Skill Swap

  • Earthwork Farm 4399 North 7 Mile Road Lake City, MI, 49651 United States (map)

Start your summer off learning some new skills, gathering with other curious folks and moonlight dancing in the beautiful Earthwork farmscape.

In partnership with Earthwork Farm and Human Nature School we present a full day of hands-on workshops, followed by dinner and live music. Choose from 20 classes in the categories of Earth, Art, Tinkering, and the Real Home Ec — taught by the community for the community. 

After a day of swapping skills, stick around for an on-farm dinner, a full concert in the barn, and camping. The music line-up will feature a waltz hour, music by Seth Bernard and our headliner, Vespre.
