Yellow Barn Closing Fundraiser!   Suggested donation $5-$10.

6:00 pm Potluck:  Bring a dish to pass and your own plate and utensils.

6:30 pm Seedsaving Presentation:  While we are eating, permacuturist, Justin Pawloske will do a brief intro on seedsaving. Learn the simple steps to a successful harvest of your seeds for next years use.  Using simple tools from your home, learn how to harvest, separate, avoid molding, and correctly save your seeds.

7:15 pm: Break into the evening’s skillshare groups—here are the options:

  1. Preparing for Winter with Foraging for Food and Medicine: In this class we will talk about what opportunities there are for fall foraging, what to harvest, and how to preserve your finds for winter use. Learn the basics of what part of the plant to use, how to decide which method to use, and how different methods affect nutrition, medicinal value, and health. Handouts provided, and there will be samples of plants and preservation methods. Taught by Linda Diane Feldt, who is a Holistic Health Practitioner, author, teacher and herbalist.

  2. Beginning Needlepoint:  For both men and women who may want to embroider anything, from practical things like name badges and initials in clothes, to decorative pillow cases and framed art. Taught by Ponda Sallee who has been embroidering for 35 years.

This month the A2 Reskilling will include a vegetable swap—bring your extra tomatoes, cucumbers, beets, etc. and swap for other veggies!

From 9-10pm,  we may have a bit of music, with details to come!

*** Volunteers needed for pre- event set up and post event take down. Also someone is needed to register people at the door and help with the veggie swap!  Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering for this or future events.  a2reskilling@gmail.com
