Urban Homesteading

If you want to learn how to live well without needing a lot of money, we want to help you! We can teach you how to get food from the ground to the table (or from a local farm to the table), how to preserve fresh foods to eat during the winter, how to make cheese and soap, even how to raise poultry for eggs and/or meat.

Pepper Jam: Ages 18+. Make a sweet-spicy condiment from local Thistledown Farms' no-spray bell peppers and jalapenos. This is similar to Thai sweet pepper sauce, but you get to control the heat! Delicious on meatloaf, burgers, as part of a barbecue glaze, or in a vegetable sauté.

Bob Keefer Center
Thursday, 9/24, 6–8 p.m. 
$20 ID/$24 OD. Register here


What are you doing to keep participants safe?
We are enforcing six-foot physical distancing during class and have specified an entry to and from class that will minimize exposure to other Bob Keefer Center visitors.

Do I have to wear a mask?

For all indoor classes, patrons will be required to wear a mask. This is in alignment with state requirements for masks in all public indoor businesses, effective July 1.

Will the instructor wear a mask?
Instructors are required to wear a mask indoors. Instructors are also required to adhere to six-foot physical distancing.

What does ID/OD mean?
 People who live or own property within Willamalane Park and Recreation District’s boundaries support Willamalane with their tax dollars, and so they enjoy lower program costs. If you live in-district, you'll pay the ID cost; if you live out-of-district, you'll pay the OD cost. Not sure if you're in-district? Check the district map here.
