GRAPEVINE'S NASH FARM INTRODUCES FIRST FRIDAYS AT THE FARM SERIES

Series of educational events highlight importance of farm life in early Grapevine
GRAPEVINE, TEXAS (January 23, 2013) - Grapevine's Nash Farm introduces a new series of educational experiences entitled First Fridays at the Farm. Starting in February 2013, Nash Farm will host a monthly family-friendly series of educational experiences designed to teach life skills that were important to a Texas farm in the 19th century.
Daily life in the late 19th century Texas required knowledge of a number of skills, methods and even recipes that will be demonstrated during the monthly sessions. The Nash Farmhands will be working with participants at the sessions to teach these life skills. Each month features a different theme and a participation fee of $3 per person is required. All sessions are scheduled for 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. The session schedule for 2013 is:
· Foodways, February 1
· Urban Homesteading, March 1
· Textiles, April 5
· Farm Fun, May 3
· Crops, June 7
· Keeping Cool, July 5
· Cotton, August 2
· Craftsmanship, September 6
· Campfire Cooking, October 4
· Textiles, November 1
· Farm Fun, December 6
