Join the How-to Homestead Crew, led by Melinda Stone, for a down-home hootenanny of movies, tastings, song and dance! The evening includes free tastings of home-made beer, booze, fermented vegetables and other homestead goodies; new homesteading movie shorts, some with live accompaniment by the How-to Homestead house band: the sk8 sisters; square dancing with Pearsons Pork Pies; and the night concludes with free-form dancing with the Goat Family, a nuevo-traditional jug band on the old-timey exuberance and infectious tip.
Films include: The Elixir of Life, Making Stock, Calendula Seed Saving (complete with seed give away), What I Learned the Year I Made My Own Linen Underwear, Everyone Needs a Hoe, Sk8 Sisters on the Farm, and at least two films culled from their current call for work.
Sk8 sisters, Mary Elizabeth and Kate Sk8, harmonize to bring a sweet delight to several of the evenings’ films.
