Homesteading & Rewilding Skillshare at Tryon Life Community Farm
August 7th & 8th, 2010
Saturday: 10am - 10pm,   Sunday: 10am - 5pm


Share your heart, share your mind, share your skillls!  We invite folks of all ages to join in this skillshare.  The offerings will include all the following, and more:

Fire by friction
Tanning hides
Herbal medicine
Wild food
Drop spindles
Flint knapping
Cheese making
Book binding
Trade Blanket
Kid's Activities
 & back by popular demand…  The Kissing Workshop

As well as all the land-based skills you bring to share!


The skillshare goes from 10am - 10pm on saturday. there will be an evening fire and trade blanket. on sunday, it goes from 10am to 5pm.


This is a co-created event - please bring your land-based skills to share! it is also an experiment in gift economy, though some kind of contribution is requested to support our hosts. This might be a monetary donation, volunteering to drive a shuttle shift, or really busting it to help us clean up.

Please bring food for the community kitchen! it would be especially helpful if you could dumpster some produce on yr way over. skillshare participants will have access to a full kitchen but it'll take the self-organization of the group to make meals happen.

you can ride your bike to the farm (11640 sw boones ferry rd.) but we don't have any space for cars! Park at or ride the #12 bus to Barbur Blvd Transit Center Park and Ride,  9712 SW Barbur BLVD. Shuttles will bring you to the farm at 9, 10, 12, 4 & 5 on both saturday and sunday.

Camping is available on saturday night but you MUST reserve a space beforehand. that's a sliding scale of $5 - $25.

For more information or to volunteer to help, call aspen at 208 221 9536,, or tinder at 518 567 9044.
