Following is a syllabus developed by the Hood River, Oregon School
District. The Lummi Island Grange is going to offer a series of
classes/workshops throughout the year. They call it The Country Living
The Country Living Class Series
is geared to fit the age-old concepts of the Grange, which promotes
country living, protecting family farms, and the environment while
building strong communities. These classes will provide island
residents with solutions to rising food and fuel prices, food
insecurity and environmental challenges by resurrecting some long lost
skills, as well as, some new innovative ideas.
