Grow a Homestead-Style Food Garden


Interested in planting a sustainable food garden for greater self-reliance? Join Susan Colleen Browne, Whatcom County "modern homesteader" and author of the new homesteading memoir Little Farm Homegrown for a fun and practical class focusing on backyard farming essentials for fall. We'll explore crops and native plantings best suited for our area, working with nature for a chemical-free garden, creating your food-raising timeline, and cool-season garden activities, including harvesting and storing your crops. Develop a homesteader mindset, eat from your garden nearly year-round, and discover the joys of simpler living.
