    Keep me posted so I can add it to my news column each week..both the Goldendale Sentinel and the Bingen/White Salmon Enterprize. We’ll get the word out there so we have a nice turnout.

    This is Cindy Brown from the OSU Sherman County Extension Office, I will help spread the word especially to locals and 4H families. For folks wanting to learn even more, on homesteading and self-reliance, there is a Sustainable Preparedness Expo the next day in Spokane. FYI many Oregonians will be attempting to harvest locally-grown venison that weekend to fill their homestead freezers, it’s opening day of deer season.

    I won’t be able to make it this year, but hopefully there will be some Grange presence there. Don’t forget Granges are (and were) the clubhouse and support headquarters for small family farmers. Save your local Grange! Rockford Community Grange in Hood River will be holding the 2nd Green Granger Summit featuring Carol Deppe, author of the Resilient Gardener; plus the Lexicon of Sustainability exhibit on Oct 20th & 21st. if you’re into homesteading, love the Earth, are a localvore and like the idea of having your own “clubhouse” and a paid lobbyist (think Farm Bill) to boot, then Grange is for you.

      Hi, Brad. So sorry you can’t make the homesteading fair this year. Homesteading is kind of a DYI attitude a way of living sustainably and being self-sufficient. I’ll bet others have definitions that they could add as homesteading is such a broad topic that there’s not one place to look or just a little information. Start with one skill you’d like to learn and jump in. There are library books, all kinds of blogs, and you’ll find lots of folks who are willing to share information with you just by doing a Google search. Good luck in you adventures.
