Summer and Fall Events

Summer and Fall Events

Summer and Fall is shaping up to be a busy one – I’ll be at several events, so I hope you have an opportunity to come out and say hello!


Our quarterly homestead gathering here in Knoxville will be on Sunday, September 10th from Noon until 5:00. 

Bring items to swap if you’d like, otherwise come out to enjoy fellowship, refreshments, garden, food forest and foraging walks and take the opportunity to ask all the questions! 

Email me for address and directions:


Back to the Land Festival is September 22-24 near Centerville, TN

I’ll be tabling as well as joining the homestead panel. BACK TO THE LAND FESTIVAL – Home


I’ll be at the Self Reliance Festival in Camden, TN October 14th and 15th – John Willis of Special Operations Equipment has asked that I lead a foraging and plant ID walk on his land. I’ll be prepared to show various useful species, how to harvest, use and document them.
I’m planning to take the stage at SRF as well. What am I talking about? Most likely how I left behind wage work and built my own business around my lifestyle and interests.
