Radically Rural Remote – Fiber: Building a Regional Fibershed in this New Frontier
September 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:45 pm
Do you promote a locavore lifestyle in your rural community? Have you thought about the next step of growing, producing, and composting local textiles? Our prospective speaker, Rebecca Burgess is working on just these goals in her northern California community and wants others to build Fibersheds too.
Fiber offers a new frontier for localizing efforts that can have powerful economic, environmental, and social impacts. Soil-to-soil fiber systems can play a vital role in generating lasting prosperity with positive effects on regional economies, global climate, and the health and diversity of our ecosystems. Imagine a community built around producing, creating, marketing, and selling quality – rather than quantity – clothing. These community ties build resilience. Come and be inspired. Leave with tools to reimagine your community and its connection with clothes.
