What is the Florida Earth skills Gathering all about?
Taken from the website, "The Florida Earth skills Gathering is a five-day event focused on the teaching of ancestral skills in a collaborative environment where curiosity, conversation, and connecting across culture and place are privileged. We aim to create a welcome space for the vibrant, diverse individuals that call this gathering home for these few winter days, a space where learning to make a basket, tan a hide, carve a spoon, or make fire by friction can open us up to the wild-dreaming-questioning spirit, in ourselves and each other, that motivates us toward positive social and ecological change. We are an inter-generational gathering of people from varied backgrounds and ethnicities coming together to learn, create, connect and celebrate- with care for each other and the land."
