Heritage Life Skills in Waynesville, NC ??

Emergency Preparedness, Emergency Food and Emergency Essentials
Here is their link about the seminar:
http://carolinareadiness.com/

Anyone going to the Heritage Life Skills workshops September 28 - 30 in Waynesville, NC?

A friend is teaching the Wild Food and Mushroom walks that weekend. He is same Mushroom Man as taught the classes out here. It was fun learning.

Calendar



Has anyone been to the Heritage shop before? We might take a drive up there one weekend. Cannot afford the weekend seminars fee but the shop might be a good place to visit. Anyone been there? Thanks.

They were giving handouts about it at the Self Reliance Expo this past w/e in Hickory. Had a lot of interesting workshops offered. It isn't cheap to go ($100) per person, but that does include camping fee.

We are getting ready to drive to PA to the Mother Earth News Festival this w/e. We went a couple years ago to the first one and really enjoyed ourselves.

I hope someone here goes to the Heritage Life Skills and reports back on what they learned (pictures are always nice too!)

We cannot afford to go but we have attended the Wild Food workshops since they were held out here! We learned a lot but it would be nice to be able to go to more.

Have a good weekend in PA.

Thanks....we had a great weekend! Enjoyed the main speakers (Joel Salatin and Temple Grandin). Learned a lot of new things and met a lot of nice folks.

With everything you guys do at your place, maybe you could do a workshop there next year and get paid! We stayed at a campground (State) that was about 3 1/2 miles down the road so our lodging/food was reasonable. We ordered the tickets early ($10 for entire w/e) which helped on the cost.

But with gas nearly $4/gal, it definitely wasn't cheap (950 miles round trip for us). Good to be home in NC! and what a gorgeous day here today!

I would love to hear Joel Salatin in person. We are having a Cob Oven building workshop out here on October 6th. We will only get a small portion of the money but it will be a learning experience too. We had two Mushroom workshops and those were good success but, same thing. The boys only received a small amount of the proceeds but it was also a learning experience. They want to have more classes but have to learn "how to" advertise them, handle strangers on the property and etc.

Glad you enjoyed the PA weekend.

We've been to their shop. I loved it! The prices were reasonable and I did not have to pay shipping. They carry large bags of beans, flour, etc as well as lots of freeze dried and dehydrated foods. Their book selection was great. There were lots of water filters, dehydrators, sun ovens and on and on. It was fun to talk with the owner and let her tell us about her book on jar meals.

scooter: find a person near you. We took photos of mushrooms here for years before we learned which ones we can eat. Now, after several classes, I trust us to pick a few types. Still, I would never eat a mushroom I was not sure about. See if you can find someone out near you.

claytonpiano: we talked to her on the phone and she seemed really nice. We cannot get up there this weekend but after our Cob workshop, we hope to make a day trip one day. The jar meals sounds good.

Have a nice weekend everyone. We are stocking up on kindling this weekend! Picking up sticks, breaking them and cramming in two tall trash cans. Fun stuff......
