Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you haven’t planned anything yet you may be in luck. Cambria Suites in Plainfield if giving discounted room rates if you are attending any of the Homestead and Preparedness classes. I stayed there during the MSE Conference in January. The rooms are very nice, large, andway nicer than places I have stayed in the past. Each room is stocked Wolfgang Puck Coffee and teas, Bath and Body toiletries, have coffee maker, Wi-Fi, and a mini refrigerator. Indoor pool and hot tub is a nice bonus as is the larger gymfacilities. They also offer free transportation to the airport. While there is still snow on the ground and still more to come. It could be a nice getaway. The conference is the weekend AFTER Valentine’s Day, February 22nd but surprise them this weekend. Have dinner and drinks in the hotel and bar or walk over to The Black Swan.

There is a wide variety of classes to take, something that would fit just about anyone. Start planning for your growing season, or come get firearm training, or training about refusing to be a victim. More and more there is news about the crime rate here in Indy. Learn how to help prevent being one of those statistics.

Indiana Homesteading and Preparedness Conference Feb 22, 2014

I recently scheduled a series of classes here in Indy. We are calling this the Indiana Homesteading and Preparedness Conference. This will be the first we hope of many in the future. We have a lineup of other great presenters in the future. Things like cheese making, soap making, goats, rabbits, back yard chickens, upcycling materials, improvised weapons, baton training, NRA training, and so much more. Want more leave a comment on what you want to see.

Here is the schedule for the Permaculture and related classes. Two of them are the same I gave during the MSE conference; one is what will be given at the NEXT MSE conference in March (estimated), held in Kentucky. We will be bringing it back here to Indiana this fall

All are pre-pay registration. This is to ensure we have seats, and the seats are filled. Too often people RSVP then don’t show.

Attending any of the classes? Hang out at Black Swan after the conference, socialize and build some community.   Everything is held on Feb 22 out in Plainfield Indiana at the Cambria Suites.
