Piedmont Earthskills Gathering @ Shakori Hills
Apr 4 – Apr 8 all-day

Piedmont Earthskills Gathering
April 4-8, 2018 at Shakori Hills in Pittsboro, NC

The Gathering will be a 5 day and 4-night event that offers in-depth learning for individuals and families. This educational/enrichment program will be focused on Primitive Living Skills and Homesteading. Top quality instructors will teach dozens of ancestral and heritage primitive skills such as matchless fire making, edible and medicinal plants, stone tool creation and use, ancient weaponry and basket making, just to name a few.

Earthskills gatherings are events where new friendships are forged, old friendships refined, and the empowering knowledge of pioneer, survival, native and traditional primitive skills are shared. These programs give participants the opportunity to become proficient in skills that have helped them redefine life goals and directions as well as broaden their knowledge of sustainable life ways, connection to nature, and the power of community. After a full day of hands-on instruction, evening programs give us the opportunity to join in the revival of the great oral tradition of storytelling around the council fire, or the option to pull up a chair at any one of the camps where homegrown and traditional Appalachian music is played, or the opportunity to answer the call of the drum and dance around the fire under a star-filled sky.
