The Lifestyle Farming Conference day of DIY classes is returning to SUNY Cobleskill

SUNY Cobleskill Lifestyle Farming Conference logo 2017 autumnSUNY Cobleskill is bringing back the Lifestyle Farming Conference Saturday, November 11. The event is a full day of classes on all sorts of topics related to farming, gardening, and cooking. Blurbage:

During the second Lifestyle Farming Conference, we will be offering a wider breadth of courses that focus on the fall season. In our classrooms and labs, SUNY Cobleskill faculty, experienced farmers, and craft experts will teach workshops on fruits for fermentation, wine and cider making, cheeses, food preservation, homestead planning, herbal teas, meat smoking, raw milk, bread making, and more. With two levels -- 1.5-hour Introductory Courses and 3-hour Skill Builders -- everyone from novice to experienced homesteaders will find a course to suit their interests and skill levels.

Scanning the list of session topics, it looks like there's a bunch of interesting classes if you're the sort of person who's included to do it or make it yourself (of you'd like to be that person).

Registration is $60 for the whole day ($73 with lunch). There's also $35 registration for the morning only, and $48 registration for the afternoon (which includes lunch). The conference registration process online doubles as the process for picking classes.

SUNY Cobleskill's focus is on agriculture -- its full name is the State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill -- and it has its own farm and dairy facility. It's in Cobleskill (surprise!) in Schoharie County, about a 50-minute drive from Albany.

... So what is the issue with the 250 (or 1000) ft. distance [for blood plasma centers] from residences, schools, or churches? I mean, it's plasma needed to save lives, whether donated or sold. This seems like class bias about the folks opening up their veins for this purpose.
