Sheep Is Life
Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site hosts mini-Sheep is Life workshops each summer. The next workshop at Hubbell will be in July 2012. Check here again for updates.
The Sheep Is Life program was started in the 1980s with annual conferences beginning in 1996. Dine Be' Iina will announce it's 2012 conference soon. Check their website for details. The "mini-workshops" began in 2000 to bring producer/livestock education, fiber arts and animal husbandry experiences into the local Navajo communities and to share the knowledge with other interested visitors.
Bring your wool projects to share with other participants and a picnic lunch to enjoy in the shade of the cottonwood trees.
