    Wild Earth update

    The gathering is less than two weeks away. The website hasn't been updated in awhile, we apologize for this. But the gathering is very much happening, though our tech skills may not show it.

    There has been some concerns raised about the presence of generators and sound systems at the gathering. So we have decided to scrap that idea and make our own noise. So bring your drums, guitars, voices, banjos and any other instruments you have lying around.

    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

    +Seed Exchange
    Bring your seeds to share, trade and plant.
    +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.

    Elphinstone Peace/Ecovillage Project: after the gathering, people will be invited to stay, 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.

    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.
