Eclipser Mixer Fundraiser and Harvest Celebration - Newledo Style

We gathered under the stars or actually under the eve of the barn in our newly created event space, the “Breezeway”, to indulge in foraged and farmed mocktails and appetizers. Fennel Me This and In the Weeds, crafted concoctions by our brilliant guest mixologists, Chloe and Walter, wowed the crowds, while they nibbled on broadleaf dock seed flour wraps and tarts. The walls were decorated with educational posters on each of the locally foraged plants, helping to spread the message of the myriad of benefits to be discovered in sometimes the most disparaged amongst us, common weeds. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go towards upgrading the electrical system in the dairy barn, so we can start hosting makers and events in this space.

Newledo Presents Inventor Spotlight - David Stone Community Talk and Workshop

David Stone, a material scientist from Arizona, traveled to Newledo to share about his amazing innovation, Ferrock, a carbon negative alternative to concrete. During an evening lecture and hands-on workshop David relayed the ingredients and testing he’s conducted for making this extremely durable material. One batch was made using only locally sourced ingredients including oyster shells and steel dust from brake refinishing. Workshop participants had the opportunity to view the process on how to make Ferrock and experiment with working with the material.
