What Artists Bring to the Table: Elisa RathjeOct 6 | 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Join artist and garden farmer Elisa Rathje for apple-pressing on a century-old cider press using apples harvested from Appleturnover, her 1½ acre 1895 Salt Spring apple orchard turned food forest and micro-silvopasture. For the workshop, bring along a half-pint mason jar to collect fresh apple juice and come chat about the possibilities of home-scale wild fermentation. During the discussion, Rathje will explore ways in which participants can start to transition to simple living and “radical home & local economies” in an era of ecological crisis and energy descent.
Both workshop and discussion are free, but registration is required as attendance is limited.
