Event description
Learn the rhythm of homesteading at Black Barn Farm in real time across the seasons from September till April

About this Event

With a growing desire to galvanise our resilience skills, connect more deeply to ourselves and our ' place' and to seek more 'simple', Black Barn Farm have created a 4 day course in homesteading to empower our communities to know how to grow food, find simpler solutions, secure food sovereignty, be more confident with herbal medicine, preserve our harvest, plan our seasonal activities and most importantly be practical about it all without getting overwhelmed.

We will cover topics and get hands on with: Chicken care, seedling raising, seasonal planning, harvest and storage insights, watering systems, food preserving, basic herbal home medicine, chicken culling, seed saving, wicking beds, solar ovens, compost tea making, potting shed set up, worm farms, grafting.

To ensure our days together are in real time we're spreading the days across three seasons. The four course dates are:

Saturday 26th September

Saturday 7th November

Saturday 20th February

Saturday 27th March

The days will run from 9am till 4pm and include morning and afternoon tea (provided) with a potluck lunch* each day.

The course is being offered to just 15 people at a time to ensure everyone will have the opportunity to get hands on. We will offer a second stream of the program if demand is there.

In addition to course handouts you will also be offered a range of take home gifts to help you on your way with each days lessons.

* POT LUCK LUNCH - These are the most exciting way to feast as the range of food on the table is vast and varied. Everyone contributes something - ideally fresh from your own garden or kitchen. Of course it's ok to bring something store bought too.
