Apple Tree Sale @ Shellee's Greenhouse

Shellee's Greenhouse, Madelia, has invited Alternative Roots Farm to be a part of her Opening Day/Earth Day!

We will have apple trees for sale all day, 9:00am-5:00pm at the greenhouse. John will be there from 12:00-4:00pm, to answer all your apple tree questions! Plant a tree for Earth Day! Larger trees are $30 or $45, smaller trees are $11, or 3 for $30.

March for Science @ Herman Heights Park

Gather to celebrate all that is awesome about science and hear some great speakers!
The event kicks off at 10:00am. Brooke will be the farmer guest speaker at this event - come and hear what science means to her, and our farming. Several other speakers - teacher, ecologist, doctor, and a science enthusiast - will speak, followed by an act of service.

How great that this is happening right in our backyard?! Come and celebrate! 
Details here, or below:

Hermann Heights Park, New Ulm  •  Sat., April 22  •  10:00am-1:00pm 
To support publicly funded and communicated science and evidence-based policies as pillars of our society and our freedom! Who should come? Everyone is welcome! This is a family-friendly event.

What are we doing? The event will kick-off with local inspirational speakers (farmer, teacher, ecologist, doctor, and a science enthusiast) who will talk about what science means to them. We will then participate in an act of service: picking up trash in the park and woods area as well as cutting down invasive buckthorn and hauling the brush into piles.

We will not be marching, but instead will be gathering for a Science Celebration. Signs are welcome, but please keep them positive and focus on what science means to you. 

What to wear? Your favorite science shirt, gloves, sturdy shoes, clothes you don't mind getting dirty for the trash/ buckthorn removal portion of the event.
