Returning & Reskilling Series

Intentional or not, we are always forming and evolving our relationship with the land. As our world moves increasingly toward technological advancement and convenience driven invention, historical knowledge connected to living with landscape and place is lost. Communities and individuals no longer carry the skills to explore and navigate the wilderness or work with the natural places where we live to meet our daily needs and creative inspirations. This series aims to return land-based living skills to our community and reskilling a new generation to live with the land.
