Ancestral and Traditional Skills on a wild rural Homestead
We are an education center and homestead located near Hood River, Oregon. We offer a variety of courses aimed to empower people with the skills they need to live off-the-grid and to craft the substance of their lives with their own hands. With both shorter workshops and longer live-in programs, we serve a wide range of skill and interest levels and integrate ancestral/primitive skills, organic gardening & permaculture, traditional & modern homesteading, alternative technology and much more...
During most of our programs, students live on our farm along with the members of our year-round community.
Learning takes place through specific instruction, as well as by experiencing living and working together, on the land and off-the-grid every day.
Join us and learn to live (and thrive!) without refrigeration or flush toilets, to grow and gather your own food, make your own clothing, containers, shelter and more.
