Frank Teaching tracking

When people are in extreme situations, they revert to their training…what kind of training do you have?

Earthwork Programs has been teaching these skills for more than 10 years.

  • Make fire with confidence in wet conditions as well as dry.
  • Learn the power of plants and their uses.
  • Discover ways to bring yourself closer to the land through tracking and awareness.

Sunday, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

SHELTER BUILDING

Building a shelter is both a needed survival skill and a great way to enjoy the outdoors this season.
We have had so many people learn skills with us here and then go home and build these right in their backyard.

  • Learn the mindset when facing an experience where you may have to spend the night
  • Choosing a safe location and what elements to look for before you can start building.
  • The importance of attention to detail that can make the difference between struggle and thriving!

Learn traditional skills that have been passed on through generations!
In this family- and adult-oriented class, you will learn the basics of making shelter.
Learn the skills to have piece of mind in the woods. Be prepared for comfort in the outdoors–without a tent.

WILD EDIBLES & MEDICINALS

Sunday, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Join Frank Grindrod of Earthwork Programs for a unique “how to,” hands-on immersion experience in WILD FOOD and allow it to complement your current culinary habits and lifestyle. Come away with skills in correct identification of wild edibles and medicinals you can find right outside your back door. Because we specialize in certain plants in depth, there are certain ones we’ll be reviewing from last class as well.

You will learn how and when to harvest by season and in what habitat to seek out your favorite wild edibles.

Discover how seasonal berries provide edible and medicinal benefits for humans and animals.

Want to stay overnight Saturday? Camping ($10/person, bring your own tent & supplies) is available at a nominal cost. Register by 8/13.

CAMPING

* Bring own tent & supplies–$10/person

You can set up your tent in our big field – an 8-acre field of mowed grass. It is a short walk from there up to the main lodge where you can use the kitchen and dining room (the water is shut off during the winter).

Book CAMPING now!

CABIN–ONE AVAILABLE

* Rustic cabin w/bunkbed (bring own linens/sleeping bags)–$20/person

Cabin has electricity and is very plain, like a backyard shed. If it is cold, there may be a space heater available. The bunk is metal camp-style with foam mattresses. You will need to bring your own sleeping bags. Cabin is just a few steps from the lodge where you can use the kitchen and dining room (the water is shut off during the winter).

The bathroom and shower facilities are not available during the winter.

Bouchard Lodge

The Lodge is a rustic multi-purpose camp building.

The kitchen has a commercial gas range, several refrigerators, 2 sinks (water is not available during the winter), and a microwave. It is fully equipped with pots, pans, utensils, plates, cups, etc.  We just ask that you clean up after yourselves and recycle into the appropriate containers.

The dining area is very flexible. We have folding tables and chairs that you can use as needed, a small nature library for reference, and a cabinet of board games. There is an old tv and a pile of videotapes that you are welcome to use.
