See Jane Grow: How Women Are Transforming Food

Lisa Kivirist - New Society Publishers
Workshop Level: Beginner
Blending inspiration with practical how-to's, Rural Renaissance, a Mother Earth News Book for Wiser Living, captures the American dream of country living for contemporary times. Journey with the authors and experience their lessons, laughter and love for the land as they trade the urban concrete maze for a five-acre organic farm and bed and breakfast in southwestern Wisconsin. Rural living today is a lot more than farming. It's about a creative, nature-based and more self-sufficient lifestyle that combines a love of squash, solar energy, skinny dipping and serendipity.

Workshop Description

Women are launching farms and food-based enterprises in record numbers. From farmers to innkeepers, from writers to jam-making entrepreneurs, come hear the inspiring stories and experiences of women homesteaders crafting careers that prioritize healthy food, family and local community ... and build your own idea bank.
