Homesteaders’ Swap and Social Meet


Bluebird Hill Homestead

Noon til 5:00 pm


Calling all homesteaders!


Come on out for our quarterly swap and social gathering. Bring any homemade goods, tools, animals, skills or knowledge to swap and share with like-minded folks. 


We’ll likely do a property walk and probably a bit of wild edible foraging and ID if there’s interest. 


Feel free to share this announcement with anyone who you think could benefit. 


We’ll have snacks and drinks available. 


Suggested $10 donation to your hosts or a barter item!


Address and directions: 


9528 Middlebrook Pike

Knoxville, TN 37931


If you’re traveling west on Middlebrook Pike, you’ll need to pull a U-turn at Countryside Center Way.


Go up the long driveway. At the red gate, press any key on the keypad for the gate to open.


Take an immediate LEFT up the gravel drive. As you round the bend to the right, you’ll see our workshop and the parking area. 


Please RSVP to Kerry: so we can keep a head count



Wild Edible Walk

Lenoir City, TN

Saturday, May 20th

10:00 am to 2:00 pm


Join me and one of my design clients Belinda for a guided wild medicinal and edible plant identification walk on her property in Lenoir City, TN. 


We’ll walk through her mostly wooded property to see what we can find, focusing on commonly available and useful plants, trees and shrubs. 


In addition, we can show a food forest project in progress and we will have time for discussion and questions. 


$20/student paid upon arrival and I’ll have a handout prepared that addresses what we’ll be identifying. 


Brings snacks and plenty of hydration. Address and directions will be sent to those who RSVP.

All students should email me: to reserve your spot. Spots are limited!
