My recommendation would be for you to immerse yourself into the Foxfire books, this is a fantastic set of books filled full of crafts of yesteryear. This will help
you quickly Find links to them that can do and have the multigenerational working tools that identify them as your future instructors ! Good luck, and Good hunting!

Sounds like a group I would like to join, but I live in NH. There a few classes in my area, but one that was not on your list was fermentation. I was not just thinking yogurt or cheese, or drinks, but all vegetables I hear can be fermented such as cabbage to sauerkraut, etc. A way to preserve vegetables that does not involve drying or refrigeration(depending on how processed). I learned alot on my own courtesy of the library and now the internet, but I think boyscouts and girlscouts and even elementary schools can have some survival skills classes even if part of social studies or elective classes. I'm sure there would be plenty of interest. I brought up the scouts, because as a cub assistant, they were so restricted to what they were allowed to do, it was hard to keep them interested.

I have been Poo-less for quite a while now. This includes deodorant. I found a great recipe for a quick mix that makes just over 2 sticks of deodorant. It works as well or better than the store bought brand and for safety, you can just about eat it. I am looking for a good shampoo recipe made from anything other than castile soap. Has anyone got one to share or other things they do for themselves? I'll give you the website for my stuff if you want to try!
Don't suppose you could give us the recipe? We have hot summers down here and while I'm alright with loosing the shampoo, loosing the deodorant might be one step to far.
