Huntington Ranch workshops are full

November 5, 2010 |  1:19 pm


The word is apparently out, and the workshops scheduled for Nov. 13 at the new Huntington Ranch, including sessions on keeping bees and chickens, are full, spokeswoman Lisa Blackburn said.

A post earlier this week reported that the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens had established the 15-acre project as a laboratory for studying and experimenting with sustainable urban agriculture. The ranch won't be open for daily visitors, but it will be a site for programs and classes.

An academic workshop scheduled for Nov. 12 still has spaces open, Blackburn says.

The manager of the ranch, Scott Kleinrock, has been working on the project for almost two years and also is starting a blog on which he plans to document his work -- gathering data, offering instruction for people who want to replicate what he's done and discussing other issues.
