Meet your host:

John Sheffy co-operates Liberation Farmers LLC, a permaculture enterprise based in Almond, Wisconsin.  The Liberation Farmer Front is the permaculture homestead and commercial farm that is focused on perennial crops and heritage animals.  John has worked in several African countries over the past 15 years on agroforestry projects including school and urban food forests, shade-grown coffee and cacao farms, and large-scale dryland silvo-pasture.  He believes everyone should plant a food forest in their neighborhood.

The fee for this workshop is $30 for Farmshed Members and $35 for Non-members. Registration is required to attend this event. Register today by clicking here.

Participants can attend the On Farm Raising Goats and On Farm Raising Rabbits for Meat Workshops. Both workshops are being hosted on Sunday October 2nd. There is an hour break between workshops from 12 pm to 1 pm for lunch. Please bring a pack lunch and drinks. Snacks will be provided by Liberation Farmers.
