Meet with locals who are interested in tracking, tool making, edible plants among other "Primitive Skills". Every month we provide a free Skills afternoon, focusing on basic methods for tracking, foraging, fire by friction, tool making...the list goes on. We are also bringing in some the best and the brightest instructors for a more advanced and in-depth learning in the arts that you want. Practical Primitive, OnPoint Tactical to name a couple, along with established flint knappers and foragers. Come on out and join the Primitive Fun, learning new skills and meeting new friends. There is a world in which you live...this could be your door to it. Our monthly meetings are family friendly. "The true value of a man is not judged by what he has, but rather by what he can do without."
