    Wild Earth is an annual gathering that happens in a different place every year and after this years gathering, people will be invited to stay, squat the land, build an ecovillage and live on the mountain for as long as they please. In so doing, we hope to protect the forest from future logging and rehabilitate the parts that have been devastated by road building and industrial logging. We can build gardens and eat the fruit of them, live like we were meant to and make the world a beautiful place again. The possibilities are endless.... so if you have always dreamed of living in harmony with nature and with beautiful people.. come be part of the project.

    The gathering starts on the 24th of may and "ends" on the 30th. Its happening on mount elphinstone. On the "sunshine coast, b.c., canada"

    here is some more info about it:

    Workshops and activities at the gathering:
    +DIY tatooing
    +Indigenous food plants and tree teas (gathering and tribal use in the Wild Earth kitchen)
    +Martial Arts- Chi Quong/Kung Fu
    +Aboriginal Rights and Title/Crown Land/Squatting and the Canadian Constitution
    +Prevention of Industrial Logging
    +Forest Survival Skills
    +Taoist Activism..balancing heart and mind/shaman and warrior
    +Shedding the Shackles of Modern anti-culture
    +Developing the Peace Village on Mt.Elphinstone!
    There are several structures up and people are welcome to stay on the mountain to rehabilitate

    the cutblocks and protect the forest from future logging.
    +Regional Roundup
    Where we let each other know what is happening in our neck of the woods
    +Black Cat Cafe

    +Direct action and what can happen
    +Primitive Skills
    Making fire, skinning animals(roadkill), building shelter, invisability...

    +Banner making

    There will hopefully be many more workshops during the gathering that will arise spontaniously. If you have ideas for workshops that you would like to share let us know.

    Food: Please bring some food enough to share or $10 per day you plan to be at the gathering. Though no one will be turned back for lack of funds. Bring your own cutlery and a bowl. People will be expected to wash their own dishes.

    Stuff we need: tarps, rope, food donations, banner making supplies (colored tape, paints, banners ect.), whatever else you think the gathering could use.

    How to get there: from vancouver take the bus to horseshoe bay. from horseshoe bay take the ferry to langdale/sunshine coast. when in langdale take the bus to Roberts Creek if you don't find someone on the ferry going to the gathering.

    If you are driving/hitching take the B&K logging road which is a few minutes past Gibsons on the right hand side. Watch for a colorful sign. There will be more signs on the road up to the camp telling you where to turn. (Its about 8km from the highway). If you miss them go to the Gumboot cafe in Roberts Creek and ask a local how to get there.

    If you are taking a car and have room for people or gear let us know and we can connect you with someone who needs a ride or stuff that needs to be brought to the gathering.

    Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you have about the gathering.

    I Am Just Windering If The Parenthesized "road Kill" Was A Pre-informative Expression Indicating That Hunting Would Be Frowned Upon On This Mountain? And Just How Much Land We Talking Bout?

    i don't speak for everyone there. but i don't feel like there is a need to hunt for animals to learn to skin with as there is plenty of roadkill around.

    oh, about the land. the mountain is big, i don't know how big. thousands of acres i'm sure. parts of it are pristine, but we will only use the areas that have been disturbed.

    Well Its A Good Thing You Dont Speak For Every One Cuz Often Times A Look At The Enternal Organs Will Let You Know If The Animal Was Rabied Or Not But Seeing How You Would Prefer The Pre-tenderization Process Offered By Goodyear And Michilan, Cuz Those Should Be Some Concerns To Have But To Each Its Reach And I Elect Not To Join This Year For I Am An Advid Hunter And Woodsman I Just Couldnt Justify It To Myself.... Anotha Thing How Could You Assume To Be Bold Enough To Profit Off Of The Suffering Of Another Animal? Yes I Hunt Them But I Ask For Permission From There Spirit First And Thank The Spirit Of Life When I Conclude My Hunts But To Frown Upon A Clean Kill Intended For Life Sustaining...to Prefer The Flesh Of An Animal That Probably Suffered At Great Lengths Before Its Expiration! How Fucking Cruel! I Wish You The Best In Life And Truly I Hope You Never Eat A Rabied Animal For Now They Have A Cure!
