The DIY Homesteader Festival, brought to life in 2013 over a sink of sudsy dish-water, is a one-of-a-kind Manitoban event, that offers people a fun, and connected way to learn important skills they can bring into their modern life. The festival started with the hope that, given the right environment, people would want to take the leap to learn these once common skills – from food preservation to raising chickens to herbal medicine.
Now, it’s become so much more. It’s a community. It’s a place for folks to come out, year-round, to experience nature and spend time connecting with a like-minded folks – and to let their inner homesteader shine.
