Urban Homesteading Parties from FarmCurious

Learn to Pickle, Preserve, Can, and More

urban homesteading parties from farmcurious!

In Mom’s heyday, gals would gather at someone’s house to marvel over plastic food storage containers. They knew how to party.

In their honor, let us present the Tupperware party for the DIY generation: urban homesteading get-togethers hosted by Nicole Kramer of FarmCurious.

Gather your closest friends for a beginner’s guide to canning, preserving, pickling, even raising animals (chickens, bees). Kramer demos the necessary equipment, often bringing samples of her own homemade yogurt or plum wine for participants to taste. Her philosophy? It’s easier (and less hippie-dippy) than you think.

Kramer’s grand plan includes a storefront. Get a sneak preview at next weekend’s Eat Real Festival, where she’ll be peddling cheese-making kits, container gardening bags, and sleek lunch boxes from To-Go Ware for your downtown 9 to 5. Because you may take up farming, but you’re a city girl at heart.

For more information, go to farmcurious.com. Visit FarmCurious at the Eat Real Festival, August 27-29, Jack London Square, Oakland (510-250-7811 or eatrealfest.com); and the SF Underground Farmers Market on September 11, SOMArts, 934 Branna Street, between 8th and 9th Streets (foragesf.com).
