on Farm Table's Patio & in the Garden
Calling all gardeners! In the height of summer, let’s take a break and think about how the experience of gardening is enriching our lives. We will share some of our favorite lessons learned along the way, and the many ways that gardening continues to teach us about ourselves. Bring a funny or heart-warming story about what your garden has taught you this year!
Whether you followed along with our weekly gardening tutorials last year, or have been this year, or not: join us for these monthly Happy Hours in our garden. You’ll have the opportunity to meet other backyard gardeners from the area and grow our gardening community. Farm Table and Hungry Turtle Farm gardening instructors, Sue and Sal, will take questions, facilitate discussion on our monthly theme, and you’ll all learn from each other while enjoying a drink in the gentle summer air.
We’ll gather at Farm Table’s patio and garden from 6:30 to 8 PM every second Thursday, July through September.
The cost of $15 includes one drink (beer, wine, or kombucha); come early to grab a meal at Farm Table’s restaurant! Limit of 15 folks, so reserve your spot today.
[Please follow CDC recommendations for proper sanitation and social distancing practices. This event will be held outside, but bring your mask for times when social distancing is not possible. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held the following week, Thursday from 6:30-8 PM.]

Sue Katt is the Farm Director at Hungry Turtle Farm, where they focus on vegetable seed saving and raising heritage breeds. Sue farmed in Vermont for many years before landing in Amery, raising vegetables, seedlings, blueberries, grass-fed beef, and producing maple syrup. Prior to that, Sue spent 10 years coordinating the Duluth Community Garden Program, where she provided education on organic gardening and composting.
Sal Daggett is in her fourth year of running Roosterhaven, a sustainable farm specializing in produce, perennial fruits, and poultry. She and her partner Joe, a chef-turned-farmer, market their crops to nearby restaurants and through retail sales on the farm. For a decade prior to becoming a full-fledged farmer, Sal was an avid backyard gardener, focusing on vegetables as well as medicinal and culinary herbs. Sal has an academic and professional background in biology and education, focusing on soil science, ecological restoration, and environmental justice. These ideas have informed the way she works with the land, attempting to reflect natural cycles and integrate agriculture into native plant and animal communities.
