A series of informational workshops is planned this fall at the Stephens Branch Library in support of the growing urban homesteading movement.

Led by local specialists, the four-part series, “Farm It! Darn It! The Urban Homesteading Series,” will be presented from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays, Sept. 4, 11 and 25 and Tuesday, Oct. 8, at the library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

“Whether you are looking to create a sustainable lifestyle or just interested in acquiring a cool, new skill, this series has something for everyone,” a news release said. The schedule includes:

* Wednesday, Sept. 4: Home Winemaking by Chik Brenneman, winemaker, manager of the UC Davis campus vineyards and winery, regular columnist for Winemaker’s Magazine and a teacher;

* Wednesday, Sept. 11: Home Brewing by John Sanatar, president of the Greenbelt Brewers Association. The Greenbelt Brewers Association won the 2012 California Homebrew Club of the year award and is an American Homebrew Association-recognized club dedicated to the joy of home brewing of beer.

* Wednesday, Sept. 25: Kitchen Botany by Ellen Dean, curator of the UCD Center for Plant Diversity and Plant Sciences. She will address specifically what plant parts we use from what plant families; and

* Tuesday, Oct. 8: Homemade Ricotta by Julie Cross, Davis Food Co-op marketing and education director, and Julie Loke of the Davis Food Co-op Teaching Kitchen. They will demonstrate how to make ricotta cheese as well as share recipes to use both the cheese and leftover whey.

“An increasing number of people in our community are turning to their own yards and kitchens to create a self-sufficient lifestyle,” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong. “In addition to these workshops, the Yolo County Library also provides a wide array of DIY (do-it-yourself) books, magazines and visual materials to support library patrons in their learning process.”

No reservations are required for this free series. The Blanchard Room of the library is accessible for people with disabilities. For more information, contact Joan Tuss at 530-757-5588 or [email protected] or visit www.yolocountylibrary.org.
