After spending a few years growing my own food and buying from local farmers, the next logical step, for me, is to learn how to source the ultimate in local meat: Deer. Jackson Landers, a Charlottesville based insurance broker, started teaching a class last fall and got some coverage in the New York Times about it. He’s just announced a weekend condensed class in February that covers everything from deer anatomy, natural history, gun safety (as well as a trip to the range), field dressing, and final butchering, cooking, and tasting. The course costs $380.

I’ll be packing up my trusty Winchester Model 70 (in ’30-06) and heading down to Jack’s weekend course “Deer Hunting for Locavores” in Charlottesville on February 20-21. There are still a few slots left as of this writing.

John has lived in DC since attending CUA’s Architecture school starting in 1995. He is a UI/UX/Design guru for LivingSocial and also plays in numerous bands (Juniper Lane, Rotoscope, Boboroshi & Kynz) and loves hyping people on eating local food, sustainable human settlement patterns, gardening, and good old fashioned rock and roll and electronica. He runs the dirt lab (aka mega garden) for WeLoveDC, where he eats most of the proceeds.
