Like any business, Small Food Business is constantly changing and evolving, thanks in part to your feedback and recommendations. While the online forum didn’t pan out as hoped and has been disabled, I am excited to announce that Small Food Business will begin offering webinars. Some webinars will feature business experts who will speak about what you can to do grow your business while other webinars will be “Potlucks” where anyone who’s interested can come and share ideas/challenges/frustrations/and just generally connect with others in the food entrepreneurship community.

Have you ever thought about going back to school? What about if you could go back to school and learn how to turn your passion for food into a business? If you’ve ever dreamt of starting your own artisan food business but don’t know where to begin, I hope you’ll consider joining me at the Starting A Food Business class this October in Seattle. This comprehensive class, taught by myself and Zoe Bartlett – another experienced small food entrepreneur – will lead students through the process of starting a food business. Students will learn to cost products, prepare food specific business plans, and how to obtain health and other required permits.
The four-part noncredit class, priced at $125, will take place every Wednesday in October starting on Wednesday Oct 5th from 6p-9p at North Seattle Community College. More information about the class can be found here or by contacting me directly at info (at) smallfoodbiz (dot) com.
A really interesting opportunity came across my desk that I thought might be fun for anyone in the Seattle area or anyone who will happen to be here on July 10th. Sweetlife Farm, located a short ferry ride from Seattle on Bainbridge Island, is hosting a Cooking With Lavender class on July 10 from 10a- 2p. You’ll be able to learn about different lavender types and get ideas about how lavender can be incorporated into sweet and savory dishes. The $75 class fee includes a lavender-themed lunch and you’ll get a Sweetlife Lavender Handbook to take home with you. You’ll also be given a tour of the farm where there are, or so I’m told, new Jack Russell puppies (you do not get to take those home with you!) . The workshop does have a class limit in order to keep the experience intimate and engaging for everyone involved so if you’re interested you can check out more information on the Sweetlife Farms website.
