Event: Greater Ithaca Skill Share (Sunday 11/18)


****SUNDAY (11/18)****
Extreme weather, climate change, and social isolation got you down?
Get together, get skilled, and have fun!

In the spirit of increasing community resilience White Hawk Ecovillage is hosting the "Greater Ithaca Skill Share" on Sunday, Nov. 18th!

The event is free and activities for children will be available and supported.

It will be semi-structured and will offer a morning session of predetermined skills and an open-space afternoon session to let our community members share a skill they love. So come prepared to learn and if you've got a skill to share come prepared to teach! More details on the flow of day can be found on the attached flier.

Some of the featured skills include:

Root cellaring and pressure canning - presented by Ithacan (, Ithaca's food preservation educational network (canning workshop requests a $2-4 donation for materials and edibles that YOU'LL TAKE HOME)

Knitting, spinning, and other handwork - presented by the Danby Spinners Group

Field to Table - Homescale Chicken processing

Chestnut tree planting

Soap making

Sheet mulching

and much much more!

Please make sure to bring:
weather appropriate clothing (some activities will be outdoors)
a water bottle
a dish to pass
eating ware and utensils
cloth or clothing of natural fabric to dye (if you're interested)
a skill to share, if you're feeling inspired

There is a hope to make this a recurrent event (seasonally, semi-annually or annually) and if you're interested in seeing some other skills represented that weren't or want to help organize future Skill Share events we'll be gathering names and ideas to help with future incarnations.
