y dear readers,
If you will be in or around Boston area on Saturday, October 9th, please stop by the Union Square Farmers’ Market in Somerville. The Urban Homesteaders’ League is hosting a Market Stand, an experiential learning space where visitors can learn skills for sustainable urban living and creative domesticating.
I will lead a 15-minute tutorial (or skillshare) about recycling yarn from old sweaters . There will also be speakers who will share other homesteading and creative DIY skills. You can also bring something that you’ve made or grown to trade at a Swap Table. Local graphic designers have designed an informational broadsheet with all the information covered in each of the skillshares and each visitor will be able to take a broadsheet with them. Please come by to chat, learn something new and meet other people interested in DIY and urban homesteading. (Plus, I hear that there will be cookies for skillshare attendees).
Here are the details:
