Bluffwood Landing

Share this event:


Approaching 50? Stuck in boring job?  Whats next? Same old, same old? Does your bucket list include: Move to the country, grow veggies, milk goats, sell handcrafted thingamabobs? LindaDee has done all that. After a successful business career (Sunporch Cafe & Art Gallery, Madison), she segued to a 90-acre farm, then a 5-acre B & B, then 150-acre Meat/Wool CSA farm. Her last move was for downsizing to 15 acres where she builds fences, tends organic gardens and raises rare sheep. Learn pitfalls, what to expect, and a realistic view which may puncture your balloon or encourage you to move to the country.  

Adults only.


A free copy of Renewing the Countryside: WISCONSIN will be given away to every family, couple and/or household registered for a particular workshop (a $26.95 value); the free book giveaway is limited to one copy per residential address of attendees.

About LindaDee at Bluffwood Landing:

LindaDee has worn many hats in 70+ years: UW grad, Peace Corps, Broom Street Theater, Lindas Lakeside Market, Sunporch Cafe & Art Gallery, Dane Co. Business Woman of the Year, Treaty Rights, Witness for Non-violence, B&B innkeeper, teacher, master gardener, town treasurer, political activist and now farmer for 25 years. She brings all that to her classes at Bluffwood, a 15-acre organic sheep/wool farm. When not tending sheep, spinning wool, or teaching, LindaDee bounces around her riotous gardens belting out original songs. Sheep mow lawn, soil flourishes, diversity reigns, hobbits lurk & miracles happen. One of those miracles will be YOU participating in a Workshop. 

CANCELLATION POLICY: NO REFUNDS.  SOIL SISTERS has a no refund policy. You can, however, transfer your ticket to another person, provided that person is in possession of the ticket at the time of the workshop.
