In the 1920’s consumerism as an American way of life began to deeply take hold of our culture. Today we are in danger of losing the agrarian and homemaking skills that have been common through all of human history. Can we reclaim the habits and knowledge necessary for a resilient life in the twilight of consumer culture?

Join us Tuesday, May 17 (6-8pm) at Mountain Run Farm‘s Camp Sedalia in northern Bedford County for the Land & Table ‘Resilient Living Forum’ and Potluck. Come share your tips and best practices related to:


  • Raising chickens for eggs.
  • Baking your own bread.
  • Foraging for wild foods and herbs.
  • Growing a veggie garden.
  • Meat: wild vs. raised (ex: rabbits, deer, and more).
  • Sourcing local food from others.


Bring a main dish to share. This is a potluck.
(Or your own dinner if you do not want to participate in the potluck).

Bring your own dishware (plate, utensils, etc).

– Tip the chicken and help support our work.

This is an outdoor event (with shelter) and is rain or shine. Please dress for the weather.

Kids are welcome but they must be attended to by a parent during the event.

PLEASE NOTE: As always, if you are not feeling well, or have a fever, we ask that you stay home and rest.
