The Artful Field Journal: Binding a Basic Field Journal

Saturday, January 22 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Start off the year with a brand new handmade field journal about the size of a smart phone! We’ll use basic materials to bind a simple easy-to-make book through a step-by-step process, as we fold and sew sheets of paper into a painted cover. You’ll finish our class with a journal compact enough to tuck into your purse or pocket — one you’ll be able to take with you most anywhere, enabling you to jot down sketches and notes whenever you wish!

Tuition: $25 - $45 sliding scale (plus processing fees)

Blueberry Pruning Hands On

Saturday, January 22 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hands-On, In-Person Blueberry Pruning Workshop – January 22

Love juicy, sweet just-picked blueberries from your own bushes? Not sure how to keep them performing at their best? Join Master Gardeners for a workshop on blueberry pruning. Step one is to view a recorded video at home on blueberry pruning basics: when to prune, choosing which canes to cut, and where to cut them.

Step two is to join us in-person at our Hazel Dell area demonstration blueberry field to practice your skills. This entails a 5 - to 10-minute walk up a steep hill. Those with mobility issues may drive. Dress for the weather and bring water, garden gloves, and a pair of sharpened loppers or hand bypass pruners if you have them. Masks and social distancing will be required. Space is limited and participants will work in small groups. (You may view the video at without registering for the in-person portion.)

Cost: $5. No admission without advance registration at

Repair goes Remote - Drop Off

Saturday, January 22 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
You are invited to drop off broken household items for repair. All items must be preregistered. Visit for more info and to preregister items. Then, navigate to the FVRL calendar to secure yourself a spot at a drop off event. 
Rules of thumb: All items must be small enough to be easily carried by one person. No microwaves, gas engines or bicycles. Some items may be returned without repair attempts due to space constraints.
