Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is offering a course for folks who want to reconnect with the land, grow food for their own use and create a sustainable landscape. Homegrown Lifestyle will be offered by ISU Extension - Story County in partnership with Boone County Extension on Thursday evenings from 6:00-9:00 p.m. beginning March 14 and ending May 30. Homegrown Lifestyle is a 12-week spring short course for people living on a large lot or small acreage who are interested in producing food for their own use in a way that sustains their natural environment. Each weekly session has a webinar, taught by extension educators with expertise in the topics, to bring the science of getting started to the class; plus, each class offers locally organized activities for a hands-on experience. In addition to weekly Thursday sessions, three half-day local tours or workshops give course participants the opportunity to experience smallâ€“scale food production and resource conservations practices first hand. Online registration at www.homegrownlifestyle.org. Registrations must be completed by March 7.
Registration fee is $149.00 if registered by February 21!!
