Join Anthony Heard and Sunny Lindley for a demonstration of how to trouble shoot, use and maintain your yard equipment. We will gather at Sundial Urban Homestead and dig into the garden shed to get machines working for the season. You may bring your own yard equipment to work on as well! Anthony Heard is a landscape maintenance professional with many years experience maintaining and using all manner of yard equipment.

Perennial Propagation

Make many plants out of one!

Plant clone your favorite plants or learn to graft trees from friends or orchards. It’s quite easy once your learn. Anyone can do it. Become literate with propagation. Mika Conway is a resident of Seven Seeds Farm where he has built and maintained a nursery and been practicing permaculture for more than 3 years. Mika was trained in perennial propagation by Marc Robbi of Rolling River Nursery, Americas first certified organic mail order edible plant nursery.

The first class explores various methods to make art or prepare your existing art for screen printing. In class two, we will learn how to create silk screens using the photo emulsion process. Class three will introduce you to the art of printing for success. The following three classes will be open studio style offering you the time you need with instruction to complete your own project/s.

Since 2012 she has created and sold over 1700 screen printed items through her business Sundial Arts Eco-Apparel and currently enjoys a sewing and screen printing studio at the Ashland Art Center where she creates practical comfortable artisan clothing that reflects ecological and social values worth wearing on your sleeve.

Sunny is an amazing teacher with so much knowledge and skill. Her classes are so inspiring and energizing. What an amazing opportunity to have this awesome artist teach locally. Ten stars!!”

    How long do we have to register and pay for a class? I work at the post office and generally get off right around 10am, so if I could make it last minute, I would!
    Thank you.

      Hi Gracie,
      I’m sorry that I did not see this comment at the beginning of March. We ask folks to pre-register a week in advance. At this time we haven’t had enough enrollment to proceed with most of our classes. We are offering private consultations for $20 on any of the subjects we have been offering. In a private consultation you can tour our urban homestead and ask all the questions you have about the subject you are interested in, get help with design, participate in an activity, or enjoy a personal demonstration. You also have access to our urban homesteading lending library. If you are interested in a private consultation or want to register for a class, please email: thehomesteadschool@gmail.com
