Through a generous grant by United Power, we are able to significantly reduce the cost of this class. Originally $250 per person, now it is only $150 per person for the 2 day training. These fees primarily help us cover the costs of the instructors and our insurance for the class, so your support is greatly appreciated!
Work off the classroom fee with labor in our regular Saws & Slaws events! Ask Jody for more details.
