Happy winter everyone! There has been a lot of great stuff happening here at the Dead End Alley Farm, so much in fact there has been very little time for contemplation or writing. For the last two weeks my time has been occupied with a home remodeling project, knocking out a wall to make a bedroom bigger. While I am not quite done, the end is in sight and it will be back to planning for an exciting spring and summer!
This autumn I contacted a couple of local community education programs with a few proposals for teaching classes. To my surprise, both groups got back to me relatively quickly with a positive reception. So this spring I will be teaching a few fruit tree grafting classes, and then this summer I will be doing an Intro to Urban Homesteading class, but more on that one later.
Coming up on Tuesday, April 28, I will be teaching a 2 hour long grafting class at the local high school from 6:30-8:30 PM. Here is the link you will need to register and pay. All participants will go home with 3 grafted trees (I will have extra supplies for sale) and the basic knowledge to continue on with this age old, homesteading skill.
So if you are in the Twin Cities (Minnesota) and want to learn how to graft fruit trees, come join me for a fun evening of hands on learning. Please feel free to contact me either through email or on Facebook if you have any questions or comments. Also, if you are interested in hosting a grafting class please let me know and I can supply you with more details. Until next time, Peace and Cheers!
