Any Urban Homesteaders in the SLC, UT area??? - Page 3

post #41 of 346
Just going to barge in a smidge here.I used to be a UH in Glendale, by the Gateway..chickens and all...About a year ago we moved north to Roy by Ogden,I'm trying to get going here, but the code is very non chicken, so I'm going to have to build a shed and sneak them!I'm thinking a pygmy goat too...We're kindof killing off the lawn sortof not on purpose...I've been pregnant since we moved here though, so it's slow going.I do want to add that there is a co-housing unit on Utah Street just off Redwood Rd that seems UH too.I bet they'd be happy to host some gatherings in their community space.There's also a small neighborhood of UH-ers off redwood road and 7000ish s.Very fun to drive through,chickens ALL over,like a small farming community right in the center of the valley!

I (hopefully) sent invitations to everyone who has posted on this thread with directions to my house. If for some reason you didn't get one and you are interested in getting together tomorrow at 1, pm me and I'll send an invite.

Thanks! See y'all then!

Alyssa- your mailbox is too full, so I'll post here:

Thank you! for the invite.. I will be at work, but would you mind if just my DH and Sebastian came, and I can meet them after work (2:20ish)? Or, if you don't mind me coming a little later that would be OK too.

I'd love to come but I didn't get a PM. If someone can PM me (Alyssa's PM box is full)...

Thanks! Wow, this will be fun!

Oops! I just cleared out my inbox... sorry about that! Emma, I'll send you an invite.

DH's are also welcome! Mine won't be here... but you'll meet him another time probably.

Sorry I missed too!
I did get this email though today, if you guys are interested in this, specifically the bolded part. I'll probably check it out tomorrow!


The University of Utah is introducing it's FIRST campus-based
Farmers' Market starting Fall Semester 2008! This new market
will enable students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community

delicious bounty of local peaches, heirloom tomatoes, and corn,
and handmade jewelry, pottery candles and more.

whole suite of educational opportunities!

Wow! That sounds awesome! I wish they would have done that when I was there! I never had time to make it to the farmer's market when I was in school!

Seems our rv days may be coming to a close and will be looking for a place. If you mamas have any heads up on a spot in/around Salt Lake with enough room for a couple/three hens, a small veggie space and compost, will you shout it out to me?
If I have to live in a stick house, I WANT SOME HOMESTEADING SPACE!!!
I don't think we are going to buy another house, dh doesn't do "mr. fix-it" so I think renting is the best option for us.
TIA!

I want to thank Delfuego for hosting such a wonderful get together on Wednesday. It was so great to meet some of the women from this thread and share ideas, stories, goals etc.

My little girl loved it so much that she cant wait for the next Utah Urban Homesteaders get together.

I agreed to host the event next month. I will be demonstrating toy making. I will be sending a materials list closer to the day (the day I have yet to pick) for people who are intersted in making an incredibly cute homemade toy.

Thanks again everyone that showed up and I hope more can make it next month!!!!

That's kind of big for what we want/need. Something along the lines of 2-3 bdrm, 1 ba. $900 or less per month.


Indian Corn: The farmers market? I usually see it in the regular grocery too, closer to fall.
post #56 of 346
Thanks purplepetal! We had a great time with everyone over! I hope to meet more homesteaders at your house next month too! I think this is a really cool thing we're starting here!!!

I picked a whole bunch of tomatoes from my grandpa's garden today and am planning on canning them Tuesday afternoon. If anyone wants to come learn how, I could certainly use some help and other kids to distract ds! PM me (or call if you have my number) if you're up for a little playdate/"putting up" party!

Salt Phoenix, I'll let you know if I hear of anything in that range!

Does anyone here know the best way to dry herbs?

I have hung some lavender, hops and rosemary upside down about a week and a half ago for an activity for the kids and am hoping that it will work.

We will also be picking some of our basil this weekend and would like to preserve it in as many different forms as possible i.e. dried, pesto. If anyone has other technics or ideas let me know.

thanks

Hey, Wonder Woman,

I just wanted to let you know that I left town and came back again already, so I am free to play on Saturday (I think! I have fam in town and so far no big plans for that time!).

Yay!

your plan for herbs sounds great. The whole thing sounds wonderful.

I'll get in touch with you somehow...
