Simple Living for Apartment Dwellers
There's no better time to dip a toe into urban homesteading than autumn when the weather is cooling down and life is returning to cozy simplicity after a summer of over-indulgence. The crisp air has us turning inward in preparation for the upcoming season. We clean out our closets to make way for winter clothing, cook nourishing meals with the end of summer produce, prioritize and organize our homes and families and then ... settle down and relax.
Simplify your life for the upcoming fall season by learning to let go of expectations, clutter and contaminants in this Dabble class, which focuses on eco-friendly changes you can make to your home that aid in your walk toward wellness.
Instruction will begin with a basic introduction to the world of urban homesteading and highlight key components of simple living including: cleaning, cooking, composting, gardening, clutter control and self-reflection. Students will leave with a list of easy practices to implement, motivation to get started and resources and inspirations to keep them going through the cold months until spring arrives once again.

Kelli has been creating since she was four years old, sewing quilts at her grandmother's side. An avid crafter, she is involved in and deeply committed to the Chicago handmade community, serving as the Director of the Urban Folk Circuit, Chicago's only year-round, traveling craft market series.
Kelli lives in Portage Park with her redheaded husband where they work to renovate their big, red urban farmhouse into an inspiring homestead. Her daily living reflects her desire to engage in all things fulfilling, life-giving, and that aid her in her quest for simplicity. After quitting a highly stressful social service job more than two years ago, Kelli now focuses her attention on raising an organic garden and a small flock of hens, maintaining their home as chemically-free as possible, cooking from scratch and sewing to her heart's content.
