Tomorrow, the gathering begins in beautiful Hawthorne, FL. There's a bike ride down there via the Hawthorne trail organized. If you've been to Mycol's Finca for the previous gatherings, you know it's a special time.
Here's some info from the Putnam Land Conservancy, who now sponsor the event:
"We invite people of all tribes to join us in creating conscious community and in celebrating our living, breathing planet by learning and sharing truly sustainable living skills.
With more than 70 instructors sharing skills for adults and kids, plus morning and evening programming, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
The Florida Earthskills Gathering is a unique blend of enthusiasts who bring abundant skills and a great spirit of co-creation to this homespun gathering. By gathering here, we acknowledge that the time is ripe for modern, “civilized” humans to become more ecologically aware, to reclaim the true meaning of sustainability, and to help grow a culture of thriving which can only be achieved by living in symbiosis with each other and with our beloved Earth.
Through experiential learning, objects and skills will be crafted to provide food, shelter, clean water, and deep healing of the earth and ourselves."
