New this spring!

What’s new around the Philip Foster Farm?

The flower gardens are looking gorgeous, thanks to the weeding efforts of volunteer Stephanie Cibula, the planting efforts of (blacksmith) Sam Morse, and the tireless work of the Northwest Rose Historians, including JZH board member Gerri Morse. Please visit their website to see what they are planning for the Farm!

Suzi Trexler is coming on this summer as an intern. She’ll be working with visitors and campers, planning exhibits, building website content, and organizing our archives.

We’re excited to have the Farmhouse Nursery as our new neighbor to the north. It has taken over the feed store, and now offers a range of services for people, animals, and gardens.

Estacada Web Academy is now accepting applications for our Trails Across Time Living History Immersion Program. TAT students will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays next fall, helping with Farm tours and gardens, sharing pioneer and modern skills and learning, and building a fun community of 6th to 12th graders. Maximum of 16 students will be accepted, so early applications are encouraged!
