March 30, 2019—The Hands On! Skills Fair is an annual event that brings together the community to share and learn skills. Presented in partnership with Meadowbrook Community Center, we call this Fair “Hands On” because it is based on actually doing skills to learn them. Folks from our neighborhoods step up to share skills such as food preservation and preparation, basic plumbing and electrical, seed saving, soap making, tool repair, carpentry, pruning, gardening, simple bike maintenance, and making lotions, just to name a few. Through the Skills Fair, we share the joy, satisfaction and security of being able to provide for our own needs, shifting from dependence on giant corporations to a healthy interdependence with our local community.
Each year we hold this event in winter as a way of kicking off the new year. It requires many volunteer hours in teaching, organizing and day-of helpers, so if you are interested in being involved contact email@example.com, Subject: HandsOn
