NORTHERN  SUSTAINABILITY  SYMPOSIUM:

FOODS: GROWN & GATHERED
May 1-4, 2014

Where does your food come from? With a little skill, the answer can be your own yard! Courses in gardening, bee keeping, alternative heating, apple grafting, basketry and fermentation are just a few of the weekend options as we explore how food, sustainable living and health are linked. Strawbale gardening pioneer Joel Karsten will lead a workshop and give a presentation on this simple form of producing abundant food just about anywhere. We’ll be joined by bee researcher Mike Goblirsch, herbalist Gigi Stafne, chef Lucia Watson, wildfoods instructor Eric Edgin and many more. Coursework, tours, speakers, and opportunities for conversation will round out a weekend designed to inspire, engage and educate.
