Cam and I have the set the date for our annual Spring workshop here at Sunflower Farm. We offer a full day workshop here in the spring, and again in the fall. There is space for just 10 participants so if you are hoping to join us, please let us know as soon as possible!

This year we’ve chosen Saturday, May 4th. The workshop will run from 9 am to 4 pm and includes lunch, refreshments and one of our books. The cost is $120 per person.

We call it the Living Sustainably and Independently, Ready for Rough Times, Hands-On, Solar-Powered, All-You-Can-Grow Workshop.

Cam and I really enjoy these workshops and our participants seem to appreciate them too! But don’t take my word for it. Here are some comments from past participants;

“Coming today was a dream come true – I’ve only every read about ‘this stuff.’ It was encouraging & enlightening. Thanks so much. Love, love, love it!”“My entire time visiting … was such a wonderful experience. It was so interesting to see all these things I have read about for the past couple of years and a real honour to meet you both … I’m sure that hosting such an event takes considerable time, energy and preparation, and your hospitality and openness far exceeded my expectations.”

“It’s great to learn from someone who has been at it for so long!”

“Thank you. Excellent workshop. Learned valuable information!”

“Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home and sharing your passions with us!”

“Cam’s enthusiasm and passion is contagious.”

“Very interesting, informative and thought-provoking!”

“Enjoyed the day immensely. Very practical ideas on reducing dependence on fossil fuels.”

“Thank you not only for the information but I especially liked the fact that is was coming from someone who is living it!”

“Cam is a very interesting speaker. He knows his stuff, he is passionate about it and I also enjoyed his humour!”

“I was really impressed that the whole day lived up to the title! Cam has woven together a giant tapestry of knowledge and how-to; hearing and seeing his work in action was really inspiring.”

“Cam & Michelle shared their experience of their journey to sustainable living with us – through science, humour and the wisdom that comes from just doing it!”

Suzie & I just spent a day with Cam & Michelle Mather at Sunflower farm. These folks are off the grid publishers of some amazing books. If you are interested in learning about how you can leave a smaller foot print on this earth and leave a better world for our children I recommend you read Cam’s book “Thriving during challenging times” a must read in my opinion. “

“It is never too late to begin to prepare for a crisis situation. This is a valuable and a very wealthy & healthy resource of information to add to your arsenal. Don’t be ignorant of today’s deterioration that may put you in an unprepared situation which you may be able to prevent by simply attending one of these workshops. What do you have to lose? Nothing, but every to gain. Attend one!”

If you live too far away to attend a workshop, please consider purchasing one of our books or DVDs. Gardening season is quickly approaching and I highly recommend Cam’s book “The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook” and/or his “Grow Your Own Vegetables” DVD. Will on Facebook recently wrote; Bought the book and the DVD and have been gardening like a champ ever since!!!” Thanks Will!
