In our time, homesteading can be broadly defined as a lifestyle of self-sufficiency – independent from consumerism, over-priced tasteless food, and unhealthy choices. Even if self-reliance is not your chief concern, the benefits of home-grown, home-prepared products abound. Come and join us this fall as we begin to explore the possibilities with a series of classes we call Harbor Homestead! Gain some practical home skills rediscovered for the 21st century, be empowered to live more healthy and independently, and have FUN!
