2. Homesteading

May 4 9am - 11am

Homesteading is a life style of self-sufficiency and sustainability. It involves everything from growing your own food, to producing your own energy. This is where the course gets a little deeper into the “lifestyle”, and what it means to be both dependent on your community, and independent on your own.

What you’ll learn: learn to produce and provide all that you need to live. This includes the true basics of cooking from scratch, canning/pressure canning and preserving food, as well as keen insight into what it’s like to actually live the life of a homesteader.  

 3. Bees 

May 25 9am - 11am

Bees are a super organism. Harnessing the power of the individual for the benefit of the collective is central to the organization of all super-organisms, including humans.

What you’ll learn: our beekeepers will not only introduce you to bees, but their function/importance in our life.
