The Living Arts School of Erie, CO, is offering two workshops this fall with local permaculture designers Amanda Scott and Jared Urchek. Both classes will take place at 63rd St. Farm on Saturday, November 23, 2013.
Amanda Scott, of 63rd St. Farm, is a graduate of the Permaculture through the Seasons! permaculture design course. She will guide this hands on workshop, teaching how to catch the birds, humanely harvest them, what equipment is needed, and how to maintain sanitation during the process. In addition to farming at 63rd St. Farm, Amanda instructs students from a local culinary school on farm to table concepts and building chef/farm relationships. Prior to the farm, Amanda worked in the restaurant industry, including as General Manager at Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse.

Jared Urchek, of Boulder High Country Mushrooms, is also a graduate of the Permaculture through the Seasons! permaculture design course. He furthered his studies through Paul Stamets’ Mushroom Cultivation and Mycoremediation courses. Jared will be offering a workshop on Basic Mycology, exploring the mushroom life cycle, types of mushrooms, basic cultivation skills and concerns, and three easy methods of cultivation. He will also cover use of myco-agriculture and myco-remediation (using mushrooms in agriculture and in cleaning up toxic waste).
