Earthskills Institute Festival
The second annual Earthskills Institute Festival is set to take place in the valley May 11thto 20th. This festival aims to build a community that empowers people to be self-sufficient and resilient through the sharing of primitive, traditional and modern knowledge, skills, and technology. Last year the event featured workshops on primitive fire making, leather working, hunting and tracking, permaculture, wild foraging, knifemanship, archery and yoga, and included children’s activities, communal dinners and social activities. This year the event is expected to grow and include more skill sets such as stone knapping, bow making, soap making, fermenting, gardening, basketry, spiritual practice, and more.
