Urban Homesteader Workshop Series, Summer 2017
Do you find yourself at the farmer’s market, ogling gorgeous, locally grown food yet coming home with only a loaf of bread? Would you like to join a CSA but fear much of the share will go unused? If so, this workshop series is for you! Learn how to prepare the beautiful fresh produce, meats and fish we are so fortunate to have available here in Seacoast NH and ME.
Workshops will be taught at Acorn Kitchen in Kittery ME, the perfect venue for intimate, hands on seminars with local culinary gurus. Fear cabbage no longer! This series provides all the skills you need to take advantage of the summer season and beyond. Sign up today!
Each workshop is all-inclusive, providing the materials needed to take your homesteading skills to the next level.
