Upcoming Events

Want to learn more about geese? How about homesteading in general, or our story of turning an old farm into a modern homestead? There's a new Events + Contact section on our website where I'm listing my various speaking engagements and book signings!

It seems a little crazy to be writing about speaking engagements, since I remember starting this blog several years ago with just a couple of geese and an interest in growing my own food. But now I will be talking at the Mother Earth News Fairs throughout the summer, and also will have some local Maine book signings.

First up is the Mother Earth News Fair in Asheville, NC, where I will doing a Guide to Keeping Geese from 11:30am to 12:30pm on the Livestock Conservancy Stage on Sunday, April 29, 2018. Following that will be a book signing and a second talk from 3:30pm to 4:30pm on turning an Old Farm into a Working Homestead on the Grit stage. If you are near Asheville, the Mother Earth News Fair is a fantastic event and I would love to meet you!

Local in Maine? Stop by the wonderful Owl + Turtle Bookshop Cafe in Camden, Maine on Saturday, May 26 for a book signing! Newly arrived goslings will be in tow to greet visitors and plenty of books will be on hand to purchase.

I hope I will see you at some events this summer!
