Pocatello–Dr. Shanon Brooks, founder and president of Utah-based Monticello College and well-known speaker on the New Economy, will return to Pocatello this month to present the second workshop in his Georgics series.

The word “Georgic” is derived from a pair of Greek words meaning “to work the earth.”  While the term was originally used to describe poems on agricultural or rural themes, Dr. Brooks explains that its fuller meaning is “the basic concept that man’s liberty, indeed, his life is dependent upon himself, working the earth and depending on Providence.”  (For more information, see Dr. Brooks’ full article on this topic, here.)

The upcoming workshop, titled “Year-Round Food Production,” will cover the following topics:

  • Year Round Food Production
  • Cold Climate Natural Beekeeping
  • Land Race Seed Procurement

The Pocatello class will be held on September 21 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Registration is $95 per person.  While no refunds can be given, a participant who finds himself unable to attend may send someone else in his place.  Participants should bring their own lunch, water, a hat and gloves, and some way to take notes.  Please note that since this class is not designed for children, only non-walking infants may accompany their parents.
