This year we are offering a two week mini-internship during our larger two month program. Despite the melting polar ice caps, not everyone can afford to take a couple months out of their lives to experience sustainable living. A two week commitment makes it more approachable to answer the call of the the earth. Many of you feel it- the desire to unhook from the cell phone, to track the sun through the sky and the shade over the land, to get your hands dirty and make something with your time and energy.
This year we realize how much we need the internship for us. We need a hand to help pull us out of winter hibernation. Yes, the gardens are already producing salad, asparagus and other greens. The sun chokes are vibrantly bursting through their blanket of straw. And, lest we forget, we have already accomplished a lot in our watershed restoration project.
But as our internship time approaches, we realize how important and special this time is for us. It's rewarding to share the joys of our way of life. We have witnessed some amazing transformations and revelations of the leaders we foster. For two months, we get to know some wonderful people also dedicated to sustainable living.
There is still room in our Solar Cooking and Sustainable Kitchens Class!
May 25th, 10 to 4pm
Spend the day playing and feasting in Ampersand’s solar and sustainable kitchen. We will cook together in our favorite solar cookers and explore other self sufficient cooking and preservation methods.
Amanda will share about the range of solar cookers available, cooking techniques, appropriate cookware, canning in the solar oven, and safe temperature ranges. At the end of the day we will taste our solar creations.
Also learn about rocket stoves, solar dehydration, alternative refrigeration methods, and vegetable fermentation. We will discuss how to integrate one or more of these sustainable kitchen ideas easily into your current life style.
