He has won more than a dozen awards for journalism and literature. Caleb teaches “Forgotten Skills” classes ranging from winter gardening, pioneer jams and jellies, growing early and long-keeper vegetables, raising chickens, and much more.

Kirsten Skirvin is a renaissance woman and Master Herbalist whose experience spans over twenty years. She fell in love with herbs and all their possibilities while studying edible plants for survival. She loves period costumes, large hats, aprons with pockets, and the smell of fresh flowers. The old arts call to her, demanding to be mastered, though she has yet to make a broom. She lives near the Wasatch Mountains with her amazingly supportive husband and their seven great kids.
