Class Experience

I have been homesteading for more than two decades: living on a timber farm, raising a garden, wildcrafting from forage, and raising various animals, including: horses, dairy goats, waterfowl, turkeys, chickens, rabbits, dogs, and cats. I also served as a veterinary assistant for seven years in a small animal clinic.
Discussion topics will be largely student-led and related to current seasons, holidays, growing stages, etc. Students are encouraged to prepare something current to share, but no formal homework is assigned, and students may simply come to class ready to chat.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
* Please note that due to the nature of farming and homesteading, topics such as butchery, predation, illness, and loss of animal life may come up in conversation. *
