Fozzie’s Farm will host a Sowing and S’mores event for Spanish-speaking families and individuals Nov. 17 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 19760 Road W in Lewis.
“Sow a tree, walk on the farm and enjoy a meal by the fire: a free Spanish event for the whole family!” the translated version of the poster says.
Fozzie’s Farm, which is owned by the Montezuma Land Conservancy, is an 83-acre working farm and education center, said Fozzie’s Farm’s Aidan Gauthran.
The event will start with a time of planting trees as a group before a bonfire and s’mores. According to Gauthran, the point of the event is to give Spanish-speaking families and individuals time together outdoors.
“I think it’s providing an opportunity for Spanish-speaking families to get connected to the land and landscape around them,” Gauthran said. “It’s a way to get folks outside to enjoy the fresh air and enjoy the beautiful landscape that we have here in the Four Corners while doing something that is productive and hands-on.”
Gauthran also said visitors may talk with members of the Montezuma Land Conservancy, and share how it can help address their needs.
