About the Event
Join us for a day of Rewilding at the beautiful Black Barn Permaculture Farm in Stanley, Victoria.
A day of learning various land-based living skills that bring us into deeper relationship with our local ecology and our land-based ancestry.
For the longest of time, humans lived primarily off the land as a part of the land.
We find immense value in re-learning the skills that were (and still are in some parts of the earth) practised by all of our hunter-gatherer ancestors all across the earth, as these are the skills that literally shaped us to be the humans we are today. We find a deep sense of connection and relationship is gained when delving into these skills, remembering our place amongst ecology.
Throughout this day workshop, we will be teaching:
- Introduction to Rewilding, What is it, how can we apply to it to our lives.
- Honouring the whole animal & Traditional tanning methods. We will discuss these topics whilst handing around various animal crafts we have made & speak about the process.
- How to make fire by friction, using only what the earth provides and your hands. A hands-on workshop on making fire by friction using the hand-drill method. You will learn about various materials that are good for making fire and how to harvest ethically.
- Foraging wild foods and medicines. Learn how to identify various wild plants and use them for food and medicine.
- Learn how to make a wild plant medicine balm with all natural ingredients that we will forage. You will get to take home the balm!
This will be a jam packed day full of knowledge on how we can live closer to the land, emphasising on building relationship with local ecology.

About the facilitators.
Wild Beings Australia is a nature-based community co-founded by Eva & Will. They run overnight family bush camps in NSW delving into Rewilding, re-creating the village structure & emphasising on outside living and ancestral skills. Eva and Will have spent the most part of the last 5 years living outside, learning these various ancestral living skills and using them in every-day life. Having only eaten wild game meat for the last 5 years, they have really delved into wild game scavenging, butchering, bone tools, rendering fat, naturally tanning the skins into useable leather & crafting useful items from the leather they make. With a strong passion for learning the skills of our ancestors, they have dedicated their lives to sharing what they have learnt with others and building a lifestyle around regenerative choices.
They see the value in sharing these practical earth skills that re-connect, especially in a time of such disconnect.
