Doing some forestry work with Eustace Conway has me super excited for this weekends workshop! Eustace had spent the last week creating scenarios for our participants to involve themselves in. These scenarios include felling trees, chainsawing fallen trees into firewood, clearing land of brush and much more! There are still spots available!
At the age of 17, in 1978, Conway left his family and home to live a primitive lifestyle, just like fellow American naturalist Mike Dodge. He chose to leave in tents in the woods instead with his family.
Conway decided to hike the entire Appalachian Trail and therefore was bonded to nature. Cutting loose to own family, Conway found the bond with nature!
