Winter is a great time for stocking up. Building resiliency into your home in the case of temporary or periodic shortages in the delivery of goods or services is something folks often think is a good idea, but don't always get around to doing. With the support of a group, you can take this "to do" off your list, meet some other families in your community and eat scones too.
This 2 part workshop will assist you to set up an individualized plan for your household's food staples and then implement it.
Part One (Saturday, Jan 15): Making a Plan & Group Ordering - We'll gather round the dining room table, pull out the food calculators and work out a food storage & rotation plan for each participant's household. Then we'll aggregate the supplies needed and put together a group order of materials and food staples (wheat berries, oat groats, sugar, dried beans, salt, for example). We'll also have a brief tour of our family's food storage system and root cellar.
Part Two (Saturday, Feb 19): Storing Staples - We'll divide the group order we assembled in the first session and pack superpails together. Superpails are ideal for long-term storage of food staples, see sister site PreparedTompkins.org for details.
The cost of supplies and food will be prorated based on what you ordered during the first session.
Please be sure that you can attend BOTH sessions. Thanks!
And...I'll bake the scones!
