This class will include a printed guide to raising broiler chickens so that you can refer back to it whenever you need to.
Propagating your own trees, bushes and plants from cuttings You'll learn about 4 different methods of propagating plants and trees. I'll be using fig trees, elderberry bushes, and roses are examples but these methods will carry over to many different types of plants.
Homesteading 101 Date/Time TBD Do you want to start raising your own food but you're just not sure how to get started? This is a great place to learn the basics and get your questions answered. We'll discuss the animals that best suit different types and sizes of land as well as the options that are easiest and those that are hardest. You'll learn about regenerative practices, rotational grazing, feeding animals properly, and getting the most out of your land. It won't be all about meat production! You'll learn about getting started with a garden. We'll talk about different types of gardens such as raised beds, row gardening, and even the "Back to Eden" method! You'll learn about when you can plant what and what does best in our area. We'll even touch on preservation methods so that the food that you work so hard to produce can last you throughout the year!
