Hudson Mohawk Reskilling Festival

hudson mohawk reskilling festival 2011The Sanctuary for Independent Media has an event this Saturday that could be interesting/fun if you're eco-conscious -- or just like getting your hands dirty: the Hudson Mohawk Reskilling Festival.

From the blurbage: "A day of skillsharing and planning as we build a local network of shared values and knowledge around urban gardens, food networking, food preservation, passive and alternative energies, water catchment, and social justice."

There are tours at sites around Troy during the morning (among them, urban chickens). The afternoon includes panel discussions and how-to sessions. Admission is $15.

Bok! On Sunday, the Uptown Initiative in Troy is holding a city chickens workshop. (You can legally keep hens in Troy.) [Troy Record]

Earlier on AOA:
+ Changing Albany's chicken laws

+ Leah Walsh has worms

Is there any sort of schedule for the tours or the teaching sessions anywhere? I'm interested in the food preservation stuff, and what to aim to be there at that time.
Thanks!

I found a schedule of times/places at the facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/games?ap=1#!/event.php?eid=129783590424439

That links doesn't appear to be correct. I did find it though, and here's the link:

This was a great event, and not just because of the corpses!

I don't think that's what's meant by "serpentine belt replacement".
