i feel compelled to share this with the group,
Woodlanders Gathering is an intimate regional gathering
It has been something of a pilgrimage to me for 8+ years now. i've met some truly great people here. as i have at the permaculture convergences.
to me it feels akin to a "permaculturist's" arts & nature retreat..
it is happening tomorrow through sunday in Warwick,NY...there are buses from port-authority every 1/2 hour.
NJ transit # 196 is express 1-1/2 hour ride... 197,198 are locals (40minutes longer)
fees are sliding scale,whatever you can afford, suggested amounts are on the website(s)
i am offering a bamboo flute-making workshop . we may build an earthen-oven , as well as a Fire-Walk (ie:walking on hot coals)..
see all the current offerings on the sites below . other offers are always welcome.
