Resilient Living Workshop

On August 24, 2015

Over the years I’ve met a lot of people with what I like to call a “farm fetish”.  They fantasize about living a simpler life in wide open space, with cute animals, and homegrown food.  There’s a sense that this lifestyle offers nothing but bucolic bliss filled with sunshine, fresh air, and a deep sense of a satisfaction with each passing day.

The reality of having a farm is endless physical work, thoughtful planning, problem solving, and of course, patience.

Despite truly understanding how hard it can be to homestead, I am deeply committed to honoring the earth and all it’s resources.  That is why I am devoted to cultivating resiliency in my life, on my land, and in my home.  

That’s why I co-designed the Resilient Living Workshop, 5 day program (October 12-16) that will give you a taste of what you need to create a more resilient life.  You’ll learn what it takes to build and maintain a vibrant homestead, how to garden, forage, ferment, preserve food, and make herbal medicine.  This workshop is being lead by Asheville’s top teachers, thinkers, gardeners, fermenters, healers, and botanists.

If you are an aspiring urban homesteader, naturalist, activist, health professional, or hungry student, you will gain life-long wisdom in this week-long immersion. In a world focused on sustainability, we ask, why not go one step further –why not cultivate a truly resilient life?
