This annual spring event brings people together to learn practical skills in hands-on classes focused on housing, clothing, and feeding ourselves in a world without fossil fuels. In addition to dozens of classes taking place over two days, we will also have a social aspect: camping, meals, a documentary screening, and perhaps music. We are tentatively looking at Memorial Day weekend (May 25–26) 2019 in the Cooksville, Wisconsin. This will be the pilot year of what we hope will be an annual festival of classes related to sustainability, DIY, hands-on, and individual or community self-sufficiency.
We need your help to get this first year’s SSS off the ground. While we have a basic outline of this event, we’d like to create a small group of individuals who can brainstorm solutions and come to a consensus on questions of course topics and themes, instructor recruiting and compensation, pricing and monetary considerations, and others. Volunteers will receive free admission in recognition of their assistance. While we will meet in person at least once in the beginning and as the event approaches, much of the work will be done online to minimize your overall time commitment. If you are interested in signing up to volunteer or hearing more about what it would entail, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you’re already excited about this and can’t wait, check out the Wisconsin Permaculture Convergence, coming up this fall.
