Michelle and I kicked off the new year at full speed. We basically haven’t stopped yet… The excitement for our book, Small-Scale Homesteading, has been electric and we are deeply grateful for all of the opportunities we’ve had.
First, in February we were invited to the Minneapolis Home and Remodeling Show at US Bank Stadium to speak on the main stage Friday and Saturday about Food Preservation. We taught the audience about the most common methods that people can easily and safely do from the comfort of their homes. I also demoed sauerkraut making to show everyone how just how simple it is.
In March we were invited to the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show at the Convention Center to speak on MN Hort’s Green Thumb Stage. Michelle and I taught the audience about Companion Planting and followed up the presentation with a book signing at the MN Hort booth.
In March, we had a incredible book launch party at Bad Weather Brewing a couple days prior to the release – we were overwhelmed by the turn out and support.
While I was in Hawaii in March, Michelle braved it and went on Minnesota Live to talk about our book with Elizabeth Ries! Well done, Michelle!
Over the past 4-5 months, we’ve been guests on numerous podcasts including:
The Good Dirt Lady Farmer Podcast (not yet published)
Plus, we had a book signing event at Lake Country Bookstore in White Bear Lake, a Winter Sowing class and signing at Patagonia St. Paul, and a class and signing at Heidi’s GrowHaus. Phew! I feel like I’m still missing a thing or two.
What a wild ride it’s been. Stay tuned for more events coming soon!
