Each workshop is all-inclusive, providing all the materials needed to take your homesteading skills to the next level! 

Friday July 28. Cooking the Whole Fish. Amanda Parks, owner of New England Fishmongers, will guide you through the steps of filleting and cooking locally, sustainably caught fish. We will be working with the Catch of the Day - whatever the fishermen are bringing in that week. Each participant will have their own fish to filet and bring home. A list of materials will be sent to registered participants. 

Amanda Parks was introduced to rod and reel fishing through her food system and fisheries work and was hooked after her firt day on the water. Soon after, Amanda partnered with Tim Rider, captain of the F/V Finlander, to set up New England Fishmongers, a boat-to-consumer business that pays fishermen a fair wage for their catch. New England Fishmongers sells only line-caught fish from sustainably minded fishermen.
