Sustainable Living

A Primer for Sustainable Living

Sustainable living is more than a passing trend, but many practitioners (or those who want to be) often lack practical information on how to successfully live off the land, especially when it comes to raising farm animals. Lifelong farmer, homesteader and Owen County native, Bill Pursell, guides participants through important considerations associated with urban farming. Classes will cover the following; site and animal selection, land /water management, and gardening. Bill pulls the class together by also examining the business of urban farming, including budget and tax considerations, trading, marketing, and auctioning, as well as other topics of that will be of particular interest to future farmers.
