Hey there, folks!
Just stopping in to remind everyone that there are just a few days left to sign up for my Backyard Farming Bootcamp on Sunday. I've reduced the few remaining tickets by $25 for a limited time so go get 'em while the gettin' is good!
I'm also going to be doing a workshop and demo at Jewel Street Paradise each month for the fair price of $25.
These will take place on the 2nd Sunday of each month and will be about an hour to two hours long and you will receive a series of recipes handouts and some goodies to take home with you. Coffee and snacks will also be served.
Here's the schedule:
November: Winter Soup and Bread- Learn how to make amazing soup from scratch and how to bake a basic peasant loaf to accompany it. Once you know how, this will be a a weekly routine for you all winter long!
December: DIY Holiday Gifts- Learn to make amazing gifts for friends and family for the holidays; candies, ornaments, seasonal jams and cookies. These projects are so good, you'll be expected to make a tradition out of them!
January: Growing Mushrooms at Home- In this workshop you will come to understand the basics of Mycology and how to utilize materials like coffee grounds and spent grain to grow some of your own edible mushrooms. We will also discuss methods of using and preserving your mushrooms.
February Spring Garden Preparation- If you have any outdoor space at all, you will likely want to grow some of your own food in it. In this class you will assess your space and plan for your Spring garden. Learn about starting seeds indoors vs direct seeding, companion planting, bed preparation and more. Attendees will leave with a packet of seeds and a planted flat of tomatoes for their garden.
March Chickens and Rabbits: Backyard livestock is not out of the question just because you live in the city! Rabbit and Chickens don't take up much space and are reasonably quiet. In this workshop we will discuss the pros and cons of both animals, their care and how you can make it happen in virtually any location with a little imagination.
Sign up for classes will be taken by email. Please get in touch! Also feel free to contact me with any other class ideas you'd like to see made available.
