Brushfire Rendezvous Schedule

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We’ve got a lot of talent coming to the Brushfire Rendezvous next weekend. I’ve put together a tentative schedule, but everything can change depending on people interests and the skills people bring to share.

There are still a few spots available, so if you haven’t registered, there’s still time.

We’re finishing week 9 of our fall semester this week and will be off the grid until Wednesday PM on our final field exercise. If you need to contact me, do so before noon on Sunday, or wait until Wednesday.

A few things. First, plan to bring your own food. We’ll do a lot of food sharing, but we’re not offering meals for people. Second, we’ll be using our humanure composting system for the event. If sawdust toilets make you squeamish, this might not be the event for you. Third, we’re counting on everyone policing their own trash.
