earth skills


Earth skills are more than survival skills, they’re a breadth and depth that allow you live comfortably close to the Earth. Essential skills involve finding or making shelter, finding and purifying water, making fire, and finding, cooking, and preserving food. Add the ability to make clothing, tools, baskets, games, musical instruments, and other crafts – and you are living comfortably day and night, and with the seasons.

These pages journal some of the skills I’ve worked on, to try out new ideas, or to practice ones learned from others.
