainable living skills, renewable energy, and permaculture. They also run a Renewable Energy Business (One Earth Energy) which designs and installs solar PV and solar thermal systems with a specialty in off-grid/battery based systems. If you are interested in low-input, off-grid farming and homesteading, this tour is for you! Free and open to the public! Refreshments will be provided. Map | Register here or email vws7@cornell.edu
