Powerdown TV show and Ecovillages
Reskilling - A Transition Gathering
21st - 23rd August | Cloughjordan Ecovillage | North Tipperary
A Transition gathering offering a taste of community living for three days
in the summer with the opportunity to learn some vital new skills in
Permaculture, horticulture, community gardens, natural building and a number
of crafts and trades. With workshops in many essential skills, a mix of
short talks, film screenings, activities for kids and some evening
celebration with DJ Will Softly, we have the perfect environment to learn,
share, network and build our capacity to thrive in a very uncertain future.
‘On spaceship earth there are no passengers, only crew’
This event is based on ideas and processes for gatherings based on
participation. The small event will be, in many ways, self organising with
participants taking responsibility for the upkeep of the environment, their
camp and their food. As they say at Burning Man – No Spectators!
There will be spaces on a number of two day craft and trade workshops. These
will include, dry-stone wall construction, bridge building, fencing and
hedges, herblore, cob ovens and more. The cost for participants of these
workshops will be €130 which includes materials, two nights camping and
access to other talks, films and the evening celebration.
Many people will come for just the talks and short workshops and the
experience of community life. A €30 or a €50 family ticket will give you
access to the campsite, a number of short workshops and talks, Village
tours, films and the evening celebrations on the Saturday night.
Volunteers, helpers and crew needed. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you are
