The recent increase in people who want to grow food, raise chickens or bees, and learn DIY skills is keeping Institute of Urban Homesteading founder Ruby Blume busy. Her Brave New World series of workshops and farm talks covers topics from compost tea and backyard chickens to food preservation and folk medicine. All classes on Zoom. Details and registration.
