Want to reconnect with Earth, eat healthy, get exercise, learn new skills, and meet great people? This is a group for folks interested in sharing knowledge on living from the land. All skill levels and ages are welcome.

We like to offer plenty of opportunities for members to come together and practice our skills. So we have free events at least once per month that focus on things like searching for wild foods, completing projects that would traditionally be done in large communities (such as processing a large harvest or building a shelter), swapping home made items with other members, or just sitting around a fire working on traditional crafts. We also hold a variety of classes for our members. The topics of these classes are chosen based on member interest and range from edible and medicinal plant walks to mushroom growing to cooking classes to tanning and primitive tool making. Fees for these classes will vary.

Some of our outdoor events are held in areas that are not accessible to those with limited mobility. This will be noted in the event description. On rare occasions you may need minimal equipment (such as waders or a hunting vest). We never want to exclude anyone from classes due to cost, so if you cannot afford the fee please contact the instructor to discuss barter or work study.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
