Homesteading classes

The Art of Fermentation

Saturday, September 29th 10 – 12. In Durango, Colorado. Location announced upon sign up.

Learn the history and science of fermentation with Rachel Turiel. Participants will learn what is necessary to make many different ferments, including fruit and vegetable, dairy, vinegars and beverages. Participants will sample many different ferments and take home a pint of kimchi, made in class with local/organic ingredients, and a starter to make a gallon of fermented ginger ale. Participants are responsible for bringing 2 pint jars with lids, the rest of the ingredients will be supplied. Space is limited to 10. UPDATE: One spot left

Edible Weeds and Fall Gardening

Sunday, October 6th 10am – 11am.

Common garden weeds are packed with nutrients, adapted to native soil conditions and natural rainfall. Come to my home garden and learn to identify common, edible weeds, the best time to pick them, which parts are edible and how to prepare them. Come home with handouts and recipes, and sample a fresh salad of mixed greens (AKA weeds). Limited to 10 people.

Also, learn how to extend the fall season to make your hardy greens last through first frosts, and how doing a little work now in the garden can translate into fresh greens next March.

Cost: $10

    Hello Rachel,
    I met you at one of Chris Ricci’s Mushroom Foray’s at DNF. I was wondering if you would be interested in teaching classes at the Co-op?
