Modern Day Homesteading
The Little Red Homestead
Blanchardville, WI
Share this event:


Spend the afternoon learning about our modern day homestead. We will teach you the basics of planning and designing a permaculture landscape; from soil maps and graph paper to planting roots and raising livestock.  Farm appropriate clothing and close-toed shoes required.

Children of all ages are welcome with one or more paid adult tickets.

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 The Little Red Homestead:

The Little Red Homestead is a five acre property nestled in a rural neighborhood 45 minutes outside of Madison.  In 2014, Bethany Storm and her family traded their suburban Chicago lot for their self-designed modern farmstead. Perennial food crops are found mixed in beds with native plants and flowering heirlooms. A fruit island mimics a natural forest with an herbaceous layer of mints, strawberries and lavender beneath the fruiting shrubs and trees. Their chickens, sheep, goats and pigs serve many purposes. Some are great at pest control, some are good waste processors, many provide a food source, and all are good for the soul and for the soil.

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.
