We cleared out a section of our farm & garden store, to make room for classes.
Short story, we’ve had a lot of success with our chicken classes, and we’re feeling inspired by the series of homesteading classes being hosted this year by Urban Growth Bounty. (Here’s their class list for 2012, on PortlandOnline.com.)
So, we want to get our hands dirty. That is, dirtier than we have already. We want to help people get the information and skills they need to live well on the land, whether that means a container garden on an apartment balcony, or a 100 acre homestead.
So, what do you want to know about… beekeeping? composting? sheet mulching? worm-keeping? cheese-making? Please post your thoughts in a comment, and we’ll consider organizing a class around that topic.
Second question, are you interested in teaching, or do you know someone who is? Again, post a comment. The best and most important skills come straight out of the resources of our own communities. We bet you’ve got a lot to offer.
Together, we can build a list of classes that’ll enrich everyone, help us all be a little more sustainable, a little more self-sufficient.
That’s the goal! Let’s make it happen!
