This Saturday, I will hanging out with Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson and others. More or less. I'm psyched to be a part of the From Scratch Club contingency that will be showing off our DIY antics at FarmAid! The Homegrown Village Skills Tent is hosting all sorts of demos and workshops on topics ranging from my old standby, making butter in a jar, to growing mushrooms, making bacon or cheese and even making friendship bracelets from llama wool. We're partnering with HOMEGROWN.org, FarmAid's little sibling and the raddest online community for diy-ers, farm folk, urban garden enthusiasts, canning and preservation mavens, earth mamas and all of the wonderful people that make the earth spin. I've contributed over there in the past- maybe you recognize the little icon over there in the sidebar? Check them out!
It's going to be wildly DIY, earthy, homegrown, farmer-supportive and fun.
If you have tickets to the sold-out FarmAid, stop by and see us! There's a map here showing where the Homegrown Village will be. If you don't have tickets, we won't be able to high five during the day but you can still watch the whole concert on livestream here!
Also, there will be Chipotle, Ben & Jerry's and veggie poutine for sale at the festival. Like I said, it's going to be fun.
