Come learn some new skills, or share what you know!!

The Sustainable Skills Society is a member-to-member skill-sharing collaboration.

We are committed to living a simpler, more sustainable way of life which is more connected to our community and invested in the resilience of its members. Through a focus on a healthy balance of self-sufficiency and local reliance we imagine a more sustainable existence, at peace with each other, and in harmony with our environment.

Let's inspire each other to learn and empower our communities to live a more meaningful, joyous, healthy, environmentally sustainable, and socially just life through the sharing of new skills and knowledge. Let's be lifelong learners dedicated to lessening our passively consumptive ways, and working together to reclaim our lives by taking pleasure in simplicity, and shifting to a lifestyle of active participation filled with connection, community, and meaning.

What we do: Organize and promote free or affordable workshops and skill shares on everything related to urban/suburban homesteading, simple lifestyles, self-sufficiency, local reliance, community service, stewardship, and leading healthy, socially and environmentally responsible lives.

Topics are only limited by our imaginations, and could include some of the following: Urban farming, composting, livestock, fiber arts, primitive skills, foraging/ wild edibles, food preservation, cooking, herbal arts, thrift/free stuff, DIY, natural home-made cleaning supplies and beauty products, bike repair, guerilla gardening, pot lucks, film screenings, book talks, outings and educational field trips, seed swaps, co-ops, intentional communities, clothing exchanges, treasure trades, etc!

Don't be shy!  Everyone is somewhere along the path to sustainability and some of us are just beginning... this is a non-judgemental and supportive place to learn and explore.  Sign up to come to a workshop, post one you know about, or organize one for the group!!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
