Hudson Mohawk Re-Skilling Festival￼
April 9, 2011 @ 12:00 pm – 10:00 pm EDT
A day of skill-sharing and planning featuring workshops with many local and regional teachers to help build a network of shared values and knowledge around urban gardens, food networking, food preservation, passive and alternative energies, water catchment, and social justice. Together we can manifest the critical and necessary transition from resource-rich industrial capitalism to bio-regional sustainability and community. Against the backdrop of anti-war protests around the country, we gather to imagine and build an alternative to endless violence. Don’t miss this all-day festival of workshops, which culminates in a 6 PM community potluck and 7 PM talk by visionary author/activist/farmer Sharon Astyk on “What Will We Eat: An Exploration of the Future of Our Food,” followed by a discussion. The event culminates with an afterparty. Co-Sponsored by Capital District Permaculture Guild, Capital District Transition Network, Troy Bike Rescue, Radix Ecological Center, Ecolocal Living Magazine, and Soulfire Farm.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
