PASA Auction Display, Handbook Contents

This morning I set up the display of homemade items donated by homesteaders to the PASA benefit auction over at the Penn Stater, including a jar of honey, a wooden honey dipper, six bottles of beer, two pottery bowls, a knitted hat, two woven placemats, two bars of soap, one pound of  charcuterie, a cold frame, a jar of herbal body cream, two jars of preserves and a native bee nesting block.

If you’re going to the conference, please check it out, and also stop by the Good Food Neighborhood table, where you can pick up a Taproot Kitchen fundraiser form. There’s also a copy of the Homesteader’s Handbook at the GFN table if you want to take a look-see. For the duration of the fundraiser (Feb. 6 – April 6), handbooks will be a gift to donors who contribute $50 or more.
