It's a wrap!

The 2013 Mid-America Homesteading Conference is now history, and according to the evaluation forms, informal conversations, and Facebook comments, it was a success. Speakers and attendees (who came from as far away as Louisiana) enthusiastically shared information with one another. Thanks to the generosity of local Big R and Tractor Supply stores, as well as Baker's Creek Heirloom Seeds, a few lucky attendees also took home some cool prizes.

The DIY track was popular, as everyone learned about canning, soapmaking, making sorghum syrup, and more. We were excited to have a camera that gave every attendee an up-close-and-personal view of exactly what was being demonstrated. Here is a picture from the session on making mozzarella --

Many thanks to our volunteers Karen and Jane, who did everything from registration to making last-minute copies and helping with set-up and break-down.

Plans are already underway for 2014, so if you have suggestions for changes, as well as speakers and topics, be sure to let us know by commenting below!
