What You’ll Do
You don’t need acres of farmland outside the city to harvest your own produce. Join suburban farmer, beekeeper, and artist David Eichorn as you explore the homegrown foods and handmade crafts at his home while sipping wine and cheese. Explore the ins and outs of honeybee hives and chickens, canning fruits and veggies, at-home woodworking, and more, before topping off the experience with tea and cookies adjacent to the garden.
Enjoy Homemade Wine, Cheese, and Canned Goods
Kick off the event with artisanal wine and cheese, and taste David’s homegrown canned fruits and veggies throughout
Discover Home-Farming Basics
From honeybees to canned foods to crafting your own cutting boards, learn the fundamentals of suburban farming
The experience lasts two hours. Each event is capped at 10 participants; each event requires a minimum of 6 participants in order to take place.
Suburban Farmer and Beekeeper
Raised on a small farm with a fruit-tree orchard, veggie garden, and farm animals, David Eichorn grew up baking bread and canning fruits in the summertime alongside his mother, an interest that would stay with him for life. Today, his suburban home functions as a working farm, and his expertise has earned him a feature as the lead beekeeper in the book Backyard Beekeepers of the Bay Area. For more than 30 years, David has taught an extensive array of subjects, harnessing the ability to teach students everything from farming to violin to criminal law.
