Badger Events & Ecology Center Workshops

Badger Ecology Center

Health and well-being depends upon a good relationship with both people and our planet. The Badger Ecology Center strives promotes this in these ways:

  • We offer educational workshops to the local community focused on various homesteading arts, wellness topics, and creative & sustainable business practices.
  • We produce food for Badger employee lunches in our biodynamic vegetable & herb gardens
  • We oversee a meditation labyrinth and flower garden for employees and public to enjoy

This is our way of caring for the Earth while giving back to our local community.

Why prune? What are the benefits of pruning? When, how and with what should we prune our trees? Join us for an informative discussion and hands-on demonstration of the tools and techniques for pruning various types of fruit trees led by Anton Elbers from Orchard Hill Farm.

Presenter Bio: Anton Elbers has lived in NH since 1971 when he came to Alstead to learn farming as a young man. He helped plant and establish the orchard at Orchard Hill Farm in East Al¬stead back in 1972. Annual pruning is a large part of main¬taining this orchard that is primarily apples, but also pears, plums, and peaches on a variety of rootstocks. Anton will be sharing some of what he has learned from working with the trees at Orchard Hill over the years.
