Want to learn how to live a simpler, more self-sufficient life in the Midsouth? Then register for classes at the Midsouth Homesteading Conference and Festival being held on Friday September 19 in Arlington, TN. And then come back the next day Saturday September 20 to attend the festival.
I will be teaching a class on Making Tinctures: Beyond the Folk Method, based on my upcoming book. You don't have to know anything about making tinctures to learn in this class. Other classes being offered are Soapmaking 101, Preserving the Harvest, Lasagna Gardening, Growing Hay, Bee Keeping 101, Preparing Your Poultry: Dressing Meat Birds for the Freezer, City Chicks: Raising Chickens in the City, 10 Steps to Living Independently and Becoming Self-Sufficient , Basic Survival Skills, and Getting Your Goats. You can find class descriptions here (including more details about my Making Tinctures class).
I will have a booth at the Festival on Saturday, so I hope you will drop by and say hello. Click here for what will be happening during the Festival - concessions, pony rides, and more!
The conference will end with lunch. The fee is $35 for the early bird registration and $45 after August 1. Lunch is included in the fee. Children eleven and under can attend free with a parent. Register here.
The festival is free! Hope to see you!
