Reskilling

Reskilling: Developing skills for self-reliance and community resilience

 

Our group is learning to do things for ourselves, things that are currently done by petroleum power.

One goal is to have a set of practical skills which we can use to support ourselves and contribute to creating resilience in our community. Another is to preserve and pass on skills our ancestors had, and to have fun doing so!

We are open to all ages and skill levels, and just ask that you be open to learning and teaching. Join the group to participate in reskilling events or host your own. Click here to join the group.

Some past events (see the photos below):

  • Bread making
  • Jam and marmalade making
  • Hugelkultur berm building
  • Sheet mulching
  • Pasta making
