This past Thursday evening it was not unusual to see The Sun Times News on our old wooden table in our dining room. However, there was an unusual buzz of excitement hovering over the front page. Like bees over a patch of clover, our children were enthusiastically reading the front page. “Mom, we made the front page!” In the past, we have had plenty of visitors from family, friends, and customers at our farm. We have even experienced a few strangers dropping in with homesteading questions. The evening of July 10th was a bit different at our homestead because we held our first “official” public event: Wild Edible Plant Walk. I purposely limited the class to 20 attendees so that everyone could easily see and hear our guide, Rowena. The class filled up almost immediately. Rowena did a great job! I was delighted to meet like-minded folks, and thrilled to have teens attend the walk. We plan on holding future events from homesteading classes to farm-focused art.
