This summer we decided to test our workshop facilitation skills and help people discover what it means to be an earth inheritor. We went to four festivals altogether and each one was incredibly different and at each one we learnt more and more.
Sunrise was the first festival we attended we were there for two weeks with a group called the tin village. We built a small number of wooden and tin structures and a couple clay ovens from scratch onsite to show an example of off grid community living. It was great not only for our workshop skills development but for our learning of practical skills.
Then we ventured to cloud cuckoo land festival which is run by a great bunch of people. There we actually got to run our own space which was a great new challenge we had loads of fun decorating it. This space was host to music and dancing aswell as workshops and discussions. Embercombe storytelling festival was a big success in terms of our workshops and there was a great turn out. We put a lot of planning into those workshops which really paid off. Then lastly we went to small is festival at the Schumacher centre. It was a truly beautiful and inspiring weekend for all that went. Earth Inheritors had an amazing summer; we learnt so much and have been so inspired by the people and projects we have come across on the way.
