Generally our homes require massive infusions of cash to maintain, energize, feed, and hydrate.  What if instead of being familial economic drains our homes became economic engines?  What if our homes produced more than they cost?  This workshop will have broad appeal for audiences wishing to become more self-reliant in their domestic living.  Whether it be Solariums, kitchen chickens, roof-top honey bees, grey water systems, or an operation with multiple small farm animals; we can do a lot to wean ourselves from corporate and municipal dependency.

The schedule for the workshop is as follows:

  • 11am – Local Food Challenge Potluck
  • 12pm – Workshop begins with Joel
  • 1pm – Q and A/Audience participation
  • 2pm – Calypso Farm Tour

We are challenging attendees to bring a dish from locally sourced ingredients to be shared at the potluck lunch beginning at 11am. Please sign up to bring a dish here.

*The ground may be very squishy this time of year. Please wear rubber boots or other appropriate footwear and please park on the highway.


Juneau

Wednesday May 3rd, 2017
Juneau Arts and Culture Center
11am – 3pm

TOPIC: Food Policy
$75 ($50 w/ student ID)

From zoning to labor to food safety to insurance, local food systems face a phalanx of regulatory hurdles designed and implemented to police industrial food models but which prejudicially wipe out the antidote: appropriate scaled local food systems. A call for guerrilla marketing, food choice freedom legislation, and empirical pathogen thresholds offers solutions to these bureaucratic hurdles. In this extremely creative and practical policy brainstorm, Salatin offers can-do options for locals who want to transition to a more earth-friendly, diversified, decentralized, community-empowered culture by answering the question, “What can I do?”

The schedule for the workshop is as follows:

  • 11am – Light lunch provided by (local food sponsor TBA)
  • 12pm – Workshop begins with Joel
  • 1:30pm – Panel with Joel and local food industry leaders, with audience discussion
  • 3pm – Workshop close

Anchorage

TOPIC: Building a Local Food Web
$75 ($50 w/ student ID)

Biosecurity, food borne pathogens, energy, integrity, humane husbandry: local food can correct it all. But to really be a credible percentage of the global food system, it must develop six integrated components: production, processing, marketing, accounting, distribution, and patrons. Building a local food system that works requires aromatic and aesthetic production models that re-embed the butcher, baker, and candlestick maker into the community. Economies of scale in collaborative foodshed distribution compete with corporate volume. And patrons must rediscover their kitchens, eating seasonally and relearning domestic culinary arts.

We are challenging attendees to bring a dish from locally sourced ingredients to be shared at a potluck dinner beginning at 4:30pm. Please sign up to bring a dish here.

  • 4:30pm – Local Food Challenge Potluck
  • 5:30pm – Workshop begins with Joel
  • 7pm – Panel with Joel and local food industry leaders, with audience discussion
  • 8:30pm – Workshop close
