A few months ago, I wrote an email to my dear friend Tatiana, of Mama Philosopher, with the subject line, “A very crazy, and possibly very good idea!”
That idea was to combine our expertise – Tatiana wrote her PhD dissertation on the local food movement, and I’m passionate and knowledgeable about homesteading, gardening, and food preservation – into one totally awesome eCourse that dives into the local food movement.
The result is Empowered Eating, a four week course in which participants explore local food issues, participate in a two-week local food challenge, and learn about growing food, sourcing local food, and preserving seasonal abundance, all in a supportive online community.
Living in the local food hotbed of the Willamette Valley of Oregon for over a decade, I became passionate about growing my own food and sourcing it from local farmers with whom I could develop a relationship. I’ve learned so much about adapting my diet to seasonal abundance, nurturing a bountiful garden, buying in bulk from farms, and preserving for the winter months. Empowered Eating is the best of what I’ve learned from hands-on experience, rolled into one inspirational and educational course.
I’m honored to co-teach with Tatiana Abatemarco. Since meeting a few years ago during an online course, Tatiana and I have connected deeply. While we’ve never actually met in person, we share so many similar interests – peaceful parenting, personal growth, Waldorf education, wellness, and local food. Tatiana brings amazing knowledge and a beautiful, thoughtful teaching presence to this course.
Empowered Eating will take place from August 25-September 19. During these four weeks, we will:
- Explore local food ethics and discover our “why”
- Create local food sourcing strategies and meal plans for our families
- Join together in a supportive community as we undertake a two-week Local Food Challenge
- Learn the basics of growing, preserving, and storing food via photo tutorials and videos
- Create seasonal meal plans
- Explore topics such as bioregionalism, lacto-fermentation, wild foraging,
- and SO much more!
Whether you’re just beginning a local food journey, or wanting support to go deeper, this course will be a mixture of learning, community and fun.
I would be so honored if you would join Tatiana and me for this eCourse. This week, from July 28 until August 4, Homestead Honey readers will receive 50% off the course tuition when you use the discount code Homestead50.
