150 Years Since End of American Civil War

Mark the anniversary with music: Ballads O'er Bullets!

Saturday, April 18, 2015, 7:00 PM at +Urban Homestead!

150 YEARS AGO – 1865 – marked the end of what would prove to be the bloodiest, costliest and most tragic war ever engaged in by Americans, the US Civil War. This era, that racked up 420 deaths per day, also brought about the birth of what has been called the young country’s first national form of music – and music is what we’re going to focus on: the two decades between 1845 and 1865.

From slavery to freedom, from patriotic fervor to the harsh realities of battle, from folk roots to minstrels to romantic parlor songs, the music of 150 YEARS AGO provides a rich tapestry of our national character, heritage and romantic inclinations, as well as a foundation for the rise of the American songwriting field in all the years to follow.

Featuring TOM FAIR, ROB SANDIFORD and LORIN HART with BOZZ on bass

Tonight! Raising Chickens & Ducks in Your Own Backyard!

Thursday, March 19, 2015, 7:00 PM at +Urban Homestead!

Are you thinking about raising chickens or ducks in your backyard? Then this class is for you!

We’ll give you the nitty gritty details--for newbies only (who have no prior experience raising poultry).

+Jordanne Dervaes, with over a dozen years of experience, will talk you through the basics of responsibly raising poultry in the city.

Review: "Jordanne continually amazes us and others she meets with her immense knowledge of animals. She's not the type to let on how much she knows, but she feels that she should share her knowledge because, as she says, 'I wish someone had done that for me.' I really think she should consider charging for 'Citified Animal' consultations because she's certainly a walking encyclopedia on health, living and behavioral aspects of ducks, chickens, rabbits and now goats."

Learn How to Make and Use Good-for-You KEFIR!

Wednesday, April 22, 2015, 7:00 - 9:00 PM at +Urban Homestead!

Kefir, one of the oldest cultured milk products in existence, is one of the most potent probiotic foods available today. In this class we’ll demonstrate how to ferment the grains in dairy milk and coconut milk.

Then we’ll share some fantastic recipes for integrating this lovely probiotic into your daily life. Kefir isn’t just for making smoothies, learn how to incorporate in everyday foods.

Kefir (pronounced: kuh-fear) is a cultured probiotic beverage, with many times more the amount of beneficial bacteria and yeast than any other milk product. It is superior to yogurt in its ability to enhance intestinal flora, or microbiota.

WHY KEFIR?
-Traditional probiotic
-Promotes healthy gut
-Healthy gut=good health
-Multipurpose food: drink it plain, make smoothies, make sour cream, yogurt, cook with it, make your own fizzy drinks, the possibilities are endless
-Cost effective and delicious!
-Make food your medicine.

Take Home: Kefir Grains worth $18

Hoedown at the Homestead with WRECK N SOW

This Sunday, March 22, 2015, 7:00 PM at +Urban Homestead!

WRECK N SOW plays a blend of Americana music (bluegrass, roots country and old-timey music), with an alternative edge, hailing from Southern California.

More About WRECK N SOW

With a three hour repertoire to draw from, a WNS show is never repetitive. The musicians combine a host of both obscure and recognizable bluegrass, roots country and old-timey covers, with a unique list of original music.

The four vocal styles, provided by Pierre Dupuy, Randy Cochran, Andre Dupuy, and Mike Stave, complement each other, adding further to the bands diversity.

The combined harmonies of all four are laid over the solid rhythm of Randy's bass fiddle, Pierre's guitar, and Andre's mandolin. Added to this is Pierre's haunting and melodic harmonica and the phrasing and execution of Mike's fiddle playing
