I am *still* without full access to my email, although new stuff is at least being forwarded to Eric’s account. I apologize profusely for the difficulties, but I know that some people who tried to register either got bounces or got through, but are buried in my gmail account without my having access, so I…

AIP Syllabus and a Quick Request

Just a reminder, my last Adapting-In-Place class for the forseeable future begins on Tuesday – here’s the syllabus if you are interested in joining us. Week 1 – How to evaluate what you have.

I’ve had a lot of people ask when I was going to run food preservation and storage again, and ta da! I am. I’m doing it as a six week course, run asynchronously online on from April 15 to the end of May. I’ll put material up on Thursdays, but you can participate at your…
