Take the Earth Skills Seven Day Challenge!
October 5-11, 2014
August 17th-23rd, 2014
June 1-7, 2014
This is a free virtual event that demonstrates the power of practicing these nature and wilderness skills on a daily basis.
Commit to practicing the wilderness skill of your choice for 15-20 minutes a day for seven days, and celebrate as a larger group committed to growing our skills with the support of a virtual tribe!
We'll post our commitment and goal prior to the first day, and agree to work on our chosen skill for 15-20 minutes each day at a prescribed time, (before work, during a lunch break, after dinner, etc) and fill out a very short journal entry and share photos or your learning story with our Facebook Group.
It's free to join, and you can bring your friends. The more, the merrier! We'll share ideas prior to the challenge, and be able to learn as we go in the privacy of our group, too.
I know from experience that when we work on a skill every day, our learning skyrockets and when we have a goal and purpose, it's amazing how good it feels to achieve and grow.
I want to share that feeling with you all, and hope you will join me and my staff as we make this event meaningful, not only for ourselves, but for our kids and our future. We need all the nature skills we can get, absolutely!
Hope to see you in the group!
Did I mention it's going to be fun????
Invite your friends. Do it with your partner or your kids. Do this challenge with your co-workers, or your team!
It's free, fun and you'll be amazed how fast you grow.
