Come out to Long Lane Farm this Saturday for some reading period stress release (nothing takes your mind off of impending finals like some good ol’ fashioned farming). This will be our BIGGEST, BADDEST, work day yet! We will continue to beautify our fruit tree slope, fix up the coop to help protect our lil chicken friends, mulching our herb spiral, and taking our annual holiday card picture! Cookies will be provided for some extra farming fuel. We will be meeting outside of WeShop at 10 am to head over. See y’all there!

Long Lang Hoop House Extravaganza!

llLast spring Eva “Bubbe” Steinberg ’17 made me a mixed CD composed of only farm-related songs. Now she’s asking you to come help Long Lane Farm move their hoop houses this Saturday 11/1. Just remember that rain makes corn and corn makes whiskey! There will be snacks, but probably not of the whiskey variety. Here are the actual facts:

This Saturday, join your favorite local student-farmers as we take on the hoop houses!! These massive structures keep our veggies nice and cozy, but they aren’t in the right place! Help us with this task, and feel as warm and happy and good as our wee lil greens will in their new homes! Snacks will be provided!

Date: Saturday 11/1
Place: Long Lane Farm (near the rugby fields)
Time: 10 am – 2 pm

Queer Farmer Film Project

Long Lane Farm writes in:

The Queer Farmer Film Project is coming to Wesleyan!  Join some of Long Lane’s own queer farmers in watching “Out Here,” a documentary about queer farmers in the United States.  We’ll also be joined by the director, Jonah Mossbergwho will be answering questions after the film.  The movie, as described on the website:

Out Here is a full-length documentary film created by the Queer Farmer Film Project.  Completed after 4 years in production, it looks at the experiences of queer farmers across the country and asks – what does it mean to be a queer farmer, is agriculture a safe space for queer people, and what are the relationships between food production and queerness? It is the filmmaker’s dream that this project will give voice and visibility to queer people in agriculture and inspire a flagrant national discussion about gender and sexuality as they are related to our food system.
