Submit your art for the Highly Sustainable Functional Art Challenge! Set up a Permaculture Guild Campsite/Demonstration

Water Woman Art Challenge: As a group of eco-artists it is our goal to set new standards in sustainable art forms to provide energy, food, shelter, and water systems. By coming together as community, artists, permaculturalists, performers, musicians, natural builders, and motivated students, our structured plan is to go beyond our society’s definition of sustainability so we can be self reliant and educate others back home.

Wilderness Skills Training Camp Out

Wilderness Skills Review Overnight Camp
Saturday, May 17, 2008
10 am Shangri-La

wilderness skills You are invited to participate. After a short condensed class here (at Shangri-La in Topanga Canyon), we’ll car-pool to Zuniga and hike in to the private land in the center of Red Rock Canyon State Park for our overnight campout. Overnight camping is not allowed in the surrounding park, and almost no one knows that this 40 acres is private (owned by a close friend), so we have the whole area to ourselves. In addition to the Big Shade???s propane fire (see photo ??? classified as a barbeque for fire regulations), wilderness survival skills our multi-person shelter ‘club-house’ built by previous classes, also has a legal propane central fire. These are both great to sit around and talk, take pictures, and imagine tribal times and activities.

Beautiful Red Rock Canyon

survival skills trainingThere are a number of small dry clean sandy caves in the area that are just the right size for one or two people to sleep in. I suggest you bring everything you normally would for camping out, and then if you want to improvise so you don???t need pieces of it, great. Otherwise, just getting out there in a comfortable sleeping bag is stretch enough for most people.

Please bring your own lunch for Saturday, and pot luck contributions for an evening meal Saturday and for breakfast Sunday, as well as any snacks you might want. We???ll light a charcoal barbeque Saturday night, and I???ll bring steaks (we can visualize that our trapping was a success). The moon will be almost full.
