Come on out for the first UHL Community Skillshare Day! The afternoon will feature skillshares by UHL members. See below for more details.

This is a great opportunity to learn some skills and to socialize with fellow members of the UHL!

Skillshare Topics:

We'll begin the day with a little movement. Abraham Dorantes will be leading a short session on Boabom (pronounced bo-ha-bom, ryhmes with rome), a system of Meditation in Movement developing Self-healing, Self-Defense(internal-external) and Self-Awareness(your body, your thoughts and the space around you). Abraham is a Student/Assistant Teacher of the Boston School of Boabom in Brookline.

Making Self-watering garden containers:
Self-watering garden containers (aka: Sub-irrigated Planters) are a terrific way to produce huge amounts of food in small urban spaces. Most vegetable plants are happiest when they are able to “drink” whenever they are “thirsty”. A constant source of appropriate moisture is the secret to the self-watering container’s success. Learn how to make your own containers using inexpensive and readily available materials. Presented by Cornelia Hoskin, HOMEGROWN Shepherdess at www.HOMEGROWN.org – an online community of cooks, growers and do-it-yourselfers celebrating the “culture” in agriculture.

Making Beef Jerky:
Chris Tolles will be demonstrating a foolproof, bootleg, almost-totally sanitary way to transform cheaper cuts of beef into delicious beef jerky with only a box fan and two furnace filters! Due to the length of time required, it won't be possible to demo the entire process, but Chris will have some of his own finished product on hand for sampling.

Kombucha Making:
Rachel and Austin Ritter will demonstrate how to make Kombucha. More details TBA.

Making Cordials:
Jaime Alberts will demonstrate how to make cordials. More details TBA.

Converting a car to run on straight vegetable oil:
Pat Keaney, the proprietor of Green Grease Monkey, will be discussing how to convert a diesel vehicle to run on vegetable oil. More details TBA.
