A different kind of demo day!

There wont be lectures, there wont be hypothetical ideas. This is going to be a watch and learn experience. 

Touch the tools that it takes to get the job done. See the process. Ask the questions.

When you arrive at demo day you'll be joining homesteards from all over as we go from tent to tent learning skills that have taken the experts years to learn. 

The goal is to help you skip the hard lessons and jump ahead on your homestead journey.

These demos will be intro level and aimed to help you get started from the very beginning.

We are limiting the size of the crowd so you can have your questions answered.

Each demo will be done five times throughout the day. So you won't miss a thing!

This is the time to harness the skills of our ancestors. The time to build our stores of capability. 

Hands on education is hands down the most effective way to feel ready to do the skill you've been aching to try. 

No amount of YouTube or online training beats the education we get from time watching in person. 

Join us for the the First Annual Homestead Skillshare and get your questions answered by real people, in real time.

Our events are about community & confidence building.

Here's what others are saying from our gatherings:


I was completely overwhelmed going into this, this symposium was the first thing that has brought me any calm in the sea of options. Something about introducing all the ways in one place( in a quick manner) is making it all okay.

Great Resource!

So many different voices and perspectives and SOOOOOOO many helpful tips and pep talks for parents too!

These videos are fantastic and the mamas (and dad!) have eased my heart so much. There are so many great resources in this section, this was very well put together. Can't wait to watch more, I'm feeling more and more ready now. Thank you all!

Happy for sure!

Just listening to the Different coaches and approaches has brought me comfort and tears of gratitude and joy

Thank you for sharing perspectives and experiences from across the board. This was an info-packed, compassionate springboard, and I feel much less overwhelmed.
