Let us go beyond environmental conservation, and seek to begin the processes of rewilding both habitats and humanity. This entails fostering the re-growth of natural ecosystems and rediscovering that we can live fulfilling and beautiful lives without energy-intensive, modern-technologies.
This is not to completely reject all our modern ways of life, but to open a path to integrate older and more sustainable traditions back into our daily existence one step at a time.
Our current goals include:
- Creating a community workshop and resource center for traditional crafts. A plan to learn and grow skills together. Such a space may also have a tool library, gallery, and shop with materials, and crafts for sale and trade.
- Beginning a series of “barn-raising” events that would build shared infrastructure oriented towards longterm sustainability. This will start with a native plant focused community garden and an earth oven work party.
- Expanding our calendar of ongoing classes and craft events, offering classes by experienced and motivated instructors
