Rampfest 2019 Workshop Registration
Rampfest 2019 is just about here! We are excited to have a variety of spring educational workshops available, and look forward to getting to share this wonderful time of year with you. Below is a list of the workshops being offered, please select up to one per time slot.

In addition to the workshops we will have a "ramptastic" lunch served at 12:15 and dinner served at 5:00 as well as beer and refreshments all day. Come for one workshop, five workshops or just for a ramp grilled cheese sandwich and a beer! We' will have outdoor games, a children's corner, and self guided tours all afternoon.

Please Note: We want to make this event accessible to as many people as possible so we do not have a set price to attend. However we are asking for donations to cover instructor fees and set-up costs. Donations can be made via cash, card or check at the event. Suggested Donations are $10 per workshop.

If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us at farmers@bandestrees.com, or call (608)799-9380.
