Oops...One More

I am hanging my head in shame for forgetting to tell you about an event being hosted by one of my favorite farm families, the good folks @ Dee Creek Farm. This will be a unique opportunity to learn about emergency & family preparedness. Here's the scoop on their upcoming class:

Hey folks! It's been so long since we did deliveries (a whopping two
weeks!) - I'm suffering from withdrawal, and so couldn't help but
plan a get-together. It should be a great workshop - I'm totally
excited! We are planning on having another similar class in the
summer, which will include a campout, with hands on experience in
some of these techniques. That class will be more spendy. Btw, I
did update the website with new blog entries this week! ~Summer

"Intro to Emergency & Family Preparedness"
by Summer M.
January 17th, 2008, 2pm
$35 per person

To register for the class, email me your interest,
And confirm with your admission fees (at deliveries or by mail)
Class space is limited

Emergency and Family Preparedness will focus on the skills and
supplies needed for weathering emergencies and disasters. Whether it
is a loss of a job or illness in the family, a natural disaster,
epidemic or a temproary/long-term breakdown of the food/commodity
supply chain, learn what is necessary to keep yourself and others
from panicking while coming up with practical solutions to keep
oneself, family, friends or neighbors alive and healthy.

Topics will include: how to stock your food pantry, packaging/
preserving/storing foods, preparing emergency Bug-Out bags and
equipment, storing/cleaning/treating water, catching and using
rainwater, emergency toilets, seeds for quick sprouting and planting
in 30-40 day growing cycles, putting together an emergency first aid
kit, how to dress burns, how to use an oil lamp, tips for cast iron
and dutch oven cookery, starting a fire and more!

Bring snacks just in case class heads on into evening!
(we're shooting for 4 hours)
Come, and let's learn together!

Summer M. has been a long-time customer of DCF, and a committed
Locavore in our community, with two boys needing maximum nutrition to
keep their health maintained.

I have attended several of Summer's classes, and found the shared
information and instructors input invaluable. I thought I knew
stuff, but learned quickly that I could glean many new concepts, how
and why they worked. Folks that attend are invited to join a Google
group that is full of sharing, too!

I think there is no better time than now, when the economy is
struggling, to learn old-fashioned ways of living!
