Local Living Venture

Rural Skills Building & Local Food For Local Folks

Encouraging sharing and life-long learning as part of a capable, healthy community.
We are working for regional self-reliance, energy independence, environmentally friendly living, and a regionally-oriented community. 
  What we Do  
Sharing rural simple living skills through workshops and community events, based on a neighbor to neighbor model - so many skills exist locally that others are interested in learning.  We give enthusiastic people the opportunity to share their knowledge with others and build community, creating a more resourceful and healthy community - sharing ways to live more simply, economically, and environmentally friendly lives!

      Workshop and Events Schedule
    In Summer we take a partial hiatus from our chock-a-block schedule,
but we haven't gone away just because we don't send our newsletters as often!
Summer 2018 features the Basic Construction Series * Tiny House Edition, our collaborative
Pollinator Protection program (be a Pollinator Pal!), Edible Food Forest Tour and MORE as it develops!
Be sure to check back in for many more events in the Fall as well.  Please bookmark the link below for our events,
