Primitive to Prepper

  • 1435 Providence Church Road Hedgesville, WV, 25427 (map)

This family friendly spring festival brings together primitive skills like fire making and edible plants and traditional archery with more modern preparation and homesteading skills like food preservation, sustainable gardening and packing an emergency first aid kit.  These are demonstrations as opposed to classes over two days.  Food vendors S&S&W will be on site (menu here), and camping is available on campus.  Demonstrators include:


Fire Making with the North American Bushcraft School

Gourd Craft with Cindy Seuter

Primitive Traps and Snares with Ex Umbra

Small Animal Butchering with Sabrina Squires

plus fiber arts, brandy making, and much more!

Also get psyched for the trade blanket.  Bring your handmade or natural crafts and products for a great time at the trade blanket.  For more info on the trade blanket.
