NOT-SO-SIMPLE IS BACK!
We are excited to partner with Groundswell Community and Retreat Center to produce a smaller gathering the weekend of July 26-28th, 2019 on their beautiful land just south of Boonville. This year’s event will be limited to fewer participants, so purchasing tickets before the event will be necessary.
Save the Date and stay posted for updates regarding ticket sales and site details.
The Not-So-Simple Living Fair, a weekend of hands-on workshops and demonstrations celebrating rural living and homesteading skills July 26th, 27th, and 28th, 2019 at the Groundswell Community and Retreat Center!
Keynote Speaker 2019: Jim Tarbell
E.F. Schumacher’s Small is Beautiful Theory of Economics advocates for appropriate technologies as if people and the planet mattered. This concept blends with the Not So Simple message because our workshop presenters share appropriate technologies that teach self reliant, sustainable and regenerative rural living skills.
Jim Tarbell, an early advocate and supporter of Building the Economy for Our Common Good in Mendocino County is our Keynote speaker. He and the rest of the folks at the Grassroots Institute and four dozen participants in workshops to Build the Economy for Our Common Good have spent the past two years putting together the Map of the Economy for the Common Good. He and Carrie Durkee will speak about the vision and purposes of the map and how participants in the Not So Simple Living Workshops can all be part of it.
