Skill Swap II: Call for Teachers

Calling all Teachers! The second annual skill swap call for teachers is now open! Have a skill you can teach? Download our application or fill it out online.

Growing shiitakes? Spinning wool? Brewing beer? Oxy-acetylene welding? The second annual skill swap is an opportunity to teach and learn the skills that build individual and community self-reliance. We need folks with a knack in the garden, garage, kitchen or studio to share their talent with the community.

Got a skill to teach? Ask yourself these 4 questions:
1. Is it hands-on?
teach things that can actively be done, not just theory or philosophy.

2. Is it narrowly focused?
each class is just 90 minutes long, so provide a solid intro or teach a specific aspect.

3. Does it relate to self-sufficiency?
providing for ourselves or our neighbors is what counts here.

4. Can you teach it off-site?
we’ll have a kitchen and indoor/outdoor classrooms, but no specialized equipment.

Interested? We’d love to have you!
