Earthskill Gathering

We are launching the first in a series of Earthskills gatherings at Our Permaculture Farm in Brooksville, Florida.

We will spend the weekend sharing skills from tracking to canning to wild edibles to caring for animals, growing food ecologically, and many other skills. All activities will be outdoors.

Our goal is to create a community setting whereby people with earthskills can meet each other and share their skills with others of like mind, learn from each other, get to know each other, and create stronger communities in our bioregions.

This event is open to everybody, but we expect it mostly to be attended by people in West Central Florida.

Because we want to keep this as accessible as possible, we are asking for donations and suggest a sliding scale amount. Suggested donations range from $25-50, which help us to cover costs of preparing the site, organizing and hosting the event. 

To keep our costs low, we will ask that you bring your own food and eating utensils to this event. We will have facilities to warm it. We will have some camping spots available. Please let us know ahead of time if you intend to camp. Outdoor toilets and shower facilities available. 

Date: Nov 6 - 7, 2021
Times:  
Sat - 10 AM to 5 PM, with evening activities and fire
Sun - 9 AM to 2 PM 
Where: 11251 Salina St, Brooksville, FL 34614

The main activities will happen on Nov 6, but we will have more activities on Sunday for those who would like to deepen their experience. 

We will have a plant and goods swap at 4 PM on Saturday. Please bring plants, seeds, or other goods that you’d like to share at our “really free market” on Saturday.

If you have an earthskill or other idea you’d like to share, please let us know!
