Oct 26th is FULL and Bonuses for the Nov 23rd class

The class is full with Trade School Indy.

October 26th 2:00 PM

This is a short, but dense class on turning your back yard into a food production machine. Get some ideas and get ready for spring.

If you would like a similar class at your location Contact Us. Or if you want the Be Prepared Series.

There is a full day class, with bonus of making your own soaps, laundry soap and other topics including food preservation. Free samples of tooth paste and soaps. If you want laundry soap sample please bring a sealable 1 cup container for each soap type (currently 3). We will have sample containers for the toothpastes. Register through the link below.

November 23rd class

Prepay and register for the class and get a free entry to win a planting barrel. $340 value if purchased other places (will not name but sale online and in some local markets), $100 value from me. Discounts are available for couples or families. We now can take credit cards online or at the door using Square even though we personally despise them. Cash is much better. If the class fills completely (80 paid or bartered seats) each person in attendance will get a free gift. ($20 retail value worth much more in savings of time and energy)

Not 100% confirmed yet but we may have a local soap and lotion producer present who have goat milk soaps and lotions. Learn about the process, try, and buy products. I have personally been to their operation and was very impressed. More details once everything is confirmed and links to their site.

Update

Global Soaps will be at the class to discuss and sell natural soaps and lotions.

If there are some other local producers (that align with the topics covered) in the area let me know, we may have additional spaces available for booth or tables.

Would you like to turn your backyard into a food production area for you and your family? Want to grow organic fruits and vegetables that are free from pesticides and herbicides?Believe it or not, it’s possible to harvest 550 lbs of fruit and veggies on 640 square feet of land. The secret is Permaculture. On my 0.2 acre property, I have 6 productive trees, 24 productive bushes, 60 medicinal plants, edible landcaping, 24 laying hens and 2 ponds that allow me to harvest fruits, veggies, berries, fish and eggs all from our backyard. Participants are welcome to come to our farm afterwards.
