RECLAIM THE HOLIDAYS!
A panel discussion and cocktails with Process' Self-reliance series authors
moderated by Jodi Wille
Are you ready to leave behind the era of the over-consumptive, trash-producing, stress-filled, money draining holiday season and step into a glorious new possibility? Want to "take back" the holidays and infuse a new kind of magic and meaning into the season? Across the country, people are awakening to the pleasures of living more self-sufficiently, from edible gardening and urban foraging to food preserving and community bartering. In this spirit, join us for an evening designed help you re-envision new traditions for the holiday season that are simple, sustainable, low-cost, and radically satisfying. The evening will include a panel discussion with the Process Media Self-reliance authors Erik Knutzen and Kelly Coyne (The Urban Homestead), Deborah Eden Tull (The Natural Kitchen) and Cletus Nelson (Depression 2.0), all the resources you need to get started, and more.
Sustainable snacks and bicycle-powered margaritas and other libations will be provided.
