Food Storage Class Starting Thursday

So apparently in my sleep-deprived, brain rotted state, I managed to leave out the start date of my food storage and preservation class – it starts on Thursday, August 23rd, ie, this Thursday.  I still do have spaces, and as it is asynchronous and online, you don’t have to be able to drive to my…

Food Preservation and Storage Class

It is hard to believe that summer is coming so rapidly to a close, and that the opportunity to put up for winter will pass so fast.  So if you’d like help and guidance in doing so, I’ll be running my food storage and preservation class starting Thursday, August  and running for six weeks into…

  In honor of Making Home, my new book on Adapting-In-Place which comes out in August, New Society has offered to sponsor a spot in my Adapting-in-Place class that starts tomorrow.  In exchange for a sponsored spot for a low-income participant who couldn’t otherwise afford to take the class, New Society will ask for a weekly…

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…

It seemed up here in the north that spring would never come – and now we’re headed rapidly into that time of year when everything is ripe and abundant in our gardens and at local farms, and learning to put food up can make it possible for you to enjoy summer in winter, and continue…

Adapting In Place Class Coming Up

I still have space in the Adapting in Place Class that starts next week – the last one for some time, I suspect, given other projects (I have to write the book about Adapting in Place, for example ;-)). aron and I will be running our Adapting in Place Class online for six weeks beginning…

Things Forthcoming!

I’m doing a bunch of stuff right now (I’m always doing a bunch of stuff, actually) that I thought I’d mention here. First, on Monday March 21, at 5:30 I’ll be at the first Unitarian Universalist Society in Albany talking to Congressman Paul Tonko about peak oil, climate change and regional preparedness in an event…
