Please join us for this celebration on Saturday between 3 pm and 5 pm to honor our supporters, volunteers, and participants for this summer's accomplishments. Cheer our kids on as they receive their hard-earned apprentice t-shirts. Meet our staff, volunteers, participants and their families, supporters, and the animals. Take a barn tour and make a new friend or two! The celebration will be held at Hand In Hand Farm's main facility at 35105 Ede Road, Lebanon, OR.
Saturday Sessions and "Rebuilding Your Self and Your Family" Class on Hiatus, Summer Day Camp Starts Soon!
Our last regular Saturday Session for the spring occurred May 26, we will have occasional Saturday events such as parades, which are by invitation, the remainder of the summer. We will continue Saturday Sessions after school starts up in September.
The "Rebuilding Your Self and Your Family" class will not be held Tuesday, June 5, but will resume on June 12th to finish out the series.
Summer Day Camp starts on June 18th. If you would like your children to participate, please review your calendar and ours and schedule with us which weeks you would like your children to attend so we can plan how many new participants to invite in the remaining time slots. Please remember that in order to make serious, lasting changes in your child's life, they should be attending most of the sessions of the summer day camp. The same is true of the building of skills to achieve any new apprenticeship levels. Since we are scheduling a staff vacation, you may not see responses to your queries between June 4 and June 13th.

If you are interested in taking our "Rebuilding Yourself and Your Family" class series, it is not too late to join in tonight or even a week from tonight, we can get you caught up. After that, however, your next chance to take the class will be in September, which is a long way away if you are having trouble!
The Albany Home and Garden Show is April 27, 28, and 29 this year. On Saturday, starting when the doors open at 10 am, we will be giving tickets for free mule wagon rides to the first 250 visitors to our booth!
For our volunteers and participants, we will need lots of knowledgeable people on hand to help throughout the day. Let us know if you are available to help, and we'll see how you can fit into the scheme of things!

Friday, April 20, 9 am to 6 pm
Saturday, April 21, 9 am to 6 pm
Sunday, April 22, 1 pm to 6 pm
We are a nonprofit selling bare root fruit trees to help fund our spring and summer programs for kids and families. See what we do at www.handinhandfarm.org.
All of the fruit trees are semi-dwarf, dwarf, or ultra dwarf. Many of these trees are huge! Well-branched trees that will bear probably next year are only $20! Prices start at $5 for smaller trees. I have pictured some stock photos of the fruit varieties to give you some ideas. I have some pollination charts, it's good if you come with a list of trees you already have so you can pick varieties that will give you the best cross-pollination. Most trees require another tree of the same species but different variety to pollinate it. You may need to purchase two or more varieties for good pollination.
Apple: Pink Lady, Jonathan, Snow Fameuse, Gravenstein, Summer Rambo, Yellow Delicious, Red McIntosh, Fuji, Wolf River, Spitzenburg, and Northern Spy
Espalier-pruned two way apple combo: Gravenstein/Granny Smith
Pear: Luscious, Flemish Beauty, Highland, Seckel, Bartlett, Anjou
Sweet Cherry: Stella Cherry
English Carpathian Walnut (this is not a dwarf, will probably be quite a large tree!)
PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY!!!!!!!!! KEEP YOUR SPEED TO 5 MPH FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR PARTICIPANTS AND THE CONDITION OF OUR DRIVEWAY!
