|My fav seed catalog so far...Baker Creek Seeds!|
So the catalogs are starting to arrive and it's a good thing, because it's so stinking cold that your breath freezes before it ever leaves your lungs. Nope, not going outside right now.
Events Calendar here at Cranky Puppy with all kinds of online and local Kansas\Missouri workshops, seminars and online classes. Lots of them are free or only a nominal cost and they cover all kinds of topics:
- Urban gardening\farming
- Managing a small orchard
- Fruit tree or small fruit production (blackberries, strawberries, etc.)
- Keeping chickens
- Permaculture and composting
- Organic pest management (insects, weeds, etc.)
- Pond management
- ...and more!
Some of these events require advance registration, so I recommend you browse through the extensive calendar now, see if there's anything you're interested in and get registered quickly. Some of these are known to fill up pretty quickly - especially the Conservation Extension classes.
This is everything that I could find, but there is more to come because I'm still waiting on several of my sources to post their workshop schedules for 2014. As I get more details, I'll be sure to post the additions here and let you know.
It's a great time to commit to learning a new skill or exploring a new topic. What are you waiting for?
