BURLINGTON, Wash. — While we will all miss the camaraderie found meeting kindred spirits in person, the advantages of a virtual expo are many! No bathroom lines, no filled classes, no getting lost trying to find a room! Instead, sit back and enjoy the popular Country Living Expo and Cattlemen’s Winterschool 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day Jan. 29, 30, & 31, 2021, from the comfort of your own home.
With 10 brand new workshops and plenty of mainstay topics in 70 classes, this year’s Expo offers everyone the unique opportunity to take exactly the classes you want. By using the free Zoom platform on your computer, classes can’t fill up, and everyone has a seat!
You can learn to grow hops, make scrumptious Spanish tapas, and put essential oils to work on your farm. Bicycle maintenance, seed saving, sheep dairying, managing wildfire risk, native trees, growing tomatoes, and more! From raising swine to solar power water systems, mushroom cultivation to fruit tree pruning, tractor maintenance to raising waterfowl, there is really something for everyone.
As a special addition to this year’s Expo, everyone registered will receive free access to watch a new film on regenerative agriculture. Narrated by Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is described as a “full-length documentary that sheds light on a new, old approach to farming called regenerative agriculture that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies, and feed the world.”
Adult registration for the entire Expo is $55; sponsored student rate is $10. Registration includes up to 12 classes (four per day) and free access to the film Kiss the Ground. For registration and more information on classes and the film, visit skagit.wsu.edu/CountryLivingExpo.
