Traditional Skills Workshops

Traditional Skills Workshops started as a student idea to promote sustainability education at BSU.  Why not learn from those in the community that live it?  There is, on average, one workshop per month that focuses on a skill to increase self-sufficiency.  Workshops during the 2009-2010 academic year included brain tanning a deer hide, carding and spinning yarn, breakmaking, using natural dyes, and planning gardens. Have any ideas for a workshop? Let us know!

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
