Friends of the Wagbo Orchard

The Friends of the Wagbo Orchard needs your input!

The Friends of the Wagbo Orchard (FWO) will be an all-volunteer group that manages the Wagbo apple and pear orchard. The FWO's goals, policies, and agendas are currently under development; but in general we would like it to look like the Friends of the Wagbo Sugarbush model, in which volunteers receive a share of fruit in return for their work. If you are interested in working with the FWO or would like to guide its development, please send an email to

Thank you!

Felting Free-for-all!

Felting Free-for-all!

2010 kip vilten jannetje in actieDate and Time: Saturday, February 11th, 12pm
Location: Wagbo
Cost: FREE

Come out to the Martha Wagbo Farm and Education Center for our monthly potluck program! Lunch begins at 12pm with a potluck in the farmhouse. Bring a dish to pass if you can, but it's not required. Wagbo provides drinks and table service.

The program begins at 1pm with a wool felting workshop. Fiber artists Diane Strezlinski, Jennifer Lewis, and Maria Wesserle will be on hand to teach needle felting and wet felting techniques. Learn to applique designs onto clothing, make three-dimensional objects, and create sheets of felt fabric. If you've never felted before you will be amazed at how simple the process is! Bring a sweater, scarf, or other woolen material if you would like to embellish it. Recommended ages 8 and up.
