Join us for a weekend of practical skills for both the homesteader with off-grid goals and the city-sustainable alike.  We will be delving into fun, practical hands-on projects to help you be more self-sufficient in everyday life. Learn about canning, small animal systems, creating new things from old, useful wild plants, fermented foods and more in this packed weekend introduction to basic homesteading projects and skills.

The class takes place at the Alderleaf Campus in Monroe, WA. Our beautiful 15 acre property is nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains 35 miles east of Seattle. It is an evolving model of environmental sustainability and features our classrooms, office, residences, ponds, a large creek, forested land, pastures, many gardens, chickens, sheep, and food forests.

  • Make apple sauce from scratch and use the scraps to start your own apple cider vinegar

  • Nourish your body with home-made fermented foods like kimchee
  • Learn about basic animal husbandry for ideal homestead animals like chickens, rabbits and goats
