I still have spaces in this class, which is designed to help others sort out the complicated intersections of multiple crises.  The class is taught by both me and my husband, Eric Woods.

Sustainable Garden Planning Class

First of all, in my first post I accidently wrote the class was starting tomorrow, April 4.  In fact, we’re starting the following Thursday, April 11 and running to the first Thursday in May (apparently I can’t read a calendar correctly).

Things have been a little nuts here. Two weeks ago Eric and I took an emergency placement of two children, six and 17 mos.  It turned out to be one of the most exhausting and stressful placements we’ve ever had, not because of the kids, who are delightful (although I had somehow forgotten what 17month…

Fall Gardening Class Starting Up!

Just to let you know, I’m starting another class this week – this one helping people get started with fall gardening and season extension. If you are like most folks, you probably start out enthusiastic about your garden, but around the middle of the summer, you get focused on harvesting, or overwhelmed by the heat…

What, you ask, has Sharon been duing, besides getting mud and manure on her? (I feel like there’s been a theme to some of my recent posts, no?) I’m sure you have nothing but this on your mind – the doins a’transpirin at my house being the focus of whole tens of people (well, maybe…

Food Storage Baby Steps

My food storage and preservation class starts today, and I thought it was worth reproducing this essay – the very basics of getting started on storing food. Why would you want to do this? Well, there are a couple of reasons. First of all, I don’t think anyone who has tracked events over the last…
