Learn the Ancient Art of Drop Spinning Yarn
(Tue. 6 Mar, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

Come learn to spin wool yarn on a drop spindle with Amy Reisman

Ellsworth, Maine—You are invited to come learn the ancient art of spinning wool with a drop spindle. This technique is thousands of years old.  The technology that is required is simply a wooden dowel (the shaft,) a disc with a center hole (the whorl,) a hook or notch, and a length of carded wool. That’s it. All necessary items will be provided at the class.

This relaxing hobby was once the initial manufacturing process for all fabric. Drop spinning predates the spinning wheel by about 9000 years. Amy Reisman will be teaching this craft at the Beth Wright Cancer Resource Center free of charge to anyone who is interested.

The first lesson will include assembling the drop spindle, learning about the properties of wool fiber and spinning with the “Park and Draw” method.

This craft can fit easily into a pocketbook and go anywhere. Waiting rooms and car rides can be great place to practice this time-honored craft.

The classes are scheduled to take place on Tuesdays, February 13, 20, 27 and March 6, from 2:00 – 3:45 pm. Call the Center with any questions or to register 207-664-0339.

Indian Township Rec Center to Host Fruit Tree Workshops
(Sat. 10 Mar, 2018 10:00 am - 11:00 am)

Indian Township Rec Center to Host Fruit Tree Workshops

Healthy Acadia and the Indian Township Food Pantry will offer “How to Graft Apple Trees,” on Saturday, March 10 (snow date: March 17). The workshops will take place from 10am to 12pm at the Indian Township Recreation Center.

The workshops are part of Indian Township Food Pantry's efforts to create a community garden where people can learn how to grow a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as how to cook and prepare healthy and delicious meals with locally produced food. In early spring 2017, food pantry staff and Regina Grabrovac, Healthy Acadia’s Washington County Food Programs Manager, began pruning and then grafting scions – young shoots or twigs - of old varieties of apples onto the wild apple trees located near the Recreation Center. Grafting is the uniting of two different tree or shrub varieties or stocks together in order to create a more desirable fruit. All named apples, such as Gala (a fairly new variety) and Wolf River (a variety from Wisconsin developed around 1875), were developed through grafting. In Maine, grafting is done later in the spring – April to May - when the tree's sap run is more established.

Pruning is best done when trees are still dormant- from late January into March in our region, depending on the winter. Apple trees are pruned both for ease of fruit access and to encourage increased fruit production. A few well-pruned apple trees can produce enough apples to supply several families with fresh apples, cider, vinegar, sauce, dried fruit and more. Trees that are not pruned will experience decreased fruit production and reduced fruit size, and the fruit is often located higher and higher in the tree.

“Pruning and grafting require only a few tools, and the techniques are simple and fun to learn,” said Regina Grabrovac, who will be leading both workshops. “Please join us! And, if you are already an experienced grafter or orchardist, please come and share your knowledge with the group.” The February 10 pruning workshop will be held outdoors; the March 10 workshop will include an indoor grafting demonstration, with outdoor exploration if time allows. Scion wood will be available.

For more information, contact Regina at 255-3741 or [email protected]; or Janet at Indian Township Food Pantry at 796-2781

Members purchase shares at the beginning of the year, and farmers then provide boxes of whatever happens to be in season on a regular (weekly or bi-weekly) schedule for the entire growing season. Different farmers offer different options, so come check them out at the Fair!Stay tuned for an updated list of participating farms on our website or on facebook. We aim for 15 farms in total.Cheers!The Bangor Greendrinks Familia
