Intro to Modern Homesteading

GREENNCR 1012, Course Code: 4361

You don't have to move to the middle of nowhere to be a modern homesteader. As we tour Antiquity Oaks, a modern homestead that was started in 2002, we will explore possibilities for becoming more self-reliant. We will discuss the basics of growing your own fruits and vegetables, as well as caring for backyard poultry and the requirements for a personal home dairy. Our instructor, Deborah, is the author of "Homegrown and Homemade: A Practical Guide to More Self-Reliant Living," which is available to purchase in class.

Course Fee:

If you have trouble finding the location, contact farm owner, Deborah, at 815-358-2450.
