Earth Knack Gathering in Denver

2015 marks the 25th year of Earth Knack programming! Who ever imagined rubbing two sticks together would go this far?

01 15 EKGathering HidesWe will celebrate this milestone June 25-30 during the Earth Knack Family Gathering! This year, the gathering will be held in the south Denver area and we hope it will help all our Earth Knack family and friends–past, present, and future–more easily attend. It will be fun to return to the Front Range, where we ran our June gatherings for Earth Knack’s first ten years! Many of our long-time Earth Knack instructors reside in this part of Colorado, so we are calling our top-quality instructional team together for this event.

Drover and Beth Hall, founders of Sarqit Outdoor Living School, are co-hosting this event with Earth Knack, and have found a beautiful location for the camp at Happy Dog Ranch, a therapeutic horse ranch that borders Chatfield State Park in Littleton, Colorado. Camp set-up is Thursday June 25 (the perfect date for a 25th anniversary!), with classes running all day and Monday, June 26-29. Camp closing and pack-up happen on Tuesday, June 30.

New Additions to the Earth Knack Team

Sam and Jillian Liebl, Earth Knack internship graduates, have joined the Earth Knack team in 2015 and have implemented a satellite Earth Knack program in Salida, Colorado. They are bringing quality adult primitive skills classes to the Salida community and also launching a new kids program over the coming spring break  called Earth Kids Camp. The response to their camp has been terrific so far, and their weekend adult fire making classes have been well attended over the last month.

Jillian is also responsible for the wonderful new calendar listing on our Earth Knack web page, and the production of our 2015 class schedule brochure. See our online class schedule for all Salida class dates.


MeSimple Learning Series in Boulder



On April 25, I will be joining a team of speakers in Boulder, Colorado, for an E-Town seminar entitled Tapping the Potential of Nature and Simplicity. Scott Edwards, creator of the MeSimple Learning Series, designed this seminar and has invited me to speak about Outdoor Living and Nature Immersion. Please tune in or attend. More information at www.mesimple.com.

Enjoy the spring and please do whatever you can to get to the Earth Knack 25th Anniversary celebration June 25–30, near Denver, Colorado.

It’s been a great ride! Buckets of gratitude to the great big Earth Knack family……….

Love, Robin
