The Homestead ATL

Well folks, we’ve completed our first quarter of classes at The Homestead Atlanta and had a heck of a good time in the process. Thank you so much to everyone – the unbelievably knowledgeable instructors, curious learners, wonderful advocates – that helped turn a crazy idea into a mushroom log, a carboy of wine, an herbal apothecary, and all sorts of other fuzzy, fizzing, fermenting, funky and fun creations that are part and parcel of homesteading.

A community is really starting to form around this sort of education, and we hope that The Homestead will grow right along side it. It’s so interesting to discover what people want to learn and what best facilitates that process. So far, it’s pretty clear that hands-on, experiential learning with instructors who are deeply passionate and engaged is a surefire recipe for success.

We can’t wait to start developing educational “tracks” so that – whether you find yourself drawn to metalwork or fermentation – you can continue to learn more and grow your skillset, incorporating related skills. Really drawn to making herbal salves & syrups? Maybe the next step is learning to keep bees to produce your own wax and honey. Or maybe it’s a class in permaculture so you can create a multi-layered herb forest on your property. That’s one of the most fun parts of self-reliance education: discovering the elegant, closed-loop systems you can create and sustain. You get the idea. Endless possibilities, limitless creativity…all in a day’s homesteading.

We’re working hard with our instructors to bring you a fresh set of interesting and exciting classes for summer and should have a full curriculum for you in a few weeks. But just in case you can’t…wait…any….longer…we’ve got a fun surprise for you:

Summer Kickoff Weekend! (Get excited!) We’ll be opening enrollment for two classes on June 8th and 9th later today or tomorrow so that you can get your permaculture and herbal first aid learning on while we get the rest of the curriculum together. Sound like a plan?

Thank you again for helping make The Homestead a part of the Atlanta sustainability community; and it’s only going to get more awesome from here!
