Homespun Seasonal Living : An E-Course
Registration is now open for the Summer Session!
Many of us are trying to reconnect to seasonal, home-based living. While we can figure out that gardening is done in the summer and snow shoveling is done in winter many folks get lost in where to go, or what to do next. Even those of us who’ve been at it a while, need a little extra inspiration now and then to stay true to our seasonal desires. Homespun Seasonal Living is an e-class & workshop designed to walk with you along this seasonal journey. Whether you’re just beginning or somewhere in the middle of this path, this class will help you find ways to celebrate and create a seasonal life.
Homespun Seasonal Living will help you achieve your goals of seasonal living and of creating a homespun and homemade life. We’ll work together to create a life for ourselves and our families that revolves around the natural rhythms of the earth’s seasons.
You’ll find this class to be fun and inspiring with an inclusive, common-sense approach. I don’t embrace a ‘one true way’ philosophy in anything and most certainly don’t teach classes in that manner. I’ll share advice based on my own experiences, but will encourage you find your way by doing things with your own hands and seeking out your own methods. I’ll be a guide on this journey, someone who presents ideas and projects for the winter season, but fully expect students to follow their own path, taking what they need and leaving the rest behind.

Comments from previous Homespun Seasonal Living class participants:
“In today’s fast paced, readymade world it’s easy to lose sight of the wonders around us. Kathie’s Homespun Seasonal Living class helped me bring the natural world back into sharp focus and enjoy all the simple goodness each new season has to offer.” ~ Katherine
“Living a happy productive life means being able to step out of the craziness of the everyday and actually live your life, not just part of the flow. Kathie, using a variety of creative prompts, leads one to not only see life for what it is but to also experience the wonder; to become more aware of our suroundings and discover what we really want out of life and how to get it!. After taking several of Kathie’s classes I have to say, be careful what you wish for as it usually comes to fruition!” ~Annette
“I’ve thoroughly have enjoyed this winter’s class. So much inspiration and food for thought! I can’t wait to sign up for the spring course.” ~Monica
“I live seasonally without really thinking about it, but am now open to doing so more purposely and feeling more connected and grounded within the season and with nature and “the universe” – Anonymous Comment taken from post-course survey
“I really enjoyed your Seasonal Living Spring class. We try to eat locally/seasonally, but I’d gotten in a rut and your class provided the nudge I needed to look around again to see if other sources of local food have appeared since last I looked–turns out there’s an organic berry and veggie farm right down the road from our new home! And I was inspired to really look around and truly experience spring in our new place, instead of missing the things we had at our old home (which I still got to see some of, since we were still maintaining the yard while it was on the market, so we still got to enjoy fresh-off-the-tree loquats and smell the orange blossoms). Instead of just saying “oh, there’s a bird living in this old watering can someone left here” I took the time to look it up and found that she’s a Carolina wren (also called a Florida wren) and that in the springtime they raise babies, often in manmade hidey-holes–she raised her family right outside my kitchen window, and now I know that in the spring I can look for wrens around our property. I think my favorite lesson was the one on blooming where you’re planted, enjoying the current season instead of longing for something we don’t have right now. This is key to finding contentment, I think, and applies to all aspects of life, not just seasonal delights. This lesson, along with the others, has provided food for thought as well as ways to continue to live seasonally. Thank you!” ~ Helena
