Fire by Friction: Wilderness Skills

11 May, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Learn to light a fire by rubbing two sticks together. Brian Robertshaw demonstrates this primitive technology while promoting his “Dirt Time” classes–survival technology, awareness, and craft.  A 25- year-veteran of teaching and developing wilderness adventure programs for schools and institutions throughout southern VT, he’ll focus on one of the four most important “lost-proofing” skills to have in your knowledge bank. Proceeds from Dirt Times upcoming classes are being donated to the “Farms for City Kids Adventure Learning program” which helps fund inner-city youth wilderness programs.
