Fest Community Spotlight // Teachers

We are continually overwhelmed with the group of passionate, thoughtful teachers who come together to share their skills with you at the festival! For many of them teaching is a big part of how they make a living, and for others, it is something they do on top of their regular work of farming, making or other! What they all have in common are homesteader hearts, a willingness to carve out time to help others on their journey of self-sufficiency all within a supportive community. We are so very grateful for all of our 2019 teachers – from those who have been with the fest since 2013, to those who came out for the first time this year, and everyone in between!
