I ran into a student of a few years back at the health food co-op where I have been working recently. We recognized each other, and she brightened my day by thanking me for the class, the first multi-session class I ever offered. It was offered through Ulster Community College Continuing Education program, at the herb farm collective where I was living and working at the time. It was a 2 hour long evening class, one day a week, for seven weeks.
It was good to see you last Sunday at the Co-Op! I wanted to write and tell you how impressed I was with your Homesteader’s Kitchen class. Your class really challenged me to try things I never thought I could do! I now have an understanding of fermentation and a foundation to build on as I try new projects. It’s still a journey, but one that is worthwhile and connects us to our ancestors.
Thanks again. Marianne Gilday
