Founded in 2008, Koviashuvik is a working homestead and school of simple living. We offer the Family Sustainability Stay, Programs for Schools, The Simple Life Apprenticeship, The Bioregional Living Immersion for Colleges, and day and weekend craft classes. Through these venues we teach skills that inspire a lifeway of connection, resilience, and gratitude. Woodwork, wild gathering, tool sharpening, homestead agriculture, food preservation, basketry, fire from friction, leatherwork, acorn processing, rocket stove construction, cooking over fire, humanure composting…. These skills, from all different traditions and times, empower us to choose a positive relationship with mother earth.
