Small Scale Agriculture Series

We offer a limited number of workshops in simple homesteading skills for those interested in discovering some ways that families met their basic needs in the not too-distant past.. Participants in these workshops will have an opportunity to “get their hands dirty” with processing chickens, milking a cow, or even cutting hay with a grass schythe. Look for additional small-scale agriculture workshops in the near future.

  • Guitar Making Intensive – September 5 – December 19, 2017 (Tuesdays 5:30-9:00pm)


    Drawing from over 30 years of fine instrument making, Martin Macica will share his knowledge of the principles and practice of guitar making, leading participants through the process of making their own guitar using hand tools.   This intensive course will cover every aspect of guitar making, including the important hand-cut dovetail neck joint.   Participants will leave with a working knowledge of guitar making, and a handcrafted instrument ready for a lifetime of making music.
