7/16/08-So far, about 10 people have joined in workshop on the Sustainability Workshops Series, also now known as the Homesteading Workshops Series. This includes workshops leaders, volunteers who put up signs, and volunteers who helped organize and publicize workshops. More than 60 people have been reached, with almost 30 people at our first workshop alone. These people were affected by learning a new homesteading skill and leaving the workshop will all the knowledge and material to start practicing this skill at home. Each skill helps people become more locally self-sufficient and build a more sustainable and harmonious relationship with the local ecology.
