Florida Earthskills Gathering:
Living Skills for People and Planet
The gathering dates for 2020 are February 5th-9th. The information on this website is relevant to the 2019 event. Please revisit our website in the Fall to see updates about our 10th annual event. Happy Birthday, Florida Earthskills!
The new site for the 2019 gathering is the Wells-Humphries Farm at 9744 228th St., O'Brien, Fl. 32071. ** To prevent overwhelming the small town of O'Brien with traffic, as requested by the Suwannee County zoning board, please follow these directions and NOT THE GPS: When you turn west at the blinking light off of 129, STAY ON 349. Go past the church and continue on 349 past a large field on the left. Turn left on 101st Rd. Then take your first left onto 228th St. Our entrance is just past the cemetery on the right. Thanks for your cooperation :) **
Drinking Water Update: Great News! The well onsite has been tested and approved as a potable water source, as of Jan. 31, 2019.
Worktrade and Instructor Positions have been filled for 2019
We invite you to join us in creating conscious community and in celebrating our living, breathing planet by learning and sharing truly sustainable living skills.
With over 50 instructors sharing skills for adults, teens and kids, plus morning and evening activities, 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.
We play our own music, create our own games, weave our own dance, make our own reality, and live our lives with feet firmly planted on the ground. We grow food, we regard water and air as precious resources, and we honor and respect all beings sharing this existance on Earth. We seek to become a healing part of all that is good and beautiful about life on Earth, and to share this ecological awareness with others for generations to come.
The Florida Earthskills Gathering is a time to learn, share, and experience community and truly sustainable living skills.
