What Does it Mean to be Local + Sustainable? A Fibershed Lecture

Join Jeanette Carter of Mountains & Plains Fibershed along with Katie Miller from Heritage Belle Farms for a lecture with a class to follow. This will be an interactive session discussing the ideas of Fibershed, the notion of ‘Local’ and what sustainable farming can look like. The idea of Fibershed will be discussed with reference to others both within the US and elsewhere. Katie Miller will share her farming practices, and we will present the hemp/merino project in which we are engaged. 

Lecture Fee: $10.00

Join us after the lecture for a two hour workshop on how to prepare and clean Churro fleece for hand-spinning!
