LFTN Spring Workshop 2022 – TN

April 28, 2022 @ 8:00 am - April 30, 2022 @ 5:00 pm CDT


Small Business Skills | Homesteading | Energy | Food | Hard Skills | Personal Growth

Join us at the Holler Homestead as we spend three days learning homesteading arts…business development… food management… practical solar energy… specific skill sessions… and fun!

This year, we will focus on another independence-building project while also running great sessions in the classroom.

The build will either be a Miyagi Pond as the foundation for a larger aquaponics system or a solar installation!

Sessions will focus on personal and self improvement, developing energy, and food independence. You’ll find many demonstrations, throughout the event, of practical skills like milling wood, welding, knife care, and installing fencing.

As always, there are the barter blanket; the side meetings with new friends and experts; swag to purchase; late-night karaoke; and, well, too much to think of all at once.

We’ll meet in a heated and cooled basement structure and work on the projects outside, in the fresh air. There may be concurrent sessions, which would present you with a choice of where to devote your time. We’ve changed the approach from side-hustle accelerators to a speed-dating model, to enable more participants to pitch in with advice that can help more people get their good ideas on the road.

In short, this still ain’t your Daddy’s homesteading workshop! It’s all up to date.

  • Session facilitators eager to help you well beyond their presentations
  • Real food, from local farms, and plenty of it
  • Beverages, karaoke, knife-throwing, and hijinks
  • The proper human diet
  • Raise, cook, and preserve food
  • Business building and marketing
  • Becoming a better you
  • How to get stuff done
  • Quality time with the best people on earth

If you want to get hands-on with permaculture, farming, or getting your own side hustle going, this is THE best place in Tennessee to come in 2022.
