Want to learn how to live a simpler, more self-sufficient life in the Midsouth (and beyond)? Then register for classes at the Midsouth Homestead Education conference being held on Saturday September 26, 2015 in Arlington, TN.
As the Midsouth Homestead Education website explains:
"The conference is an all-day learning event with multiple classes on several different topics by different speakers. The conference is a crash-course in homesteading skills and is designed to provide attendees with a plethora of class options so that everyone leaves with valuable information."
I will be teaching two of the classes offered. One will be on Making Tinctures: Beyond the Folk Method, based on my book. You don't have to know anything about making tinctures to learn in this class.The other class that I will be teaching is on Adding Herbs and Other Natural Ingredients to Soap. This class will be a follow on to Rachel Payne's class on Making Goat Milk Soap.
Some of the other classes being offered are The Predator-Friendly Homestead – Protecting Your Livestock with Minimal Harm to Wildlife, Goat Keeping Basics, Edible Landscapes, Bee Keeping 101, Permaculture, and Wild Crafting Herbs. You can find class descriptions here (including more details about my Making Tinctures and Adding Herbs and Other Natural Ingredients to Soap classes).
The ticket for the all-day conference is $35 for the early bird registration and $45 after August 1. Children eleven and under can attend free with a parent. Register here.
The conference is located on a functioning farm and is in a very rural area. Your GPS or navigation apps may not be able to accurately find the farm, which is down a red gravel road. Conference attendees will be sent detailed directions and a map to the farm upon registration. Nearby hotel and campground are described here.
