April 21st:
     Earth Day Family Fun at the Grange - Free Program
    
1:00 - 3:00 pm

Prepare to get down and dirty! Bring your recyclable plastics and newspapers to the Putnam Valley Grange and we'll help you transform them into mini-salad gardens. Kids will help us mix soil, plant seeds and water. Adults will help us make pots and learn how to transplant seedlings for a larger container garden. Bring your seed packets for swapping too!

Suggested recyclables include: Cleaned salad boxes, yogurt cups, pint and quart size round containers with lids, pastry clamshells; non-glossy newspaper. First come, first served.

Our special guests will be the Famous Hudson Valley Llamas! Ask your llama questions, give the llamas some love and attention, even walk one around on your own!  Visit hvllamas.com to see pictures of these Putnam Valley cutie pies!

April 27th:
     Backyard Farming Series: Basic Backyard Beekeeping
     2:00 - 4:00 pm

Basic Backyard Beekeeping will be presented by Regina Blakeslee.  Regina has been keeping honey bees for over five years in her backyard in Yorktown Heights, near Hilltop Hanover Farm. She has taken beekeeping courses at Cornell University's Master Beekeeping Program, Natural Beekeeping courses at the Pfeiffer Center, Chestnut Ridge, NY, and other continuing education workshops with the Backyard Beekeeping Association (BYBA) in Southwest, CT. Regina is also a master gardener with Cornell Cooperative Extension and volunteers at a community garden and Hilltop Hanover Farm.  

Honey bees have taught her a lot about walking alongside nature - observing, interacting and fair share.  She feels that we have much to learn from honey bees and that anyone feeling the call to become a beekeeper should explore the hobby because honey bees are an essential component of healthy local and regional food systems.

     Program at 10:00 am and again at 2:00 pm

Meet the Llamas

Come to the Grange and learn all about the wonderful world of llamas in a program appropriate for the entire family.

     Where did llamas originate? (probably not where you think).
     What do llamas eat and how many stomachs do they have?
     How long is a llama's gestation period? (a lot longer than you might think).
     How are llamas used by man today?

Pet them, feed them, take one for a walk. And take all the photos you'd like.

The Famous Hudson Valley Llamas are waiting to meet you!

With presenter Michelle Delco, DVM from Cornell University.

Dr. Delco worked in private practice for 4 years in the greater Seattle area.  In 2012, she decided to return to the university realm to pursue a research degree, and was awarded a grant through the NIH to complete a PhD at Cornell in the department of Biological and Biomedical Sciences.  Her research will focus on arthritis; her lab investigates the mechanisms that cause progressive of joint damage after injury.
