“Grow your own Weapons” : A Permaculture Perspective to Primitive Archery

You have a thriving food forest, perennial trees and shrubs filling your landscape. Have you thought of another use for that wood besides mulch, fuel or mushroom growing? Join us for a two hour presentation to open your eyes to a different use for the materials on your homestead that could lead on a path of Primitive skills and tools for pest control and food gathering. Beaufort Traditional owner and Permaculturalist Blayne Prowse will give a power point presentation along with some demos on different materials for bows and arrows. A shooting demo and plenty of time to ask questions about the pursuit.
