Back to nature
It so happened I stumbled across a posting on craigslist for the 22nd annual 'Hoes Down Harvest Festival' celebrating rural living in the Capay Valley. If you're interested in learning some farming skills it looks like this is a great opportunity! On Saturday there are workshops I'm pretty intersted in, mostly the canning and urban agriculture ones. There's also a farmers market, and contra dancing, and the proceeds go to good causes. And on Sunday there is a home brewing class taught by our very own friend Blair Howard, who as a wedding gift made a ton of delicious beer for our wedding! He really know's what he's doing, and I'm hoping to maybe take his class... The festival is October 3rd and 4th, and you can even camp overnight if you want.
