Encourage a bat colony…
to hang out near your home in your own-made bat house for all organic pest control. The amazing flittermouse can eat from 600 to 1000 mosquitoes/ hour! Discover more about them from bat enthusiast and DEEP wildlife rehabilitator, Linda Bowen. Work together as a family with Joe Brien to build a simple wooden bat house and learn how and where best to hang it. See Linda’s batty slideshow and continue networking over a pot-luck lunch. 10:30-1:30 Saturday, May 14 at the Local Farm barn. Suggested donation: $35/family. Because the workshops are limited in size, pre-registration and $25 deposit are REQUIRED! Please use the form below, or contact Debra@Motherhouse.us or phone 860-671-7945.

The Old-Style Life Skills Series (OSLSS) is a monthly series of workshops for the whole family devoted to rediscovering rural wisdom. Our mission in offering these classes and workshops is to foster self-sufficiency, neighborly interdependence, and sustainable agricultural practices.
This workshop about bats has been made possible, in part, thanks to a donation from Progressive Medicine, Litchfield, CT.
