Whatcom Skillshare Faire
August 23rd & 24 - Two days with camping!
Hovander Homestead Park, Ferndale, WA (20 minutes north of Bellingham)
The Whatcom SkillShare Faire – a fun festival about teaching and learning all kinds of useful & practical resilience skills. Years ago, lots of people knew how to repair & sharpen tools, make a braided rug, raise chickens, make soap, build a fence, make simple toys, & much more.
The goal of SkillShare is to help revive those skills, showcase some new ones, and provide a place where all of us can come learn from people more experienced in these crafts and trades.
Our August-sunny Faire this year will have two days of family-friendly Workshops and Demonstrations, plus a great lineup of local Musical Talent, tasty local Food Offerings and the ever-popular local brewery Beer Garden and Fermentation Station.
Lots more information at our website! http://whatcomskillsharefaire.org

Also, this year it will be the site of the Northwest Permaculture Convergence. There will be lots of permaculture workshops at the Faire, and the Convergence will have their annual meeting at the Faire, the morning of the 24th. NW Permie Convergence members can get a deal on food for the weekend from the Faire. See http://www.northwestpermaculture.org/
