In conjunction with my Survival Medicine events, my good friends Jim and Laura Fry offer homesteading classes at their farm, Stone Garden Farm and Museum, either the day before or the day after my workshops (or both). Or sometimes we arrange an informal evening with the Fry family just to socialize, get to know each other, and explore their unique farm. I’ve listed their classes on the next page – be sure to avail yourself of this wonderful opportunity. Check my web site to see which class is offered in conjunction with the Survival Medicine Workshop you’ll be attending, or call the number below for additional details.

The Fry’s farm is located at 2891 Southern Road, Richfield, Ohio 44286, approximately 30–45 minutes north of my “Farmageddon” location. They also offer overnight camping space for $5, or teepee rental for $15 per night. Museum and farm tours along with viewing of all the tools needed for self-sufficiency are free.

    Dr. Cindy – My wife and I are interested in coming to OH and taking your Survival Medicine 201 class. We have not had your 101 class, but we have taken Chuck Fenwick’s 3 day Medical Corps class in Marietta, OH and Dr. Joe & Nurse Amy’s suturing class in FL. Looking at your curriculum for your 101 Class, I believe that we have met the prerequisite. Please let us know if this is acceptable as soon as possible so that we can start making arrangements for the Nov class. We would also like to do the Homesteading classes before and after your class. Thanks. Chris Hooper
