Event Description:

The Earth Knack 25th Annual Gathering is an opportunity for the whole family to spend five fun-filled days learning to reconnect to the Earth in a practical and moving way. Our top-notch instructors will offer courses in skills that all our ancestors had a knack for. This once-common knowledge, aeons old, is quickly becoming lost as we trade "up" in technology. As we become more specialized, we lose sight of the simple pleasures of picking a fresh salad near a mountain stream, making a stone into a sharp tool, weaving a basket to carry our things, or creating beautiful clothing.

What to Bring: Go to the website for a full list of what to bring and how to prepare.
