Berlin Farmers' Market Educational Community Garden Harvard Pilgrim Health Care FoundationHARVARD PILGRIM HEALTH CARE FOUNDATION AWARDS

WREN, a local non-profit uses a space owned by the City of Berlin for storing tents and tables for the large Berlin Local Works Farmers Market on Pleasant St. in Berlin. The community garden plan will include a hands-on teaching and learning garden. WREN will create nine raised moveable garden beds. Five of the beds will be planted in a manner to highlight to the communities the ability to plant in a small plot of land such as their own yard. These will be used for demonstration, education and teaching, educational purposes to share with the community during the weekly Farmers’ Market in partnership with the very active Coos County Garden Club, and any interested volunteers can lend a hand to a very visible and public community teaching garden. Other garden beds will be given to WREN members with a priority to those who live nearby. Contact Laura at 752-0060, first come first serve.

The garden beds will be planted with the intention of using the most visible section of the lot to a working edible garden as a tool to promote local foods and understanding the local Northern NH growing season. The Coos Botanical Society will host a weekly booth called ‘Ask a Gardener’ at the entrance of the fenced in lot, and give tours and talks regarding topics of interest to the public attending the large Berlin Local Works Farmers Market every Thursday 3-7pm. Topics will include growing herbs, homeowner yard composting, worm composting, growing potatoes, preserving your harvest and more.

The harvest from the teaching gardens will be available to the public and shared at the WREN information table with the Wholesome Wave double incentive EBT/SNAP matching program called Granite State Bucks.

WREN will celebrate the harvest on September 10th for the annual “Stone Soup” event, where the children’s book is highlighted and the ideas of coming together as a community with local food and making a variety of “Stone Soups” are available free to the whole community.

The Berlin Local Works Farmers’ Market runs for thirteen Thursday’s in the summer, starting June 25th from 3-7pm on Pleasant St, Berlin with vendors selling local food, creative artisans, while hosting live music, and giving demonstrations.

Teach a Class

Teach a Class with WREN

We are looking for WREN members and individuals who will teach a class about something they love. You can be a hobbyist, a student, a professional… as long as it’s something you’re passionate about.

We will highlight your work publicly—through our website, WRENzine, Facebook, MeetUp.com, local press calendars and press releases. Participating in our community-wide educational opportunities will gain exposure for you. Instructors are expected to promote and share classes through their own networks.

Instructors will be responsible for naming their class, writing up a short description for the WRENZine & scheduling the time and date of the class. Instructors will gather any monies that are due, take a full attendance, pass out and gather student evaluations at the end of class, and fill out an instructor evaluation. Instructors are paid 60% of class income and are encouraged to set the price of the class to be enough to give themselves an appropriate income. The 60% of the individual fee is paid to the instructor for their work, 40% is to reimburse WREN for the marketing, processing, management and facility overhead. All instructors must attend the instructors informational meeting prior to a new ‘semester’ beginning. All instructors will be notified of the meeting date once their workshop is confirmed.

The pricing structure for WREN classes is based on the per person attendance. Members receive a discount for all classes so please consider both the non-member and member pricing in your planning. (For example: Class fee $25 member, $30 non-member – instructor will receive $15 and 18 respectively) Please contact Laura Jamison directly if you are unclear as to how to price your workshop.

Many members have discovered that offering a free workshop is a great way to network, share your skills and create community around a topic or skill. We welcome and encourage proposals for free workshops. Please just put FREE in the box for class fees.
