Hayes Valley Farm and the Bay Area Community Exchange (BACE) Timebank are hosting an urban Homestead Skillshare Festival on Saturday, May 26, 2012 in San Francisco. The festival will share sustainable living and self-sufficiency skills, with an emphasis on reaching low-income people and youth. The organizers are using timebank hours to create the festival and attendees have the option to pay with dollars or timebank hours.

The two-dozen workshop topics include: bike machines, solar ovens, composting, urban gardening, DIY green cleaning, wine-making, bee-keeping, backyard livestock, candle-making and more. There will also be music, food, and Spanish translation at the event.

Sign up on the Festival's Eventbrite page.

Shareable is a media sponsor of this event.

Things I share: I don't own a car, so I share cars by using City CarShare. I have borrowed through Neighborgoods, given and received things via Craigslist, Freecycle, and Yerdle, exchanged on swap.com, and participated in the BACE Timebank.
